Summertime Activities

Today is the first official day of summer and while we have been enjoying warm weather for a few months now it’s always fun to celebrate the “official” first day with special events or activities.  I am a sucker for creating memories and traditions with my kiddos and today I thought I would share some great summertime activities that are sure to bring giggles galore! 

On a hot summer day nothing beats playing in the sprinklers, and this kid’s car wash takes it to the next level.  Easy to make and sure to provide hours of entertainment and fun.

Sink your teeth into sweet and juicy watermelon…put it on a stick for easy eating.
Make a tent in the backyard and have a camping party…don’t forget the s’mores!
Summertime wouldn’t be complete without cute little kids selling refreshing lemonade at their homemade lemonade stand.  

Make your own lemonade stand kits and let your little entrepreneurs do the rest.  (P.S. Stay tuned I have a new version of this coming soon!)
What will you do this first day of summer?  Whatever you decide enjoy celebrating the warmth of the sun and making memories with your kids!

      Glen, I’m not sure how they did that. I haven’t attempted to make the car wash yet, maybe I will this summer! 🙂
