It's our last summer before my oldest heads off to kindergarten, so we're going to make the most of it. We made a list of 100 things we want to do together this summer, and we're off to a great start. The best part is most of the activities are free or inexpensive and take little- to no preparation. I made sure to include some indoor activities for the days it's just too hot and the pools are crowded. All of the food items I listed are cooking activities we can do together. I'm really excited to make cars out of boxes then have a pretend "drive-in movie." I still remember the red and orange box cars my dad made for my sister and me one year. My son is way into astronomy, so we're going to make sure to let him stay up late in August to watch the meteor showers.
"The List" has taken center stage on our fridge. And my son so proudly places a checkmark or two on the list every day. I love it too, because it takes the pressure off of me to plan something exciting every day. What are your plans this summer?
