I'm constantly looking for ways to keep my kiddos from looking like this All. Day. Long.
This is how I want them to look- happy, intelligent, engaged and having a good time.
Here's the summer schedule that I put together to keep my family on track, my house livable, my kids occupied and my summer enjoyable:
7:00- Wake up, Family Scripture study, Get dressed, Make bed/Clean room
7:45- Morning jobs *before breakfast* 1 per kid (Unload dishwasher, H2O garden, Take out trash, H2O front plants) Breakfast.
8:15 Clean up breakfast
8:30 Morning Exercise- walk, ride bike, roller-blade, run, ball game etc.
10:00 Practice Instruments or Personal reading
11:00 Outside Play or Swim
12:30 Babies take nap
1:00 Brain Fun: Board games, friends, building toys, play outside, crafts or art activity.
2:30 Wii Free time
4:30 Pick up house
5:00 Dinner time jobs- set table, unload dishwasher AGAIN, dinner prep
5:30 Dinner and Clean-up
7:00 Babies to bed- Movie for kids who were kind, courteous, and civil to their brothers and sisters... violators go to bed.
How do you keep your kids busy?
