Summer is almost here...

and with summer comes bored kiddos at my house.  My kids love the last day of school and can't wait to have extra time doing NOTHIN', but after one day of that, they are bored, and I hear about it.  There are some great summer ideas to be found out there, and I am going to do my best to keep the whining at bay during our lazy summer days.

I did some blog surfing, and found some great summer ideas.  First up, love this list from the talented Meg Duerksen.  Check out her blog for lots of fun summer craft ideas.

I found this cool art website through Meg's blog called Deep Space Sparkle, and it has daily art lessons.  I am going to do one a week with my kiddos this summer.

The oh so talented Emily Anderson is doing a theme a week with her fabu family.  Check out her blog for ideas as well.

I am also planning to do summer jounals with the kiddos.  Be on the lookout for my journals using the July kit from Mosh Posh.  There are tons of journaling tips and ideas out there on the web.

Do you have any summer tips for keeping kids happy?  Please share...pretty please. :)

Amy, love those links! I'm going to be checking them regularly.

Over here, we are also going to be doing a journal. A writing/reading journal and an art journal. Each week, we are going to try a new art medium/technique or a craft (that's when my degree in art education comes in handy). Also, a friend started a mail art exchange for the kids (an assignment every two weeks). Other than that, lots of drawing/reading/goofing off/cooking/trips.
