Summer Fun!

weekly chart and activities list
In the past I’ve had tons of plans for things to do when my kids are out of school but I wasn’t organized enough.  Before I knew it summer was over and we didn’t do half of what we wanted to.  I decided that’s not going to happen again so I created these printables.  The first is a weekly schedule where we can write what we have planned for each day.  The second is a list of activities divided into 5 categories.  I’m offering them as a free printable so I’ve left them blank.  If you need inspiration you can check out the following boards I have on Pinterest:

I have two kids so I typed each on in the banner on top of the weekly chart.  I plan to put both of mine in a frame along with the activity list and use a wet erase marker to write on the glass each week.  I typed my activities in before I printed it and then I can cross each one as we complete it.  Enjoy!

Great keepsake to make for your kids

I did a post on asprinkleofthis.blogspot.com about a baby shower gift. You can view the whole post here. This has been one of my most popular posts. The main reason is the Dr. Seuss keepsake book idea I shared. Basically you sneak the book "Oh, The Places You'll Go" into your child's teacher at the end of each year and ask them to write a small note and sign it. Then you give it to your child at his or her high school graduation. I've had several people ask me for the tag that I created to match so I decided to make it a free printable. Just click on the photo to be take to the download.

Grocery Shopping List

I've been working on getting my kitchen organized. It's taken a really long time but I'm glad to say I'm almost finished. One thing I definitely wanted to do was create a grocery shopping list. I had my list laminated and I use a wet erase marker so I don't have to print multiple copies. I keep it on a clipboard in my pantry. It's also handy for removing select items as I shop at more than one store and I don't generally clear the whole list in one day. This saves me from having to scratch things out or rewrite them. This is for sale in my etsy shop if you're interested.

Healthy Eating Punch Cards

My kids have gotten really picky about their eating lately. They're refusing to try anything new and are begging for a treat after every meal. It was driving me crazy so I created these cards. The first one labeled "Try It, Punch It" is for healthy eating. Whenever they eat something healthy they get one circle punched {or initialed}. When all 10 are filled they get a treat. I'm planning to just stock up on inexpensive dollar store things and other items when I see them on clearance.
The second one is labeled "Earn A Treat". For this one they need to eat 10 healthy foods such as carrots, a salad, broccoli, etc. Once they've received their 10 punches they get a sweet treat.
I'm offering these as a free printable. Please remember that they are for personal use only. If you want to share with others please direct them to this post. There are 8 on each page. The first set are in 4 different colors and the second set are all alike. Just click on each picture to be taken to the download {minus the watermark}
