Summer Ideas For Kids! #1

Happy Friday! I thought I would do a little summer fun ideas "series" to help keep the kids busy this summer. I'm always on look out for different ideas to do with the kids for when there in the "I'm bored there's nothing to do"  kinda mood. Hopefully it will help give you fun ideas to do with your kids : ) The weather was beautiful and warm until the last day of school. Then it turned cold and rainy (go figure!). So we've been doing inside stuff. Here's what we did today.

Make a Monster & Write a Story
  • Paper
  • Google eyes
  • Markers / colored pencils / crayons
Glue google eyes on a piece of paper. Have the kids drawn there monsters around the eyes and what ever else they would like. When there done have them make up a story to go with there picture. The kids really get into it and it will keep them busy for awhile. That's always a good thing!

Hopeful these ideas help you keep this kids occupied and from being bored at least for a little while : )  Let me know if you find these ideas helpful.
