I’m a big fan of the FRUGAL FAMILY FUN BLOG! Valerie always has plenty of great ideas for children’s activities on a budget. For summer fun I especially liked the watermelon wrapping paper

If you’ve never been you MUST check out SIMPLE KIDS! So many great ideas including this one for creating your own backyard obstacle course.

I just love this idea from THE CRAFTING CHICKS. Fun for the kids and such a lovely keepsake to have! Be sure and browse around the Crafting Chicks website for a minute (or 10) there are SO many wonderful ideas!

I’ve been admiring Andrea’s fabulous ALPHABET SUMMER and I’m really hoping to be able to do this with the kiddos next summer. Doesn’t it sound fabulous! Find all the details and lots of fabulous pictures of her family’s alphabet summer on Andrea’s blog!
