Summer Camp, But Why Mommy Style

Who knew that going to the park could get boring? That playing on the playground could become a chore? Who knew that running and jumping could tire you out?

Its summer. (Well technically not summer and it sure doesn't feel like summer here) We are already on our summer schedule activities, gymnastics, play dates, park visits and trips to the zoo. I didn't schedule too much because she's only 3 1/2 and if I'm being honest, I kinda forgot to sign up for some things.

But we've been doing these for a while now and it seems kind of boring. So I'm looking for other activities to break up the routine. I thought even if she's not going to camp, we could have our own camp.

On the schedule are

Nature walks

Map reading

Arts and Crafts

Gardening and landscaping (plus less work for me)*

Trips to the beach*

And most importantly, swimming*

*Note these are pictures from last summer because we haven't actually done this stuff yet.

My sister did this once for spring break, and they had an awesome time. Much more fun than any camp would have been.

Bunny's birdhouse looks adorable, you have a budding artist in your midst. I wish I would have had that kind of camp when I was little....sounds like lots of fun

Wonderful. Between all of that and the triathlon training, your summer will fly by.

I was really impressed by all of this activity already (including the beach!) until I got to the end. That made me laugh. I love the pictures.
