School’s out for summer and mothers everywhere are scrambling to come up with ideas to keep their kids entertained for the next three months. Oh, wait… maybe that’s just me?

I’ve been saving up fun craft ideas, art projects, games and activities to do this summer when my kids start tossing around the dreaded “B” word– you know — B.O.R.E.D. I am going to keep those kids busy so they don’t just sit around watching TV or worse, fighting with each other. If you’re a mom, I know you can relate!

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite summer activity ideas with you. Be sure to bookmark this page or pin it so you can refer back to it all summer.

I started by printing out these pages so my kids know all of the things they need to do each day before they can ask to watch TV or play on the computer.

Hopefully this will help provide structure, ensure that the most important things get done every day and limit screen time.

And to all you mothers out there… good luck. It can be frazzling, but the very best days with my kids have been on lazy summer days.
