Every year I look forward to the end of the school year because our normally busy weekdays become immediately more relaxed. I love letting the kids stay up a little later to take advantage of the extra daylight and to make the most of the time we have together after my husband’s work day.

Yet, even though we all look forward to having fewer demands on our time during the summer, inevitably, we find ourselves missing the routine and flurry of activities a couple of weeks into summer vacation.

In preparation for this year’s inevitable, “we’re bored” mantra that I expect to hear sometime in late June, I’ve prepared a summer family fun kit. This printable pack is full of ideas for what to do in summer so we don’t find ourselves twiddling our thumbs (or driving each other nuts) by mid-July.

What Is In the Summer Family Fun Kit?

I have several go-to family activities and I included several of them in this summer family fun kit. For example, I love scavenger hunts! So, one of the activities included in the kit is a scavenger hunt.

Also included in the summer family fun kit is an idea sheet with 35 fun things to do in summer. When you get stumped, this idea sheet is certain to have an idea you can use.

The kit also has a printable sheet you can hang up to remind kids what to do when they are bored. I plan on sending the kids to check this sheet BEFORE they complain to me about having nothing to do.

Every summer I vow to keep a closer eye on my kids’ screen time so they don’t spend the entire summer vegging out in front of the TV. This year I hope to really stick to that plan by posting screen time rules. On the sheet, I’ll list chores and activities the kids can do to earn screen time each day.

Family movie night is another favorite activity in our home. Inside the summer family fun kit, you’ll find a list of over 30 wonderful family movies.

At the start of summer, I always have lofty goals related to what we’ll accomplish and do over the break. This year I’m using summer activity “badges” that we’ll earn so that we check off some of my most important summer bucket list items.
