I am SO excited to be hosting a new series for the summer called Summer Survival for Moms of Boys.
Summer Survival for Moms of Boys
Each week day from June to the middle of August you will find a post from some of my favorite bloggers that will make your summer loads of fun and will help you to break up the routine with fun activities, science experiments, crafts, fun food ideas and more.
I have 4 boys and I know how hard it is to get them interested in activities that don’t involve electronics and after the first few weeks of having them home, it is really easy to run out of ideas for entertainment. Also, it is already an oven outside where we live and with the temperatures rising each day I personally have to have plenty of activities on hand that we can do inside to stay busy or outside to cool off.
I think I’m more excited about this series and the amazing ideas that will be coming in each day than anyone. And while these posts will be geared towards moms of boys, of course girls can enjoy them too. I just have 4 boys so “boy” is all I know.
I have divided the summer weeks into categories that you can view below and everyday I will be adding in a new link that will take you to one of our participating bloggers and their post. The schedule is below and I will update it every weekday throughout the summer.
