I love having my kids home in the summer. No more running around to get out the door for school and activities. Instead we get to indulge in lazy mornings in our pajamas and calmly move through the days. Ah.. summertime.
That being said, if I let me kids do whatever they want all day in the summer, they will inevitably fight, bicker and get bored. So how do I keep them entertained through the summer? I have summer camp at home. It’s more cost effective than sending them to camp, and we get to learn something new as a family. Each week I pick a theme to learn about and we incorporate a field trip to tie it all together. Keep in mind, we do have lots of relaxing down time – but it’s nice to have some things planned to keep them learning and engaged. Click on the links to view my plan for each week. Keep in mind, my kids are 6,5 and 3. My plans are tailored to them, but could easily be modified for older kids. Enjoy and please share your ideas and experiences!
