    I love these ideas, thanks for sharing them. I’m always looking for ideas for my very active 7 yr old.
    Another good one is outdoor scavenger hunts.

    This is wonderful…this summer will be my first as a SAHM and I cannot wait to spend it with my kiddos. I’ve been mulling over the idea of planning out our days to give us some structure and of course I wanted to add crafts in there somewhere {along with the beach!}. These ideas will definitely help 🙂
