Keep Your Cool

For Our Relief Society in June we had a fun Summer Activity
We had the activity in my backyard and I decorated it super fun and summer-y with lights and everything :)
I even created this fun summer banner to decorate with
The presidency divided up topics to teach
President - Summer Reading
1st Councelor - Summer Service
and me.... Summer Activities
I came up with different ideas to help accomplish fun things with your kids. I found some ideas online and others out of my little brain
This one is paper bags for each day of the put slips of paper inside with a different activity to do each day.
This is just a poster with a list of 50 things to do this summer
This cool display has the activities written on the popcicle sticks.  The kids pick a popcicle each day to choose the activity
These jars are full of activitiy ideas for each catagory.  Just pick one whenever you need to bust bordom at home
I found this fun puzzle at the Dollar store and on the back of each piece I wrote a different activity.
The kids choose the piece and put the puzzle together as they go
Spin the wheel to decide what fun activity to do today
We had little handouts for everyone like homemade Kool-aid Playdough and they made monster corner bookmarks and a Secret Summer Service door hanger with the assignment to do service this summer and pass along the door hanger.
The treats were, of course summer-ish too....
Strawberry Coconut Colada cupcakes
And Creamcicle cupcakes - with a cream cheese filling...yummy!
The night was full of ideas and information and of course fun!
