five brilliant things to do this summer
Who says summer fun has to be expensive? Here are five things to do this summer that won't break the bank & are sure to remain with your kids forever..
1. Throw your own parade! Grab some markers & let your kids design their parade signs. Then dress in your most fun garb, pull out your best noise makers, and hit the sidewalks! Don't forget to invite the neighborhood kids!
2. Outdoor movie night. Let your kids experience the fun of a drive-thru theatre in their own backyard with the use of a projector & the side of your home! Set up lawn chairs, and invite friends. Don't forget the popcorn. (Don't have a projector? Don't splurge yet, chances are you might know somebody who does.)
3. Backyard camping. When you're five, camping outside is nothing but magical. Count the stars, roast some marshmallows, and share stories with your kids. If you're really brave, sleep out there, too.
4. Host an art show! Kids love to show off their works. Hang their favorite masterpieces around the house, put together some refreshments, and invite some friends & family to come check out your kids' work. (It's a great excuse for an anytime mini-party & your kids will love it!)
5. Hold a creative cooking challenge. First, let your kids draw out a plan. Challenge them to come up with a new, tasty recipe. Help them decide what ingredients they will need. Then gather up their ingredients and let them get to work (helping out with the oven, or other needs along the way). Let everyone get a nibble of all of the creations, and be sure to gush over the delicious creativity!
These are a just a few of the things on our summer time to-do list, and we can't wait to share with you guys as we go along, and check each off. In the meantime, do you have any great ideas we should add to our list?
