I’m Bored!

Have you started hearing this yet?

Family Guy Stewie Mom

Roughly half-way through summer and MyChild has apparently forgotten everything she owns and has at her disposal to work with.

I created this:

Some explanation/inspiration:

Do 2 pages of your Summer Math Journal – MyChild’s school sent home a workbook to help prevent the summer slide. In the past, I’ve purchased these.

Do 1 activity in your Summer Reading Journal – Same as the Summer Math Journal, her school sent this one home, too. I’ve used this one in the past.

Read 2 chapters of a book – current favorites include: Owl Diaries, Critter Club, Dogman, and Amulet

Read 3 picture books: Current favorites include: Dragons Love Tacos (1 & 2), I am Rosa Parks, and Duck for President

Complete one day of Bible Study: MyChild has the Write the World Journal for Kids from Cultivate What Matters and the I Will Trust You Art Journal and Kids Read Esther from She Reads Truth

Complete an entry in your Reading Journal: I created a reading journal for MyNiece and MyChild at the beginning of the summer. Printables available here!

Do a choreChores for Hire

Take a play bath – sometimes bubbles, sometimes too many toys to fit the child. Anything to keep her occupied for a bit.
