Summer Fun Ideas

For Kids: Give them a collection of items from the recycling bin, a pair of scissors and a roll of tape (or glue). Then give them the freedom to make whatever they want. Some of my favorite items: empty box, toilet paper roll, paper towel roll, newspapers, old cards, slick paper from junk mail, egg cartons, plastic bottle caps. 

For the adventuresome: Go to a tire repair shop and buy a truck or wagon tire tube. Find a nice gentle creak and float down the creek. 

For the outgoing: Think of someone or a a group of someones who you have admired and invite them over for tea. Invite them to bring a sweet treat to share and the recipe. Send everyone home with copies of the recipe.

For the bargain hunter: Find a Family Video or go to the library and rent free kids movies. Then take the time to sit and watch them.

For the person with a servant's heart: Contact your local 4-H office and ask them where they need your help at the 4-H Show and volunteer. If you aren't sure who to call in your area, send me a comment and I'll either recruit you for myself or track down the office in your area.

Happy Tuesday
