Happy 4th of July! Independence Day can be a time to be grateful and celebrate America’s birthday while reflecting on things we are proud of. Think about the things your family appreciates and values and have you done them yet this summer?
As the kids and parents get a quick break from the school year it’s time to reconnect and enjoy the time you have with your family. Maybe there are traditions in place or maybe it’s time to begin a new summer tradition. Summer can be a time to slow down and get to know your kids again.
Play on their level on the floor or take interest in what they are working on. Let them teach you something and be the expert. When you allow a little leadership and independence your kiddos’ confidence will grow immensely.
Here are a few summer bucket list ideas to get your family started:
Beach or lake Day
Plant flowers or a garden
Go to the zoo
Fly a kite
Have a picnic
Go for a hike
Visit a library
Play in sprinkler or splash pad
Go on a nature treasure hunt
Build a fort
Go to the ice cream shop
Have a dance party
Visit a national park
