I love lists. I love color-coding. I love Summer Vacation. Put them all together and you have our Summer Bucket List!!!
Last year was the first time I used the calendar idea for us. It worked pretty well and the girls asked for it again. The only difference is that this year I opted for rainbow-colored post-it notes. Looks pretty, doesn't it!
"Snuggle Time" Sunday
"On the Move" Monday
"Time to Read" Tuesday
"What's Cooking" Wednesday
"That's Art" Thursday
"Finding Fun" Friday
I don't have a "theme" for Saturday.....because Nani will have gymnastics on Saturday mornings and then we'll make our weekly trip to the Farmer's Market.
For each theme day, I have a list of suggested activities that we can choose from as well.
Now, before I get any comments about being "strict" or "scheduling every second" or "allowing my kids to enjoy their summer break", I have to say that:
1) My kids ASKED if I was going to do this again for them. They love having ideas to pick and choose from and have fun adding ideas to the list;
2) This is a very LOOSE idea for the summer. They are free, every day to do as they choose and we are very flexible about our summer days.
3) The only thing I am strict about is their reading. They will read every day.....whether it's at bedtime or some time during the day, but they will read at least 30-minutes a day.
Do YOU have a Summer Bucket List? If so, share your ideas or blog post in the comments! I would love to see what some of you are doing!
HAPPY SUMMER VACATION!!
