So where do you turn when you need some ideas? One word...Pinterest!
I pinned some summer schedules that other moms posted. Like this one from www.thrivinghomeblog.com:
Then I made a list of ideas to put on the schedule. Our Girl was THRILLED with the idea, and she started helping with the plan. However, Our Boy was NOT SO THRILLED with a summer schedule.
Hmmm...so I made a new plan. I created two lists: "Have To" and "Choice." The kids have to do the things listed on the "Have To" list. Then they can choose what they want to do from the "Choice" list.
Here's our "Have To" list:
-brain activities (EX: math games & xtramath.org)
-clean (today was dusting)
Here's our "Choice" list:
Our Boy's Lego Vessel Flying Ship:
Tomorrow I will add *time alone and *make your bed to the "Have To" list.
June wasn't so sure about this new plan because all that planning led to a bath for her!
