We participate in the Library's summer reading program. I find out about the free concerts in the park. I find out about interesting and unusual things to do in the area - this spring we went to an "alligator parade" at the Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary! Talk about unusual!
Finally, I pick a theme for the week. I find books in the library on that theme, and come up with art projects related to that. I usually write a full lesson plan and post it to my blog to share with other moms. This week we'll do Birds, next week is the Fourth of July, and the following week I may do Zoo Animals, Smell, Beat the Heat, Rainy Days, and Emotions.
Of course, there is the usual summer activities - trips to the beach, the park, the library, McDonald's playland, and a family trip to visit relatives! All in all, we keep pretty busy.
