Summer Activity Prep


I am in the process of preparing my Summer Activity Stash this week. Thursday is my boys' last day of school (Whoo, hooo!) and I hate it when I have to run out to the store to execute a project when the "I'm Bored's" hit.

I like to collect all my project ideas and shop for everything at once and keep the supplies handy in a tote to grab whenever I need them. I'll be sharing projects as I go along this summer, but if you want to gather the same supplies so you are ready I'll pass on the shopping list I've compiled so far:

Diet Coke
Mentos
Sand
Plaster of Paris (2 bags)
shells
stones
feathers
string
yarn
flour
cornstarch
glitter
balloons
old CD's
dish soap lids
super glue
sun print paper (Oriental Trading Co.)
plastic garbage bags
contact paper
squirt bottles
acrylic paint
tempera paint
straws
card stock paper
long, thin wooden dowels
disposable cups and spoons
toilet paper rolls
bottle caps
empty water and soda bottles (I usually say "pop"!)
elastic beading cord
permanent markers
glycerin
food coloring
glue
cream of tartar
shallow cardboard boxes and misc. cardboard
small wood scraps


Happy almost summer break!

  5. When my kids were little I used to do a lot of that planning and prep, too. It was fun to run summer like a mini craft and field trip camp. Now the boys are older and our days a little more ad hoc. Love that photo, btw, I felt the same way on the last day of school myself!

  6. Looking forward to some great tutorials :) My list for today is popsicles and water balloons. There are about 12 kids who get on the bus at our stop and us parents always bombard the kids with water guns and balloons when the step off for the last time... that would be tomorrow as well :)
