As I have been going NUTS ALREADY with the "what is there to do's.....I'm BORED...etc" I decided to google and find some fun and creative ways to get my kids OUT and ACTIVE! I have come across some FABULOUS Blogs with the perfect ideas...
I fell in LOVE with the Blog from the second I entered. I am all about lists and organization and cleanliness. http://cleanmama.blogspot.com/2010/05/summer-fun-container.html
The "sisters stuff" ALWAYS has fun ideas and creativity way for mom's to stay happy, but I wanted to share there list of 100 things to do with the kids this summer
I think we ALL love Tip Junkie and all of her FABULOUS tips.... :O) She rocks on SO many levels!
When we were kids if we said we were bored our mom gave us a chore. So I am currently working on a "I'm Bored" jar and if they say I'm Bored they have to pick a chore...which will NOT be a fun chore...such as
-picking up dog poop...weeding...things kids REALLY don't want to do...I think they'll get the point after having to pick something to do out of that jar.
But I made this poster that is going to hang right by my back door with 24 fun things the kids can do ALL by thenselves...(which the rule is they have to do it for a half hour before they ask to do something else....
