I am a SAHM again! What can I do w/a 7 and 11 yr old this summer?

I need some suggestions. We have a great local public pool here but what else do you think I could do with these kids? I am at a loss. Need help! Thanks!

  • Regal movie theaters have a free movie morning. I don't have a link right now, but you can google it.

  • Go to your local public library, sign up for the Summer Reading Program, and sign up for any other activities they offer. It is free!

  • Take nature walks and start a shoebox collection, research the things you collect at the library.

    Start a story journal. Each week give them a story starter -- a picture, a beginning sentence or an idea -- and have them write about it.

    Get out all those board games that mostly just collect dust and start a family game day tradition

    Ask them what they want to do this summer

    Have fun!
