Summer-time (or any time off from school) can turn into lazy-time if we aren’t careful (by “we”… I mean the parents). It can be easy for us, as parents, to just let our kids lounge around and hop online or turn on the TV when they are bored, but my husband and I really try to keep a limit on those things. That is where our home rules come into play.
I like this idea for chores, but the blog also shows how she uses "the bucket list" for things that her kids wanted to do over the summer. I LOVE how visible and hands-on this is! I may need to add pictures for my 4 year old until he figures out the colors.
