It’s about time I got my act together and came up with a real schedule for me and the kids. I figured summer is the perfect time to start that! I could have broken the schedule down to an hourly break down. But who am I kidding, that would just be a set up for disaster. It would never work. I turned to, where else but, Pinterest to help me out!
I found this amazing daily schedule from Somewhat Simple and decided to create my own.

Now that I have the days categorized it’s time to find the activities to go with them! You didn’t think I would just share the schedule and that was it, did you? Below are just some of the activities that I am planning this summer.
Make Something Monday
Get Outside Tuesday: Sure we could just go out and play in the sand and water table but here are some outside activities for kids.
2. Backyard Toy Car Wash – This genius idea comes from No Time for Flashcards. Not only do the kids get to have fun with their toys and water. But their toys get a good cleaning that they probably desperately need.
What’s Cooking Wednesday
1. Dixie Cup Popsicles – Popsicles are a summer time staple. Why not make your own? Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom shared how to make easy dixie cup popsicles so that you freezer is always stocked this summer!
3. S’Mores – You know we love our S’mores!
Time to Read Thursday: Thursday is story time at our local library. We used to visit the library weekly but then life got hectic. This will help us get back into the routine of visiting. Bonus? The library is about 3 blocks from the house so we can walk there!
Go Somewhere Fun Friday: On not-so-hot days, we will visit the zoo and some local arboretums and farms. When we need to beat the heat, we will go to the aquarium, the Natural History Museum, kid’s museum, and science center.
What’s on your schedule this summer?
