Easy Summer Activity Calendar Ideas
Think of planning your summer in terms of day camp. Theme a week day-by-day and then rotate the schedule as the weeks go by. You don’t need to do all the activities or themes – you can choose just to plan out one activity a week…or one theme a week. Whatever works for you!
Summer Activity Ideas
- Water play (always fun!)
- Arts n’ crafts
Tell me more about summer activities for kids…
When I wrote Boredom Busters (my first book), I was home with two small children. We did a whole lot of water play (kiddie pool, sprinkler, and water stations), Arts n’ crafts and science experiments.
Fast forward to this year, where I have three kids (with big age differences). My older kids are self-entertaining but I still need to coordinate summer activities for my youngest.
So these days, we are making 2 ingredient slime putty and rotating in all of these 25 SUMMER ACTIVITIES TO DO WITH KIDS WHILE YOU ARE SELF-DISTANCING (yes, really).
You’ll see in the two pictures in this post, I’ve brainstormed 5 weeks of Easy Summer Activities which you can use (or build off of for your own Camp Mom or Camp Dad planning).
There is screen time in our daily routine. Don’t go thinking I’m all Martha Stewart and do homemade arts n’ crafts/camp mom/pioneer life here all day every day. Big NOPE.
There are video games and computer time (usually of videos of people playing video games…I don’t even understand the fun of that really).
