Summer Fun Ideas

This summer I really want to get involved with my kids.  I looked on Pinterest and found this website with a ton ideas to do with toddlers and kids.  I'm really excited to try these activities.  I'm going to post as we go and let you know how fun they were.  I also put some of my own ideas in the list too.  I decided to make it more fun for my son I would write them on colored popsicle sticks (dollar store) and let him pick one each day (red and yellow ones)!  Today was our first day, and he loved it.  Now, to keep me on track of deep cleaning out the messy spots in my house, those orange sticks are a chore that we also have to do that day.

Here is my list, most are free or cheap, but there are some that will cost a bit of money:
