I love LISTS! hehe 🙂 So, being that I didn’t ever get around to creating a Spring To-Do List, I knew I wanted to jump on getting our Summer To-Do List up! Nathan is not even quite 4 and when he saw me putting up the Summer To-Do List the other day, he got all excited and asked what activities I was putting on there! He was then able to add ideas of his own to the list too! It’s such a fun tradition for the family! Eighteen25 has some great Summer To-Do Printable choices here, but since I used their design last year, we decided to offer something a little different!
For printing you have the option of printing the single 12×36 or you will need to download and print the Top and Bottom 12×18’s of your color choice. To get the 12×36 printed you have to take your file down to Costco on a jump drive and upload it from the computers there that they have at their counter. You can’t upload the file from your computer. From what I understand, WalMart does not offer 12×36 printing. I haven’t check any other places. If you don’t have a Costco, then just print the two files and piece them together.
Framing: If you go to purchase your frame locally you may only be able to find 11.75×36 frames. It is the more standard frame size. But, you can find 12×36 frames as well. I’ve gone down to our local Michaels on two different trips for frames and one time they had 12×36 frames and the next trip only 11.75×36 frames. If you have 11.75×36 frames then you’ll just need to trim the edges slightly!
Then write your Summer To-Do list on the glass of the frame using a black sharpie (don’t worry, it wipes off easy using some Windex or a Glass cleaner). Then, let your kiddos check them off as your complete all your Summer Fun activities!!
To get you started on your list here are a few Summer Fun Ideas:
Water Balloon Fight
Sand Art Project
Camp in the backyard/sleep on the tramp
Watch a movie outside
Movie Marathon (perfect for bad weather or sick day)
Go through kids clothes and pack or giveaway the clothes that don’t fit anymore
Make a bird feeder
Neighborhood Bike Wash
Go on a Hike
Make a blanket tent
Baking Day w/ Mom
Make Homemade Playdough
Breakfast Party w/ friends or cousins

I hope that list gets your brain going w/ ideas! Feel free to add to it throughout the summer. There are lots of other things will be doing several times in the summer, for example like going to the pool and splash pad. We will also be doing lots of Pre-K Packs, so I have chosen not to add that to my list.
