We are well into summer and some Moms may be losing their minds and wondering WHAT to do to keep the kids busy and their sanity in tact!

Well, here are a few family fun in the summer ideas to do as a family.

Splash Day: Get the hose out or the sprinklers and let the kids have a blast. You can also let them make soapy water balloons and let them throw them at the car and then WASH it for you! LOL!!

Garden Fun: There are MANY things you can do with this option. You can make fancy stepping stones that the kids can paint and decorate, a peanut butter and nuts bird feeder, herb gardens, plant a tree, the list goes on and on.

Chalk the Walk: Buy some sidewalk chalk and let the kids make a welcome home Dad walk way. Another idea is that you can have them create pretty flowers and designs and then have a family sidewalk art show.

Summer Party: Why not have a summer fun party and let the kids make all the decorations. Children can be involved in the entire process or setting up the party. You can go to the dollar store and get most of what you would need for your summer fun party. Let them choose a theme. You can also use some of the other summer craft ideas for entertainment for your party! You could do the Chalk a Walk and have a art show when the parents come to pick the kids up. You could have a splash time. . . and even throw that sudsy balloons in just for fun. There are SO many ways to make a summer party fun, kid made, and CHEAP! Just use your imagination!

Moms, you will only have your kids for a short season of your life. ENJOY them while you still can. Laugh and have fun. . . get your inner kid out and have some summer fun!
