Summertime is a great time to spend with your children, but often early in the summer we run out of ideas for things to do. There is only so much money to spend on extra activities, and it seems like kids can play forever. Get control of summertime activities with a few easy suggestions.
First, have a plan for the week. This let’s kids know ahead of time what they can expect. If you are planning only one activity per week, pick a day later in the week, like Wednesday or Thursday, that is set aside for activity day. The kids have spent all year with a school schedule, give them one at home too.
Pick some chores for your kids to do that have to be completed every day. Make sure their jobs are done before they go play. Having jobs set aside for them to do each day gets them up and going, and gives you some time in the morning to get your own work done.
Find activities that don’t cost any money. Going to the park, having a water day, visiting the library, taking a nature walk, and going to the beach are some ideas that don’t cost anything. Check with your community center or local library for special events during the summer. Depending on your budget, pick which activities you want to spend money on and let the kids to extra jobs to earn the activity.
It seems like by the time we get summer down, it is time to get ready for school again. This year, plan ahead so you can get into the summertime rhythm and have fun with your kids all summer long. You will all enjoy the summer a lot more.
