I nabbed our schedule from Stephanie at Somewhat Simple. This set up is great because it's structured, but changeable. I had so much fun browsing Pinterest for our summer activities, but probably did stress myself out here and there since I've never planned a summer for my kids.
All of our Monday crafts were under $50 for the 3 kids. Bowling will also occupy our time thanks to Kids Bowl Free at our local alley.
On Tuesdays we'll either be at the library, the zoo, or the Fine Arts Center. I love that we could spend hours at all of them.
Wednesdays will be vegan cooking with kids. This is HUGE for me. Why? I'm not a fan of messes or lack of control in the kitchen. Seriously. I have issues. It could stem from the fact that I wasn't allowed to make messes when I was a child. That's a whole other post. We'll be doing some yummy baking and hopefully eating. (These kids better eat all the sweet treats...)
Service Day Thursdays, I think, will be my favorite. It's never too young to instill the concept of others. We'll be writing letters, making homeless bags, doing kind acts, etc. and talk about why we do these services.
And Fridays will be spent doing things out of our bucket list. We made a list of fun, either free or cheap, things to do over the summer and wrote them down on popsicle sticks. So on Fridays, we'll pick a stick or two and go and do that activity. I can't wait.
I didn't plan the weekends, but I did pin a BUNCH of things for us to do. So Summer...BRING IT!
