Vacation Bible School. Swimming lessons. Diabetes Camp. For the entire month of June, we have only ONE free day.
All the activities are great, but truthfully June is so busy that "fun" isn't how I would describe it. "Hectic" might be a better word, but "hectic" isn't the kind of summer I long for.
Focused FunThis year, I just want to enjoy time together, so we made a list of fun things to do. Each week we pick an idea and get busy!
Here's our list:
Invent a board game
Eat ice cream once a month
Candy Kiss Memory Game *
Tissue Box Monster*
Make a new recipe
Krispy Kreme for breakfast!
Make a bird feeder*
Surprise Dad at work for dinner
Make Monster Bookmarks*
Make a soap cloud*
Adventure bike ride
(Those with an asterisk are from Pinterest. If you click over, most of them are on the Matthew board.)
One of the best things we've done so far is visit a local mosaic shop to get crafty. Look at this great sword that Matthew made!
|Great sword, but he doesn't look very fierce with that big smile!|
|Kevin made a sunset!|
|And I made a gecko!|
It was a great way to spend Kevin's birthday and we created some fun memories.
