60 days of summer

60 Days of Summer Fun is your simple solution to, “Mom, I’m bored!” With 60 easy ideas, games, and printables, fun is at your fingertips. By the end of the summer, your kids are going to think you’re the most creative mom on the block! Before you get overwhelmed, no, you don’t have to do something every day in order for summer to be a win by back-to-school time. You can skip around for the summer fun you feel like each day.

There are activities for days you feel like getting some sun or playing in the water. We’ve got creative ways to start conversations and foster learning. And of course, because some of the best plans get canceled by mother nature, there are some great indoor activities, too. We’ve even thrown in ideas for road trips! We promise that by the end of summer, your family will have made some great memories and grown in love for one another!
