Summertime Cube and Activities {free printable} + Summer Camp Link Party

 

Oh Summer, how I love you! I don’t know about you, but my least favorite words are “I’m bored”. Living in Las Vegas where the temps are already well into the 100′s, my kids and I  have to find a lot to do INSIDE.

This summer I hope you hear a lot less “I’m bored’s” and find some fun excitement with my Summertime Cube and Activities:

I know you won’t need this everyday, but when you need a little summer pick me up, simply roll the dice and pick an activity under that number on the activities page!

The dice is super simple to make. Simply download and cut out the template. score along the lines. Fold and glue (I used hot glue) and you have a perfect little cube!

With activities from making cold treats, to swimming, having a bubble gum blowing competition and having a tea party, I hope this summer you create some happy memories with your kids…I know mine are looking forward to using this. :)

Summer Road Games {free download}

Last year, I debuted this free road game set for kids, but it was for newsletter subscribers only….so today it is for all of you!  It is tried and tested and a proven fun game set for kids while on the road this summer.

This pack of games consists of 6 printables.

CAR BINGO.

This is very self explanatory. When your kidlet finds one of the pictures they can add a sticker, candy, mark over it, etc. and when they get a blackout, have a special treat/toy just for them.

I SPY LICENSE PLATES.

I love this idea..especially for older kids. Simply print a few of these out and let them watch the cars pass. They can draw out the license plate and color it in. Make it rewarding by having a surprise when they hit milestones (10 states, 20 states, etc)

I will print out what the license plates look like for them from HERE.

I found this super cute map of the U.S. from Mr. Printables that I will give them with the license plates so they can color and see where that car came from!

TIC TAC TOE

A fun game to play with pairs.

TRAVEL STORIES

A fun way for kids to record their adventures in the car, camping and there is even a blank one that they can draw and fill in as they please. There are 3 designs of these.

This download was once for newsletter subscribers, but is now for everyone! You can find the free games HERE!

Remember, if you take the files just be sure to like my facebook page or follow me on pinterest!

 

Have a happy summer on the road.:)

 

Summer Sewing Cards {free printable}

 I LOVE summer, but I also love to have lots of activities for my kids to do to keep them busy. My 6 year old has been begging me to teach him how to sew and my 4 year old loves to do whatever activity I am doing, so I thought this would be a perfect time to teach each of them to sew and get comfortable with a needle in their hand, and thus designed some sweet summer sewing cards that will do just the trick!


These sewing cards are super easy to put together and get them sewing in no time!

To put the cards together you will need:

-THESE downloads.

-self laminating sheets

-hole punch

-yarn

-plastic kids needle, a dull ended big needle (I found mine at Wal-Mart) or tape

1-Print out the downloads and cut them out around the black outside line

2-Using your self laminating sheets, laminate the cards. You can even do this at any print shop for super cheap.

3- Cut out laminated cards. Hole punch every inch or so in the white areas all around the designs.

4-Cut yarn and tie a knot at the bottom of each card.

5-You can either thread the yarn in a needle and get them going, or if you don’t have one around, tape the end of the yarn and it is ready to go!

Sit with them and let them go at it. Teach them how to do some different stitches..or simply let them go at it.


It took my daughter a few minutes to get the hang of it, but she was determined…and did amazing!

It took her a good 20 minutes to get it done. She really enjoyed herself…

and I think was pretty darn proud of herself.

So go ahead and go grab these sweet little cards HERE…

and enjoy summer break with your kids!

What are YOU going to teach your kids this summer?
