Summer vacation is wonderful… for about three days. That’s about when the chorus of “I’m bored!” starts ringing through the house. I’ve created this 28 day summer activity calendar to help you keep boredom at bay. Print out the calendar, stick it on the fridge, and point your kids to it everytime they complain that there’s nothing to do.

WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE INCLUDED ON THE SUMMER ACTIVITY CALENDAR?
When I was assigning activities to this calendar, I deliberately chose activities that were low- or no-cost so that they would be possible for all families to participate. The prompts will have your kids playing with toys they likely already own, rummaging through your recycling bin, and using inexpensive art supplies like crayons and chalk.
If you look closely, you will see a pattern with the daily activities. Sunday’s activities encourage arts and crafts. On Mondays, your kids will be delving into Science-related activities. Tuesdays are for physical activity! I blocked every Wednesday out for a trip to the library. On Thursdays, your kids will be encouraged to take on spatial awareness and engineering tasks. Your family will experiment with food fun on Fridays. Finally, you will end the week with family fun nights on Saturdays.
Obviously, you can mix and match days to fit your family’s schedule and lifestyle, but I am hoping this calendar will be a springboard for some summer fun this year.
