Summer is upon us, and I see people pinning checklists and activities like crazy, in hopes that us mothers will have memorable activities with our kids that include skipping and holding hands on a daily basis along with ZERO electronic time. Who needs electronics when we have each other?!?  In all truth, I LOVE summer!  I am not one of those lamenting that the end of the year is upon us, because I actually get excited to hang out with my kids and do whatever we want. But if I don’t have a plan, summer will slip through my fingers and I will have missed out on the opportunity to play with my kids. When my oldest finished kindergarten, I came up with the SUMMER FUN JAR. I made a super long list of activities, games, research topics, treats, & outings. We picked out 5 a week, but sometimes it was 5 outtings and it was just exhausting! We did this for a few years, and I never figured it out….

But I’ve decided if something is going to happen whether losing weight, exercising, or family fun, you have to MAKE A PLAN!!! So this is my simple plan.  I figure it covers 2-3 hours each day (roughly) and with our morning gym time, afternoon down time, shorter pool visits, and some electronics thrown in (lets be real) we’ve got the days covered.

If you want some ideas for something fun to do, check out my fun with kids pinterest page. I’ll keep adding to it. I also plan to implement the summer snacking agenda I introduced last summer.
