i'm not here to say NO camps, EVER.
and fun. some are really fun.
and not just the kiddos.
you have fun too...WITH them if possible:)
be a kid.
sleep in. spend time together.
fly by the seat of your pants, without plans.
so many kids are over-planned in the school year.
chill a bit in summer time.
this is childhood, right?
ran through sprinklers,
in fact, if we had come in the house,
asking our moms for a glass of water (no bottled water yet)
they would have told us to go get a drink from the hose.
and stop coming in and out of the house.
play outside already!:) hahaha ...the good ol days!
dirty feet from slipping our shoes off and playing in the grass,
maybe watch a tv show
we were responsible for making our own fun, thank you very much:)
and by the way...here's a thought.
UNPLUG the computers and iPads this summer.
at least some of the time.
because they will come to expect it and you will hate the words
"i'll show you bored if you say that one more time"!!! LOL
and enjoy summer with the kids.
i'm sure you've seen the "i'm bored" jars all over pinterest.
COOL idea...but as you can tell, i am not a fan of that phrase.
so instead i suggest to you a fun jar...like this:
make a rule...they draw one each day, or on a rainy day.....
anything you choose.
here are some great ideas.....
