I am not going to lie…this summer is kind of kicking my butt! I love spending the extra time with my kiddos and the relaxed schedule…but for some reason I am having a hard time balancing everything right now: time and quality activities with my kids, family time, play dates, cleaning, laundry, cooking, crafting, working on my home and blogging. It is a lot to balance but my family always comes first.
However, my kids are also having a tough time adjusting to summer too I think. The first month was great, we all loved the more flexible schedule. But now, in all honesty, I think my daughter is just bored. I can plan play dates, invite friends over, play outside, go the library and pool all week long, but she is definitely lacking the extra element of “school” in her daily routine.
Am I the only one experiencing this?!
So I am working on finding a balance in my life and in my children’s lives and so decided to devote the next few days to BOREDOM BUSTER ideas.
These will be simple but fabulous ideas and activities you can do with the kids. Ideas that will keep their minds going and their interest peaked but don’t take a lot of prep work on your end. The perfect summer craft.
So join me today and next week as I share a few fun and fabulous ideas that are kid tested (by my kids) and mother approved (by me 🙂 I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
First up, is Spelling Word Flowers. This is fun and seriously simple!
I am even giving you my flower page as a FREE PRINTABLE!
All you need to do it print off my free flower page, use a 2″ circle punch to punch out 52 circles out of paper. Then write the alphabet letters on the circles, twice. (I did one set of uppercase and one set of lowercase letters.)
And let your kids get creative too!
Have a happy summer!
