Oh, what do you do in the Summertime?

I thought about a fun, upbeat little song from my childhood today as I racked my brain for some ideas to give to my 8-year-old. Summertime here in sunny AZ is oftentimes difficult with young kiddos. You have two choices when considering playing outdoors: swim or melt! :) Actually the young ones handle the heat better than us complaining adults..... :) But I remembered the fun activities mentioned in this little ditty.....


"Oh, what do you do in the summertime when all the world is green?
Do you fish in a stream, or lazily dream on the banks as the clouds go by?
Do you swim in a pool to keep yourself cool, or swing in a tree up high?
Do you march in parades, or drink lemonades, or count all the stars in the sky?
Is that what you do?
So do I.


.....and thought, it's TIME to get our summer list a-going already!!


We haven't done this yet during the summer. I've always wanted to and now my oldest is at the age where list-making and checking-off is kinda fun {or maybe that's just my child}


Anyhow, this is what we've decided to do:



I've been pinning summer activities for months now so I decided to print off some of the lists. We laid them out and each took turns choosing an activity one at a time {We did have quite a few originals too:} I did limit the number to 50 activities because let's be honest, 100+ seemed overwhelming and I'm not breaking out a new extravagant project everyday.





And here is our FINAL FUN list:





So, what do you do in the summertime? Do share :)

Make it a beautiful day!
