So school has just started again and it seems all the parents are a bit taken aback by how fast the summer went by! Even those without kids can feel the change and feel so bewildered at how the season just changed so fast. It may still be warm outside, but gone are the beach days and lazy summer cookouts from the lack of organized activities for kids. Here is a list of 40 Fall Activities for Kids that you can use as your own autumn bucket list for after-school and weekend fun this season!…
Activities for Kids
I’ve mentioned before that I am not a huge fan of summer. I just don’t like the heat. But growing up, summers were my most favorite time. What kid doesn’t like summer when there are so many activities for kids to do then? A chance to play round the clock, when the day mixes into night and suddenly the fireflies are blinking around you and the smell of sunscreen has long since faded away. I can remember spending my days at the lake, where I could see my feet under the water, so clear and pure. Walking with the silky sand under my feet, until I could no longer stand, the water enveloping me like an air-conditioned blanket. So much time was spent at the lake – I went swimming, lay on the floating dock, took out the rowboat with my best friend, attempting to row out to the island every summer but never quite making it. I think one year we did make it halfway, food and supplies in hand, but lost interest halfway there….
So I’m a little late for May the Fourth Day but these Star Wars crafts are good all year long and will definitely have a place in my ! For all the Star Wars fans out there, everyday is a day to celebrate your favorite fandom, from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. I don’t know how you celebrated May the Fourth, but one thing I did with my family is watch “The Force Awakens” after dinner. …
My youngest child’s birthday always marks the beginning of summer. We’ve been working on our bucket list for summer activities for kids and this year we really have some fun things planned! But it gets so confusing and my kids always want to know WHEN we are doing WHAT, so having this free printable calendar 2016 helps them visualize the time-frame for our activities.
With the changing season comes a change in your kids’ schedule. No longer in school for months at a time, summer offers a break from classes, tests, and extracurricular activities and offers them a chance to have some fun.
