100 Activities for Summer

Pin It
 With 4 active boys life can get pretty crazy! Then summer comes. Now, don't get me wrong...I have been looking forward to summer. No more chasing boys to and from school and various activities. For us, summer is family time. It's a time to go on hikes and trips; to have water fights and read a great book in the warm sunshine. BUT...I don't want to have it be a totally unproductive time. I like the boys to retain some of what they learned through the school year and to explore new things. I want them to have something to write about when the teacher gives the "what I did this summer" assignment. So this year I made a list.
(I actually made most of the list during church hehehe) Each of the boys, dad included, added to it. Now, I don't know if we will get to all 100 things but it will be fun all along the way.
 Some things are simple, maybe something we would do anyway, but this will be a way of tracking all the fun summer brings. I just wrote them out on regular poster board. Nothing fancy. I want the boys to look forward to crossing each one off. Wanna know what we included on our list?
