7-Up

It is Saturday, July 4th. Can you believe it? In my hometown, school just let out eight days ago, and graduation is the evening AFTER school is dismissed for the summer. However, some schools have been out for several weeks.
Are your children already driving you crazy already? Even if they are in daycare all day, the longer hours of daylight tends to make them act like the Energizer bunny. Have you planned creativity of some type into their days? This can be outdoor ball games like 7-Up, or indoor card games like 7-Up? And, of course, they can drink 7-Up while playing.

Are you familiar with these games? I had totally forgotten about them until now and did not remember to teach my kids the ball game. 

What are some creative ways you keep the kids busy in the summer? Leave a comment below to share your ideas.

Enjoy!
