One thing that we are thinking of doing this summer is to dedicate some time to improve my little one writing skills, maybe one week dedicated to have fun writing…
Water Balloon fights. Usually the cousins divide into teams, led by the 14 and 11 year old boys.
Outdoor movies. On a clear night, move the tv outside and set up a movie night on the lawn.
Cheap Movies at the Theater - our movie theaters do a $2 kids movie weekly during the day. It’s not a new release, but it’s free air conditioning and a treat to get out of the house!
Ice Sledding Around here, the kids get huge blocks of ice and go ‘sledding’ down hills until the ice melts.
Ice sledding! How fun! I never heard of it.
Woah!! Ice sledding in Summer!!! Sounds like a definite tradition!!
