Summertime Blues?

This is my first real summer. My daughter finished kindergarten, so was pretty happy to have a break from running around, dropping off, homeworking, meetings, etc. Well, a few weeks ago, I started getting a bit sick of summer. Could be the constant 105-110 degrees, could be the crying, etc, but I was starting to get a little loopy. So, I pulled out all my "fun" cards and we went wild! Summertime blues, no more!

Grow heads in a jar! They draw the faces. Put seeds in and water. Fun for all!
Play do!!!
Tape some paper to the table and let them go crazy. (Outside might be wise!) And PS, don't go inside even for 5 seconds to get a drink or your 3 year old will dump all the green paint out and you will have a very heavy painting.
Have a reading party. I got this from a magazine also. Get a ton o books from the library. Let the kids pick some treats. And READ!!
Turn a movie on outside and all of a sudden, it's a partay!
We found this on a craft video from the library. Cut banana, roll in honey, and graham cracker crumbs. This is yummy!! And a nice tricky way to get your kids to eat healthy!
Go to the play place at the mall, hot dog on a stick, disney store and don't care if your kids and their cousins dance around like crazies in the middle of JC Penney to Britney Spears. In other words, laugh a little!
Make some fudge pops. 2 1/4 cups milk and pudding. I happened to have some oreos left from this project. Crush into 1 cup. Put in handy dandy popsicle makers. (got mine at target in the dollar spot). Freeze. Done and done!
I got this idea out of Family Fun magazine. If you don't have it, you must get it!! Put your kids against a wall. They pose. You spray. Cool results!
