The Best Thing about Summer Break + 8 Great Summer Fun Ideas

The school year is over for the year. Moms and dads across the country are rejoicing!

I surveyed my readers to see what they like most about summer holidays. Here’s what they came up with.

1. NOT getting up super early and rushing out the door by 8am.

2. NO more lunches to pack!

3. NO more forms to fill out for school field trips, hot lunch and more.

4. NO more school friendship drama.

5. NO more homework or projects to complete.

Now, what are we to do with our kids for almost 10 weeks? Most parents work during the summer and send off their kids to camps or hire a babysitter. Others (like me) are home with their kids all summer.

Here are a few great things to do with your kids to keep them busy, happy and entertained this summer!
