“How’s your summer?” a mom asked me as we were picking up our kids from Vacation Bible School yesterday. I responded and then reciprocated the question. Her half smile and eye roll told the story before her words did. You know the one. The kids are bored, they’re starting to drive mom crazy. A solution is needed.
So today we’re going to focus on summer fun and boredom busters so both you and your kids can have an awesome summer together! I hope you enjoying reading and keeping busy with all the great ideas linked up below!

Summer reading programs are a great way to keep your school-age children reading and learning, and help your youngest ones grow their love for books! Plus, the kids get rewarded! How cool is that? I still with great fondness, remember being involved in our library’s summer reading program every year and was super excited to get to experience the same thing with my boys! It’s not too late to get your kids signed up so make sure to check out this great resource from The Jenny Evolution!
