Hi there. Are you ready for summer? We still have 3 weeks of school left here. Which means I have 3 more weeks to come up with a game plan to keep my kids from fighting all summer long. Luckily, I’ve discovered some great resources that I think are going to be super helpful. If you’re looking for ways to not only survive summer, but to make it an irresistibly amazing one, check out these 9 summer printables that will help you create a summer your family won’t soon forget!
KEEP THE KIDS FROM FIGHTING AND CREATE SOME AWESOME MEMORIES THIS SUMMER
If the thought of all your kids all together ALL SUMMER LONG makes you a little nervous, I get it. My boys have kicked their sibling rivalry into high gear lately and the idea of being with all of them all of the time for 8 weeks makes my eye twitch a little. While I’m a firm believer that kids shouldn’t be entertained all of the time, I also know from experience that bored kids are bickering kids. In order to keep the peace – and my sanity – I plan to have a few activities that I can turn to when things get a little too crazy.
These summer printables are perfect because they mean less work for me. Sure, I could design similar ones myself, but time is worth something to me. When all I have to do is print them out, some minor prep work and they are ready and waiting for when I need them most, I am willing to spend a few dollars. These are all printables offered by The Dating Divas so you know the quality is awesome, the designs are gorgeous and I love that I can save them on my computer and use them again and again.
