Aaaah, summer, where art thou?
I don’t know about you, but summer has been a big tease around here: a few days of hot weather, and then… no more. But still a hint of sun now and then, to give you the hope that you might actually get to go to the pool, or have a picnic, or do some of the other summery things that would make it easier to keep the girls entertained during the school break. Nope.
So I turned to Pinterest to find little things to do together each day that might work for both Sarah and Stella – no small feat, since their tastes vary greatly because of the age difference. But the almighty Pinterest never fails me; and thank goodness, because I can sure use some variety – there’s only so much Just Dance and Design Studio I can play.
Here are a few things we added to our summer to-do list:
Cute manicures, ’cause that’s part of the fun in having girls… and being one
Some baking, ’cause we have a sweet tooth (and the girls love presenting dad with freshly baked goods):
Popsicles and frozen goodies, ’cause DUH, it’s summer!
And some simple DIY, fun enough for the girls but easy enough for their craft-impaired mom (’cause as much as I’d love to make stuff like this, just looking at it makes my head hurt):
Now all I need is shop for the supplies, and I have some rainy day fun on hand!
If you have kids, how are you keeping them occupied/entertained this summer?
Also, anyone have an in with the weather gods? We could use some actual summer weather in these parts!
