Five Fun Ideas to create some great Summer Memories

Summer is the time for memory making.  More relaxed schedules allow for the extra time to do fun things with your kids.  For five really fun ideas, check out these great activities linked up to our Summer Fun party!  They're all pretty simple to do and free or inexpensive, but they're sure to bring smiles to your kids' faces and create memories that will last a long time.





Get ready to create some fun memories.  (Click on each picture or title to get all the directions and details)



{Go Kid Yourself}

Tell me your kid wouldn't love jumping 
on this giant water-filled mat?
You can make it using some inexpensive plastic sheeting 
and duct tape and then let the kids go to town 
jumping and playing on it.


{Creative Family Moments}

I LOVE this idea (and it doesn't cost anything extra!).
Have a whole day when you do everything backwards ~
starting with a bedtime snack when you wake up
and ending with breakfast before bedtime.
Definitely check out Heather's creative ideas for 
"backwards" things to do throughout the day!


{Growing a Jeweled Rose}

 Sometimes you just have to get out the old clothes
and let the kids get dirty.
Make a whole playdate out of it and you're sure 
to create some fun memories.
Crystal let the kids do all sorts of fun mud-related activities
(and even served "dirt" as a snack! ;)  )



{East Coast Mommy}

If you can get your hands on a projector,
all you need is a plain white sheet 
for an outdoor movie screen.
Check out the post for Gina's tips 
for a successful (and memorable) movie evening!

{KC Edventures}

You've probably been to the playground 
a few times this summer,
but why not make it especially memorable 
by turning it into a scavenger hunt?
Head to a few different parks and see if you can find 
different kinds of slides, swings, etc.
There's even a printable in the post 
so you can check them off as you find them.



What do you think?  Pretty cool ideas, aren't they?
I can't wait to try some of them with my kids before they head back to school.   (They'd definitely have the best journal entries for the "What I did this summer" writing assignments!)
Definitely visit the sites featured above and also

250 other awesome summer ideas.
