Family Summer Fun List

j0262228Isn’t summer great? It is hard to believe that school is just around the corner. If you haven’t already done this, you might want to make a Family Summer Fun List

The Family Summer Fun List is fun for all and sometimes requires a sense of humor in it’s creation and implementation.  Call a family meeting and have everyone in the family write down 2 things they want to do before school starts.  Now, be prepared because kids have great imaginations.  As the ideas are presented, just write them down, ask questions and try really hard not to say no…or laugh.  Just be positive and have fun with it.   Post your list on the fridge and have a good time trying to make these fun things happen.

The Zoo and Children’s Museum usually make our summer list but we have also had such simple requests as to eat ice cream, have a picnic, make s’mores and have a play date with friends.  A couple of years ago, one of my kids suggested we go to Hawaii (yes, they dream big like me).  Well,  as fun as this sounded, we just couldn’t mange that one.  So instead, we improvised and had a Hawaiian Island Party.  The kids helped plan the menu, wore their swimsuits and we all had a blast.  It was our at home trip to the islands!  Such fun!

Don’t let the summer get away from you. Plan some fun times and enjoy your family!  You’re kids will thank you.
