One thing we like to do in the summer is make summer passports. It's a neat way for the kids to keep track of what they're doing and to also jumpstart activities for them when they say, "We're bored!"
Here's how we do it.
We start by folding cardstock in half and labeling each cover with our names. This year I used some label printables and added text.
From there we add pages with spots to write in pre-determined activites.
It's really fun to hear what the kid's would like to accomplish during the summer. Swimming, visiting Grandma and Grandpa, going to the library and going for bike rides are top contenders every year!
After our pages are stapled in and labelled we decorate our cover. This year I printed off some sun clipart and asked each child to color it in.
Once they were done I cut out the sun, adhered it to orange cardstock and stitched it on the cover.
As the kids complete activities they add stickers to the appropriate pages. It's quite fun to look at the passports in fall and see what we did all summer!
So, there you have it! Are you keeping track of what you're doing this summer?
