100 Ways to Enjoy Your Summer and Keep Your Family Busy! 11-15

More Summertime ideas for the family!!

11. Need some kid craft inspiration?  Heather Swain's book Make These Toys is a fantastic book that will give you plenty of ideas for fun crafts made from everyday things.  

12.  How about the DRIVE-IN?  We LOVE going to the drive-in during the summer.  Find a local drive-in near you at www.drive-ins.com 

13.  Make some Homemade Ice Cream!  If you have an ice cream maker break out and make some YUMMY homemade ice cream for you 4th of July celebrations or just because.  
14.  Sidewalk Chalk Neighborhood Mural Contest! Have plenty of chalk for your 4th of July party!  We love doing sidewalk-chalk murals on 4th of July with all the neighbor kids.  It's a great tradition and brings everyone together.  Check out a previous blog post here.

Hi Tara. Haven't been here for a visit in a while. You have a nice, cheerful blog with interesting family stuff.

Good suggestions in this post. Brings back memories for Cheryl and me. Our youngest is now 17 and just left for a basketball tournament over the weekend. We usually go with her but couldn't this time (have a wedding). As she left the house she said, "You don't have to come see me off at the school." But I did anyway!

Gone are the days when we need to help find something to keep them busy and invovled! But, that is a healthy part of the transition stage, too.

Also, read a few other posts and noticed a mention of genealogy. I'm interested in working on genealogy stuff. Will you be posting more about that?
