Fun Activities for Kids for Summertime

By about the third day of summer vacation, kids start using that dreaded word… bored! Help them see the fun that is still to be done (and maybe a few chores…) with the help of Mom’s Summer Toolkit! We have fun activities for kids, chores for kids, and an EMERGENCY file full of over-the-top fun to cure those boredom blues. To make it even better, it’s super easy to put together! Grab a container of sorts, 3 envelopes, and some glue – that’s it! You are ready to go!

This totally solves our summer boredom problem! Plus made it so cute! #FunActivitiesforKids #ChoresForKids #MomsSummerToolkit #TheDatingDivas

Fun Activities for Kids Surprise Box

There are two different design sections: clouds in a BEAUTIFUL blue sky and black tools on a vibrant yellow background. Print out however many you want to use. I used one of each and made them work for the size of my box. We also have an adorable “Mom’s Summer Toolkit” label to use as well.  Are any of these necessary? Not really but they are cute. And it might save your box from being tossed out with all the other Amazon boxes that seem to accumulate thanks to Prime…

Fun Activities for Kids Summer Activities

 There are three categories to choose from. If you just need some fun activities for kids, turn to the Summer Activities envelope. There are 10 suggestions to keep everyone smiling during those summer days. Some take a little foresight, so read over them to make sure you are good for all activities. Of course, you can include your own ideas, we even have a few blanks if you want to make sure to color coordinate.

Summer Chores and Other Fun Activities for Kids

We also have an envelope of chores for kids. Use at your discretion. These could be incentives for a fun summer activity, or it can be for when they say they’re bored the 9th time that hour. Whatever you need, Mama!

Emergency Fun Activities for Kids

And now. The envelope you’ve all been waiting for—EMERGENCY! 10 over-the-top fun activities for kids. Make your own ice cream, create an obstacle course, or maybe a slip-n-slide! Big activities that are sure to be a change from the norm.

Prepping Fun Activities for Kids

To put this all together just slice and glue. There are main labels for your three envelopes as well as the 10 ideas for each category. I didn’t want to be caught unaware, so I also prepped my box with some needed supplies. I grabbed some sidewalk chalk and a toddler-sized broom along with some other summer must-haves. This way you will have the needed supplies whenever the toolkit makes an appearance.
