Are your kids out of school yet where you are? Kids get out of school early here in Arizona (because for some reason they have to start school at the BEGINNING of AUGUST). My husband and I both work from home, but we don't want our oldest, Emily, to sit around watching TV or playing games all day.
It can be hard to keep to a schedule for a summer that'll keep your kids engaged. For Emily I decided to come up with a chart. It has a list of things she has to get done before she can sit and watch TV or play a game on her tablet. I'm hoping in conjunction with everything we have planned out of the house as well this will make for a fun and productive summer for her.
I've decided to share this chart with you. I've left the first page blank. The second page has a list of ideas you can use with your kids, or come up with your own! There is also a page of pictures for younger kids who can't read yet. You can attach the pictures to the page and they can remove them as they finish each one. Who doesn't love checking things off their to do list?
I hope this chart can help you with your kids this summer as well!
