While most of us take some time on Thanksgiving to be thankful, I want to take a moment on this sunny June 11th to reflect just how blessed I am. Today was the last day of school before celebrating summer break. My kids left the school with hugs from their teachers, new knowledge in their brains and lots of excitement and memories shared with their friends. O yeah, and my youngest got to hit a piñata! I was especially thankful when she suggested I put a couple pieces of candy in my pocket to share with her brother after school. Kid you not, without me proposing this idea to her first. These moments make up for the bickering I get to enjoy on some other days!
After school, we drove to a theater at a community college about a half an hour away where my daughter had a dance performance. She has worked hard all year towards mastering this new skill: tap dance. I was so proud of her getting onto the stage and showing us all the cool new moves she learned.
It was an eventful day and needless to say, I'm tired. But the content, thankful kind of tired. I'm off to get some rest so we can enjoy a lovely first day of summer break tomorrow. But before I sign off, here is my most recent design in the shop. It's all about fun in the sun: swimming, snorkeling, swim team.... whatever your plans are this summer, enjoy every minute of it! If you like this design, please don't forget to share it by clicking the little social media buttons! Thank you!
Alright, moms! Summer break is upon us… or inching closer by the minute for some of us. While we all look forward to having some fun in the sun with our kids, there just may be that time over summer break when the kids will hang all over the couch loudly complaining they’re bored.
Well, you will be well prepared with the free printable I’m offering you today! It will chase away any “Moooooom, I don’t know what to do! I’m soooooo bored” moments. You’ll whip out this anti-boredom calendar and they will instantly have 35 activities to choose from! 35! Voila!
They can follow the calendar in any order they’d like, going by the days of the week or randomly, coloring the squares of the activities they have completed.
You will find that you don’t need to buy fancy stuff for these activities. The kids can mostly use stuff you already have laying around the house.
These activities were created with kids in elementary school or older in mind, but you can adapt these fun ideas for younger kids in almost all cases. For example, instead of perfecting a cartwheel, try perfecting a somersault instead.
If you click on the image below, you can download an easy pdf file that you can print at home in pretty color or just simple black and white. While I would love it if you sign up in the side bar to join my email list or like my page on Facebook, this is not required to receive this free printable gift. Just my gift to you!
I am curious if you found this free printable helpful. Did the kids find it fun? Please let me know by leaving me a quick comment. Thank you so much and have a great summer!
