Not one of my parenting priorities, but just something fun: theme days. Having theme days allows to do a variety of different things under a certain theme. This keeps the kids busy and sometimes allows me to be more closely involved with their play. Here are some of the theme days we have planned for this summer:
First Day of Summer Party
Yard Game Day
Last Day of Summer Party
I always plan for plenty–that way, when I don’t get to all of them, we still remember the ones we were able to have fun with. Our favorite: Spa Day! Last year, each of the kids invited a friend over, and we painted nails, made homemade chocolate face masks, and did some hair. This is another MUST DO for this year!
What are some of your favorite themes?
