4. Fun Summer Service Ideas from Pennies of Time – Teaching Kids to Serve

Since “being entertained” isn’t the only thing our kids should think about, right?

 5. Summer “Schedule” from Full Plate Living

While summer is a nice  time to relax and enjoy the “non-schedule” time, I still find it helpful to stick to a “routine” of some sort. Here is an example of a basic summer schedule to build on or refer to.   

Those are some of my favorite ideas I found via Pinterest. How about you?

Do you have any tried and true boredom busters?

Be sure to head over to Hallie’s for more fun Five Favorites this week!

  1. Thanks for sharing my sample summer schedule! These are all good ideas…I really like the boredom buster jar. I’ll be adding that to my whine-snuffing arsenal. Summer: so-far, so-good!

    1. Hey Kelly – thanks for stopping by and for sharing your sample summer schedule! I love it’s simplicity. Yes, that boredom buster jar is a great idea. I plan on sending them to “the jar” when they complain about “being bored”. 😉

    1. Thanks, Sheila! Yeah I think I would go crazy – and bring my children with me – if I tried to make us all adhere to a classroom-like schedule. But I am thankful for some routines to give us some direction to the day.
