Summer Themed Days

With school out, and some Covid restrictions still in place, many parents are looking for easy ways to keep their kids happy and entertained. I'm a big fan of flexible schedules during the summer months. I like a little structure to keep the family on track... but with lots of free time to play and relax. I love the idea of creating theme days, don't you? You could do it for a week, or you could apply it to the entire summer. Check out the poster below.

To print a copy of the schedule (above): click on the schedule, right-click, save it to your computer, and print it like a regular 8x10 photo.

I have also included some helpful links below.

Make it Monday
Get creative with art and crafts. Paint rocks, make pom poms from yarn, fashion friendship bracelets, try toilet roll weaving, have a painting party, etc…

Take a trip Tuesday
Use your imagination to take a pretend trip, learn about a new place, go virtual sightseeing on YouTube, camp in the backyard, go on a fun outing, etc..

Get wet Wednesday

Thinking Thursday
Enjoy fun and educational activities like doing science experiments, reading, writing, etc…

Fun food Friday
Play with food. For example: eat donuts from a string, make ice cream in a bag, mix up some edible playdough, decorate cupcakes and cookies, make homemade ice cream sandwiches, visit an ice cream stand, whip up some homemade lemonade), etc...

Doesn't this look like a fantastic way to spend a week? The great part is that the summer theme day schedule is super-flexible. You can just do one activity a day, or you can fill your days with fun adventures. It's totally up to you. Have fun!
