  1. Last summer my MIL bought bird houses for the kids to put together (with an adult) and then paint. It was a really fun project!

  2. Hmm, no kids yet myself, but my younger cousins will be coming over for a visit in July, they are 6 and 10. I have no toys in the house other than an xbox and a wii and I don't think their parents will appreciate me getting them addicted to video games so early on. So I'm thinking of taking them out to play in the near by parks and playgrounds, and pack some picnic lunches. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. The kids will be kept busy by their parents!! Yeah, since I'm a grandma now I can spoil them for a couple days and send them home. But while I have them we will go to the swimming pool and have picnics with papa while he is on his lunch break at work. They really like seeing where their papa works.

  5. I don't have kids, but I do spend a lot of time with my young cousin over the summer. Last summer she learned how to quilt and this summer we're going to do a quilt together.

  6. Summer project, huh? Paint the living room, install built in bookshelves, replant the front garden, grow as many vegetables as possible, make baby quilts for all my pregnant friends, make a beach blanket & go to the beach, make pillows... oh wait, that's MY list! :)

  24. I don't have any little ones of my own, but one of the best ways my parents kept me busy in the summer was teaching me how to cook and sew. Even though most of my projects never saw completion, I loved it. Eventually my sister and I got good enough to make quilts and dinners for our family.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Summer project? Teach them a craft - and it doesn't matter which one. They will learn a hobby, (hopefully with passion!), can make Christmas presents, could even learn to sell, and will keep them busy...

    ReplyDelete
  26. i don't have kids, but i always enjoyed craft time as a kid. i'd visit with my grandmother at her house, where she would usually be sewing, so I'd go through her stash of scraps and creating fashion masterpieces for my Barbie dolls.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I was a camp counselor and did nothing but arts and crafts one summer. The run-away hit? Pet rocks. They ran around to find the perfect rock, washed and dried them, then spent several quiet, happy hours painting, putting on googly eyes and drawing faces, then coming up with leashes and carrying cases. Too cute!

  32. We are lucky enough to have a pool in our back yard. When my 3 were small, they lived in their swim suits and spent many long summer days in the pool. My sewing area has double garage sized windows/doors looking out at the pool. So while they swam I could both keep an eye on them AND sew! It was great! I still enjoy looking out at the pool while sewing, but sorely miss those kiddos!

  36. keeping kids busy? How about some chalk and a driveway? It worked for me until I was 18 :)
    You can make them look up cool paintings online, print those and then let them take those with them. Playing Van Gogh is quite amazing :)

  48. this summer my 5 year old and I have a mission project. We are making cloths/towels and sending them to the gulf of mexico to help in the aid to cleaning the animals who have been struck down due to the oil leak.
    So far we've picked out our fabrics and today we're learning to use fabric scissors--I'm not sure I'm ready for this but she sure thinks she is! :)

  51. Those Charm packs are adorable! We got a summer membership to our local zoo. So far it has been a huge hit!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I am already a follower of your blog. The kids could make garden stepping stones-handprint and then put colored beads in it too. A great reminder of when they were this age.

    ReplyDelete
  53. My 4 yr old is occupied for hours with a bin of left over craft supplies (pieces of ribbon, pipe cleaners, beads, scraps of yarn, buttons, old christmas cards, etc), scissors, and tape/glue. He will create "projects" for hours! He has his own bins of this kind of stuff in my craft room.

  57. My kids are going to be spending abit of time this summer in the kitchen with me and then swinging hammers with Dad. They'll be going to the home improvement center and picking out new room colours and YES the fabric store to pick out fabrics for their rooms in our new house. Making new friends and hanging out with old ones. Oh and exploring their new town too!
    That oughtta keep em busy, don'tcha

  58. Well, my son is still pretty young for alot of stuff (not quite two yet) but he certainly likes to interfere with mine!! We are replacing our fence this summer, though, so I have been using it to pin up paper and letting him paint outside-- no mess inside :)

  67. we love to water the garden...and then use a bucket of water and old paint brushes and 'paint' the rocks, house, van, eachother...you get the idea!! lovely gifts.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Well, here we have swimming lessons and baseball practice...cramming in visits to the doctors and dentist...and a family vacation. But I think all of those things keep the parents just as busy as the kids. Though I think the daddy is going to work on rocket-building here pretty soon.

  69. My kid is only 17 months right now so every day is like summer for her :) Unfortunately I can't stay home w/ her but our great nanny takes her to the park and library all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  70. One word: SPRINKLER! That, and our new young hens will keep us all cool and happy this summer. Love your blog. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Give them some sidewalk chalk and let them draw their own city in the driveway. Our kids drew a post office, grocery store, houses for each of them, etc. They then spent hours playing in their city. Selling rocks or whatever else they could find in the yard as groceries for leaf-money. When the rain washed it all away they went out and drew it again because they had had such fun!

    ReplyDelete
  72. hyperventilating just a little bit :] your guests sure know how to party! keeping kids busy in the summer... hmmm... how about a playdate where someone else could keep them entertained :]

  73. Today we are making cookies - an old standby and we are experimenting with making popsicles with the old tupperware set. Today - fruit and yogurt, tomorrow chocolate pudding - fun, and refreshing in this heat!! Plus, are you kidding? I follow all these gals already!

  112. Shaving Creme Art is one I enjoy. Take shaving creme (I normally use Barbsol) add drops of different food coloring to it, mix it up. Don't mix too much it will blend together. Then take card stock and smoosh in the shaving creme, lift it up, and take a hard object, or Popsicle stick and rub off the excess shaving creme. Let the cards dry and then mail them to your friends. Each card is pretty and different. I even do this activity with my disabled adults I work with and they love it. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  113. great summer activity: give your kids a bucket of water and sponges. They love to clean the porch and each other!

  114. This summer, I'm going to start teaching the 8 year old girl how to sew (and hopefully get her into swimming lessons) and our two year old has been having a ball getting used to the kiddie pool outside this summer. And maybe take a chance on potty training before the summer is through! (but that might not be much of a FUN activity! haha!)

    ReplyDelete
  115. I cover the patio with easel paper or butcher paper and let my kiddo have at it with paint/crayons/marker, whatever! Then, when he's done, he can run through the sprinkler to clean up!

  133. Get a white pillow case. Have them run around and collect leaves and flowers. Place them inside the pillowcase (With some eye for design) Place a paperbag over the pillowcase and let them pound with a hammer. Just let them get all their energy out.

    It makes an interesting pattern on the pillowcase. Then I let them use sharpie markers to right on it. Iron it then wash it. Hours of fun.
