We have declared this summer the summer of fun over at the Shull house!
Several of my friends and I have been discussing lately how we can do simple things every day this summer for our kiddos to make this season extra special (and to create fun memories!).
With Kensington heading off to kindergarten this fall, I know my time at home with her is about to be limited, so I want to make the most of every single day. We will still have our structure, routine, naps and such but with just a little extra fun peppered in each day. Here are some of my ideas so far…
1. Meet friends to swim
2. Go to the park
3. Eat popsicles on the patio
4. Make homemade ice cream
5. Visit the library
6. Go to the museum
7. Go to the zoo
8. Ride our bikes to friends’ houses
9. Surprise daddy at work
10. Go see a movie
11. Get a snow cone
12. Happy Hour at Sonic for slushes
13. Have movie day inside in our pjs
14. Blow bubbles and use sidewalk chalk outside
15. Stay up late to find fireflies
16. Go visit our town square
17. Make patriotic cupcakes for July 4th
18. Water balloon fight in the front yard
19. Play in the sprinklers
20. Go to the water park in town
My kids have been so excited about our “summer of fun”! And seriously, some days, it’s just a little popsicle outside…but to them, it’s special…and that’s what I want. I want them to have special little moments.
What are some of your summer of fun activities? I would love to hear! I refuse to just beat the heat this year. I refuse to just survive (which in Texas, can be really easy to do during the hot summer months!). I want to look back and remember how we made the most of every single day God gave us.
