Lots and lots of fun Summer time Activities for the Kids--They won't be bored this year!

Site: This mom helps the kids look forward to summer by giving them a bucket of fun. She fills a beach pail with art supplies, sidewalk chalk, books, a DVD, and a gift card to a local ice-cream store. She also includes homemade coupons for lunch with Dad, biking to the pool, a kid-planned dinner, a trip to the library, and other special (and usually free) activities. The coupons are for things the kids would want to do anyway but writing them on coupons lets the kids be part of the planning.
