Being a mom is all about balance. The hardest part of balancing your career with family life is finding the time to do both. However, summer is an important part of childhood too. That's why I've put together a list of ideas you can add to your summer routine—without needing to spend a lot of money. This summer you'll make more memories than last year, and your kids will benefit from having you around more. So plan some activities for yourself this summer and enjoy them!
Get outside and play! It can be a great way to clear your head, clear distractions and practice life skills. Summer is a great time to get outside and be active. Have fun with family and friends. Bring the kids picnics and games. Go for a walk in the park or to the beach. There are so many great things to do in summer. You are free to do more things that are so much fun and healthy for you and your family.
Adventure at Home
It's not just about enjoying the sun, watery beaches, and fluffy white clouds. Summer is also the perfect opportunity for moms to make summer memories at home! It's a great time to introduce your children to new activities, try new recipes, and learn new ways to spend time with family. Whether it’s starting a board game night, getting in a round of Nerf gun war, making popsicles, or putting out the sprinkler on a hot day - there are loads of adventures to be had at home and in your backyard!
Make Movement Fun
Incorporate physical activity into your summer routine. Whether it’s going on daily walks, having dance breaks in the living room, trying out family yoga, or throwing together relay races in the backyard - if you are making movement fun and a priority, your children will do the same. Consider signing up for a local sports class or team or seeing what the rec center has to offer. Regular movement can be fun (and make summer more memorable at the same time)!
Summer is the best time to start activities that will help you stay fit and healthy. Summer is a great time to get outside and get active. It's important to remember that your kids are still learning about the world around them through the way you experience the world. Parenting is about habits and experiences that build on each other over time and incorporating fun movement into your summer will definitely be worth it!
