Summer Must Haves

School’s out and kids are looking forward to lazy days, action packed-adventures, summer sports, water play and exploration.  Mom in the Know has some tips on making this summer a fun one.  Make sure that you have this year’s must haves ready before the last school bell rings. 

Start with a bucket list

Work together to make a family summer bucket list using materials you have readily available at home.  It can be as simple as a pad and paper.  You could also use sand pails, clothes pins, popsicle sticks or jars and paper.  Post it notes also work well for this.  Leave the bucket in a place where everyone can see it and add to it as they please.

Make Active Easy

Make sure your kids stay active this summer by keeping outdoor sports and fun equipment close at hand.  I leave all of the essentials just outside my door in a big basket.  You could include
