since this momma has been so busy lately i decided to try something this summer to help get the kids involved in staying organized during july and august. a summer fun calendar!
it helps me to have a reminder to not just work but to also have some fun and play with my girlies. i really love calendars, day timers, journals etc and heck - any excuse to draw and color is always good in my book! so we decided to make our own summer fun jumbo calendar! i got the kiddos to draw the calendar and then write and color in all the activities they would like to do each day! they had a blast doing it and so did i.
they wake up each day and run to check what's on the calendar and we plan accordingly.
now don't get me wrong, i'm not supermom by a long shot. not every activity gets done but it's fun to try! and it's even more fun to come up with imaginative ones like on august 1st my oldest wants to open her own sewing shop!!! i mean how cute is that? she is going to set up her own pretend shop in the condo and sell her sewn wares. my heart is bursting! adorbs!
would you like to make one too? get your kiddos to follow along with the pics below and help them draw up your own jumbo SUMMER FUN CALENDAR!
STEP ONE: DRAW YOUR CALENDAR LINES
STEP TWO: WRITE IN YOUR MONTH, DAYS OF THE WEEK AND NUMBERS
STEP THREE: COLOR & WRITE IN YOUR ACTIVITIES
STEP FOUR: HAVE FUN!!!
do you have a summer calendar or fun activity you do to help stay organized during the summer? i'd love to hear about it! pour yourself a cuppa and come chat :)
