100 things to do this summer

We don’t do summer camps around here. The beauty of summer is letting go of the school year's strict schedule. However, it’s always good to have a summer road map to help you survive those hot August days.

Here are some fun, (nearly free) ideas to kickstart the heat with your kids:

1. Put big globs of shaving cream on the table, and let your kids sculpt and fingerpaint. (It’ll clean your table, too!)

2. Make tinfoil boats and float them down a creek or pond.

3. Have a picnic in your backyard.

4. Play dress-up. Let the kids dress up in some of your old clothing.

5. Create a literacy library for the summer. Put a price tag on good books for incentives for your kids to read at a more challenging level.

6. Make family T-shirts and conduct your activities like summer camp.
