Eat Breakfast and Clear Dishes
Tidy Bed and Bedroom
School Books (I buy either the Summer Book through their school or a Summer Bridge book, and they do a page a day to keep up with skills they learned in the previous school year.)
Dinner and Clear Dishes
Clean Up Toys
We also make time each week to go on some outings like the Make n Take at AC Moore, trips to the library, family movie day at Regal Theater, and other fun summer activities.
Part of the daily list though is Art Time. Most days, the kids just dig into their supplies and let their imaginations run wild but some days they want a bit of inspiration. To give them a little help, I put together an idea binder. Going online, I printed off a bunch of kid craft ideas that work for their ages, interests, the supplies we generally have on hand, and that don't make too much of a mess or require tons of supervision from Mom.
Great sites to check out for ideas are:
I printed 'em out, slipped them into clear page protectors and put them in a binder. If a craft came with patterns, I just put them in a facing page.
pick from the jar!
