First Day of Summer Box

As the end of the school year approaches, we are getting ready for Summer! A few things that will keep us busy are participating in our local library's Summer Reading Program, playing soccer, music camp through our Preschool, and swimming lessons at our gym. Hopefully we can squeeze in some camping and a family trip as well! To get excited about Summer, my son and I decided to make a "First Day of Summer Box," which he can open on the last day of school. Now you can surprise your child with this box of fun summer things, or you can take them to the store (because face it - your kids are always with you!) and have them help you pick some fun items out.

So, I took Kinley to Target and he selected a few 'treasures' to put in our box. The box is just a shoe box that I wrapped up with wrapping paper. A few treasures he selected were fruit snacks, gummy bears, a magnifying glass, three small trucks, a book, a DVD, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and a water gun. Some other ideas to include could be a swimming suit, sunglasses, sun block, a towel, a soccer ball, etc. Have fun with this and get excited for Summer!

Looking forward to opening his box next week!
