It’s the first day of summer! We have a long-standing family tradition of letting the kids stay up late (well past dark) on this longest day of the year to catch fireflies, playing tag and whatever else a child might find to do when his parents are not enforcing their usual bedtime rules. Now that they are all past the age of needing to be in bed before 8, our old tradition isn’t as thrilling but the memories are still fun. What summer memories are you making these days? Maybe you’ll find some ideas here in this week’s Encouraging Hearts & Home blog hop.
Last week our most viewed post Best Father Books for Kids from Anne at Learning Table. That’s a great way to make memories!
I’m featuring three posts this week that will help your summer memory-making:
- How to Make a Daddy Daughter Date Book from Jennifer at Celebrating Everyday Life is a wonderful way to record memories.
- These DIY Backyard Game Ideas from Michelle at The Scrappe Blog will give you opportunity for making all sorts of memories together!
- Use these 5 Easy Meals that Kids Can Make from JoAnne at Our Unschooling Journey to get your kids in the kitchen. It’s a great way to make memories and learned useful skills as well!
