Get you and the family ready for summer!


With Summer just around the corner, it is time to get ready!

Above is our "want to" list. We made this while we were camping. It is more simple than the one we did from eighteen25 last summer. We have been short on time! lol
 There is also a "Bored" can and "Take 10" can.

We do "10 minute clean ups" where I set a timer for 10 minutes and we call clean up as quick as we can to knock out the house work so that we can go do fun things! Here are the quick chores that the kids draw from the can.

The bored jar is an idea I got from the idea room a while back. Here are some ideas for the kids to draw from when they are "bored". :) 


The last project I do to get ready for summer is make a list of things I would like to try and get done before school begins again. I dont have much this year because I havent been working but here it is!

Love the idea of "Take 10." Definitely sounds like something we should incorporate in our routine. Thanks for participating in the Summer Fun Fest:o)

This is such a wonderful idea! I live the jar idea as well. I am linking up to this post on my blog...it's a little thing I do called Family Fun Fridays. Check it out of you would like. My family made our own Summer Want To List, and we had a blast. Thanks for sharing your ideas. If you don't mind, I'd like to use your bored jar idea next week. Love your blog!
