Apparently, they still need some sort of structure to their day. So I opened up Excel and started typing. :)
I also try to mix things up by planning out of the house activities. We're blessed to live in an area where there are lots of kid events offered. In fact there's so much that I was afraid I'd miss out on some great opportunities (some of which we can count towards next year's schooling.) To get all that info together, I opened up the calendar template in Publisher. I picked a cool template option and fun summery color scheme and then typed in everything that I had info for.... library programs, $1 roller skating, craft days at Michael's, free concerts, and $1 movie days. I also added in the week the younglings will attend a local day camp and our Vacation Bible School week.
After I printed it, I realized that some of the events required pre-registration so I went back and high-lighted those. Now at a glance, I can see all the activities I was hoping to participate in and make sure we don't miss out!
So between the daily/weekly schedule and the extra events, we should be all set for some summer fun. If not, there's always the I'm Bored Jar and the sand table.
