The One with the Kids Summer Activities - Link Party

Everyone wants to make the most out of their summer.  So this year, let's prepare ahead of time.
Let's start filling up our Summer To Do List.
Link up and share some fun and educational activities for your little ones.  Also, check out the other links for some new ideas!!

On May 19th we will post a list of all the activities everyone has shared! When you link up your post it will be visible in this space, and on all the other blogs who will be sharing in hosting.  So let us join together and share some ideas and inspiration!


The summer activity that I want to share with you is Backyard Camping! It is so easy and so fun to set up camp in your own backyard.  We have a small tent for the kids and they have their own little sleeping bags.  They grab a pillow off of their bed and they are all set.  

It is so much fun to hang out in the backyard and a tent is just the thing to make it a little more special. 

They also love to make s'mores! Yum!! We have a fire pit in our backyard and we love it.  Before we bought that we just used our charcoal grill to make s'mores.  

Since my kids are still pretty young...we can set the tent out early and by 10 they are ready to go upstairs to their own beds, but they still feel like they went "camping."

This is an easy and cheap family summer activity!

Don't their faces say FUN?


This party is being hosted by me here at Mrs. Coach Sims, Keri at Living in This Season, Elizabeth at All Kinds of Things,  Britt at The Fisk Files, Becky at BYBMG, Sarah at Abiding in Grace, Denise at Gratefully Inspired and Katie at The Lane Above.  

Looking forward to seeing all of your fun ideas!

  2. Such fun! We did smores last year with out three year old for the first time and he loved it. Definitely going to have to do it more this summer!

  3. How fun!! This is a perfect idea for our family~

  4. I really like this! We were wanting to camp this summer and this may be the perfect option with having a new baby.

  5. Love this!! Perfect for our little ones - and they already love smores, so I'm sure it will be a big hit!

  6. We have done this with our kids in the past too. They loved it. The best part is when I went in the house to sleep in my bed! LOL. I'm not much for sleeping on the ground!
