Printable: Summer of Fun Kit

6.14.2011


I worked on it all last weekend and I am finally finished!
I am thrilled to share with you our family's
SUMMER OF FUN Kit.






- downloaded Summer Fun kit
- laminater (optional)
- dry erase marker (optional)
- tape
- jar or other container
- scissors or paper trimmer
- pen

1. Print all pages.  I printed onto lightweight card stock, but you can print onto regular paper if you want to.
2. Cut out each of the 80 Activity Cards using a paper trimmer or scissors.  The cards are color coded into different categories as follows...


3.Use pen to fill in additional activities already scheduled or that your family enjoys on the blank Activity Cards provided labeled Wild Card.


4. Laminate calendar page. Use dry-erase marker to indicate the week.
5. Decorate jar (or other container).




6. Place cut Activity cards into jar.
7. On Sunday have children take turns drawing cards of different colors out of jar.

8. Use scotch tape to arrange Activity Cards onto your calendar next to the day your family will do that activity.


Don't miss tomorrow's post where I have a Free Printable of a Summer Journal so kids can record their madcap adventures during their Summer of Fun!
