Planning a balanced summer holiday

It's that time of year again.....the end of school countdown!
We have 5 weeks left so I have be reviewing my post from last year to plan a perfect mix of activities, relaxation and a smidge of creative learning for a summer of fun!

If I were to choose one word that sums up what I most hope to achieve this summer it would be:

And to accomplish this I am focusing on these 3 things:

and creativity

To start I have printed a free calendar from The Tomkat Studio and have begun filling in important dates, holidays, birthdays, appointments and pre-booked activities.

This year I have also designed a handy printable checklist so that I remember to look into all of the free activities that we have enjoyed in the past, as well as keep track of any new ideas that we discover.

I will be asking the kids to help me fill in the new ideas section.
I wonder what they will come up with!?

Please feel free to print off a copy of our new checklist and let me know how your summer planning is going.
Five weeks and counting....

P.S.  If the checklist appears out of alignment in GoogleDocs, download the file and open it in a Word type document.  You can then adjust alignment if necessary and then print it.
