Summer Fun List for “The Not so Crafty Mom”

I keep seeing all these great Summer Fun Listsfloating around and they are pretty awesome.  Here is the problem I am having with some of them: they are for older kids, they cost a fortune, you must have an engineering degree to make it work, or they would take me all day to set up and 5 seconds for my kids to break.  So I decided to put together a list for the Not so Crafty Moms, like me.  We are all on a budget, we are all busy, and we all want our kids to have a great summer…

Summer Fun List

  1. Make Bird feeders
  2. Moon Dough
  3. Turn on the sprinkler
  4. Sidewalk chalk
  5. Visit the library
  6. Visit a park
  7. Make treats for local fire fighters or police officers
  8. Have a picnic
  9. Hair gel writing
  10. Buy a bag of 25 balloons and blow them all up (my kids will play with them for days.)
  11. Bubbles and other bubble stuff
  12. Have ice cream for dinner
  13. Spray water paint ( clean spray bottles filled with water and let them spray sidewalks)
  14. ICE this, thi s, or Mixed food coloring with water and freeze in ice cube trays use for water table, bath tub, pool, or painting.
  15. Toy wash, let them clean all the outdoor toys with water and sponges

I plan to do 2-3 of these a week and add more as I go, but it’s a good starting point.

Do you have a summer fun list?  Please share!
