20 Ideas for Summer Family Fun


The summer is coming to an end, not for my boys but for me too. I’m going back to school, to teach. Just part time at a little Montessori School near where I live. It’s a perfect fit for me and my family, exactly what we I needed. I’m excited for this new beginning which will still give me plenty of time to focus on my baby…O’Boy! Organic. So don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere!

Knowing that our free time is coming to an end, made me think about how I could cherish these last few days of our summer and not stress about all the things we need to get done. Because, we all know they WILL get done…one way or another. I’ve come up with a list of all things I want to do with my boys these last few weeks, hoping it inspires you to slow down and enjoy this last bit of summer with your kids.

20 Ways to Enjoy the Last Bit of Summer with Your Kids

  1. Read a chapter book together
  2. Sleep In
  3. Snuggle as much as we can
  4. Game Night
