Summer NO TV Post..current edition


This is a repost from June 2012


So...what do you do when its summer,  triple digits outside and the kids are going stir crazy?

I've found these books invaluable when weather (or dinner) keeps the kids indoor.













This one is out of print but you can borrow it with ILL.



The best thing I learned from these books was to have a busy can where you list on 3 x 5 cards things your kids can do without supervision so you can get something done and not turn on the TV babysitter.  You can even let the kids decorate the can so they can have ownership of it.  The other idea that I thought was great was a traveling bag that has things your kids can do in the car.

Go check these books out...you won't be sorry :)

and when all else fails...Pintrest!  Look up summer fun and tada!  instant stuff to do.
