Summer officially arrives this weekend, and I can’t wait! Neither can Kallista who has actually been counting down its arrival for the past 5 weeks! In honour of this, and in anticipation of having as much fun as we can this year (while sneaking in some learning opportunities as well), I’m featuring over 80 outdoor summer activities for kids! And if you have some bad weather, there are also some indoor activities as well.
If you missed last week’s round-up, I featured Over 300 Father’s Day Ideas. Have a look through and be inspired! This resource for Moms is packed full of parenting tips, activities for children, crafts, recipes and more!
