Welcome to Week 4 of the Summer Fun series! We are half-way through the series of 8 weeks! Thanks for joining in and a big thank you to those who have put a button on their blog or in their summer fun posts!
If you missed the first three weeks, you can catch up here: Week 1 Week 2 Week 3
Monday: Picnic Lunch
Pretty self-explanatory, eh? You can go in your backyard, on your living room floor, or to a park. Buy some fast food, or pack an actual basket with PBJ, pretzel
s, apples, and juice boxes.
Tuesday: Visit your grandma
You can visit your parents or your grandparents. My grandparents are all 70+ and love to get visitors. We don't do if often enough though! If you don't have your family nearby or available, visit someone else's grandparents! An older neighbor, a retirement home, etc.
Wednesday: Cooking with Kids
Try out a new recipe today. Who knows, maybe the formerly picky little people will decide they LIKE asparagus? Or perhaps you try a new kind of cookie. Involve the kids in measuring, mixing, and of course, clean up!
Thursday: Outdoor Olympics
Hold an Outdoor Olympics with your kids. You can create your own ideas according to your children's ages, but here are some ideas:
--20 foot dash
--spin in a circle 4 times and then run to the end of the driveway and back
--who can carry a cotton ball on a spoon the furthest without dropping it
--how many times can you and your partner throw a wet sponge back and forth without dropping it? 20? 40? 100?!
--3 legged races
--sack races (use pillowcases)
Friday: Lunch with the letter P
Brainstorm with your kids what you can have for lunch that starts with a P. Try to make the whole meal all "P" foods. (Hint, if you are stumped, here are what I've come up with: peas, pears, prunes, plums, peanut butter, pasta, pulled pork, penne pasta, pickles, pink grapefruit, pretzels, popcorn, peanuts, Pringles, pudding, popsicles, pork patty sandwiches)
