Summertime can be a crazy time in our house. I am excited to have the boys home and get so much time with them but it’s not long before the “I’m so bored” starts. This year I decided to take control and get organized from the start!!
Now here’s the thing…with all of our summer plans we have to accommodate an 8 year old, a 7 year old who is in a wheelchair and a 20 month old! That’s quite a wide range luckily my 8 year old is easily entertained. My 7 year old may have special needs and be fully dependent on me but is pretty much go with the flow. It’s the crazy 20 month old that isn’t as easy (thank goodness lots of the activities will be done during her naptime) those that aren’t can be adapted to her age. So after lots of searching on Pinterest for some great ideas I found this schedule with a different theme for each day. I kind of loved it but made my own little changes to it.

So based on this fun daily scheduled I’ve planned our enjoyable, bored-free summer!! Will every day go exactly as planned…definitely not! With Grant being in summer school 3 hours a day we have to tweak some of our plans a bit but by the end of the week we get all our awesome activities done! Here are some of our plans this month:
- Glow in the Dark Playdough
- Make Butter in a Jar
- Balloon Elephant Cards
- Set out Kindness Rocks at the park
- Muddy Buddies
- Homemade Lava Lamp
- Leave snacks for mailman
These are just a few of the exciting plans this summer! Stay tuned for updates on certain activities and how the kiddos feel about them.
Have a blessed day!
