A fun Summer kids printable game! This Summer Word Scramble is perfect for an afternoon activity during a hot or rainy day!
Hey friends! Spring sports really put a kink in my dinner routine… we had way too much takeout or quick thrown together meals! But, this summer I’m getting back to meal planning and trying to make sure our meals our better balanced. That means back to trying to get my kids to eat and try new vegetables! Problem is that 2 of my 3 kids tend to fight me on the “new” vegetables! In the past we’ve really only had a few vegetables on a regular basis – corn and asparagus. When I would make something different the kids would automatically swear to me that they HATED it! It made me so sad that the other 75%+ of vegetables my kids truly believed they didn’t like them. I knew it was my fault for not having them try more younger! So, I came up with the idea of making a Kids Vegetable Checklist!
With the checklist, my kids can mark off as they try different vegetables! This will be especially fun, because I’m growing quite a few new things in my garden this year! But even the ones that I’m not growing, the kids think it’s pretty fun to go to the store and pick something off the list! My 4 and 7 year old are LOVING this! My almost 9 year old is sort of playing along. haha!
Here is a list of the vegetables that I’ve included on it:
- Brussels Sprouts
- Green Beans
- Sweet Potato
I am aware that there are other vegetables, but I just chose the ones that are the most popular and can easily be found at any grocery store. So, there are 24 vegetables in total on the list! I did create a 2nd version of the printable, that includes an area at the bottom where you can write other vegetables in if you’d like.
I hope you that this can help your family expand their taste buds too! If you liked this printable, make sure and check out a few others that our family loves!
I would love to say that my kids have escaped the entitled attitude that seems to permeate the world, but they haven’t. They want to be able to buy Legos all the time and when we go to Legoland they expect that they can but at least one souvenir. That’s an expensive habit to keep up and honestly I don’t like that going to Legoland and the experience doesn’t seem to be enough. I’ve decided that its time to stop the madness!
So I created Lego money. It is redeemable for anything Lego. They can use it to purchase Legos or anything at Legoland – including the fair type of games that I am tired of saying no to. I printed up a bunch and laminated it so they can ask to do extra chores like baseboards, blinds, washing cabinets, etc. Anything that is a not normal chore around the house to earn Lego money. Then on our next trip to Legoland the only money that will be spent is money they have earned.
I made three money options:
I felt like I needed more ones so that is why there is a sheet of ones only. I am excited and feel a little more empowered to handle the “I wants” next time we head to Legoland or when they beg me for a new set. This money can be used for so many things! Hope you enjoy it. It is for personal use only.
