After lunch I took the kids bowling thanks to Kids Bowl Free. This is such a wonderful program. Every day each child gets 2 free games during the summer. You can purchase the adult pass for $24. There are some coupon codes floating around to get a discount on the pass. If you decide to sign up, please use my email (chufalar@gmail) as a referral so that each of us gets entered into the FREE Disney trip contest. If you can find some bowling shoes for your kids, you'll save even MORE money since the shoes are $2.50 per rental. I was lucky to find a pair of shoes myself at the ARC and I got them half off! The nice thing about bowling is that it's indoors and cool. Plus, it's 2 hours out of 7 hour day. So that's less planning for me to do. The girls, especially, had a great time. They met a little boy named Ryan who just finished Kindergarten. It was so cute. The 3 of them had a great time chatting it up.
The kids were pretty tuckered out after bowling. Our craft for Make Something Monday was very simple. I purchased some little clay pots for them to paint and modge podge. Each chose the paint and fabric to personalize their beautiful pots. It was so simple to do. They painted the rim first and I used a hair dryer to dry them quickly so that we could modge podge the fabric. The fabric was cut in strips and stuck on. Then I went over it with one more coat of modge podge. Later tonight I'll seal it with an acrylic sealer. When they're dry, we'll plant a seed in them and watch them grow over the summer.
I'm so excited to have these 3 kids with me. I've attached our schedule for the month if you wanted to follow us. A lot of what we're doing is pinned on my board.
I hope that all of you are starting your summers out GREAT! And I can't wait to see what FUN you guys are having this summer.
