School is almost out. While teachers are counting down the days, work-from-home and stay-at-home moms alike are wondering what in the world they will do with the kids home 24/7. I have been giving it a lot of thought myself and have decided that creating a summer schedule is a must.
You see, even though my daughter only had preschool three mornings a week, it was still super helpful to be able to count on that time to run errands or tackle things around the house. I was starting to dread the start of summer until my friend Katie of Fun Home Things posted about putting her four kids on a schedule.
Instantly, I knew that a schedule is exactly what we need to help everyone have a better summer. And if you need ideas for how to create your own schedule, check out the ideas below. (Links are below photos.)
Summer Schedule Ideas
You can also incorporate some family routines too, like pizza and a movie on Friday nights or breakfast for dinner on Sundays. Or family outings on Saturdays. Whatever your family would like most.
