As another school year ends, and we as mother's start to mentally prepare ourselves for the war front AKA having the kids home all day, ery day...let's not just pray we survive but let's plan and prepare and plan some more to actually enjoy the time off we have with the kiddos.
Because you all know that before we even blink, another school year will be starting and we want NO regrets right? These moments in our lives pass by quickly enough so lets take a deep, mama breath and plunge right in to the hot, summer "I'm bored" months with activities and a pledge to enjoy the entire thing. Obviously, I'm trying to psych myself up..I mean ..5 kids home..ALL...DAY...LONG??
But ladies..Pinterest and I have got you covered. To go along with our daily chores and our Summer Bucket List..I have included a few realistic activities on the el cheap that all the littles in our lives will love.
1. $1 plastic table cloth and $1 shaving cream (thank you Dollar Tree) and clean-up is a breeze..aka the hose.
2. Sidewalk Painting Supplies: muffin tin, cornstarch, water, food coloring and those sponge paintbrushes (you can get a package at Dollar Tree) Tip-use a lot of food coloring or it dries really light
3. Squirt Gun painting..I think yes! Although I see this turning into a "paint your sibling more than the paper" type of activity ;)
4. And the classic outdoor take on Twister
And Amber and I are total believers in this whole "mom" thing..in case you couldn't tell..what with a total of 8 kids between us ;) So we are taking the Summer off too. We want to focus all our love and what little patience we may have in the Summer on creating moments and sporadic pool/hiking trips with all these littles that rule our Universe..in the best way possible of course.
So we love you all and will see you this fall. Peace out yo! And Happy Summer-ing!!
