Summer Lovin’

Posted on Jul 25 2013 - 10:01am by Rach's Place

The Summer Break is here – well actually my older 2 broke up from school on Monday but its been hectic since then.

Mr Bear has 2 weeks off at the end of the summer break. We are off to Devon for a week at the end of the break which will certainly be welcome!

Unfortunately it means that I have to entertain 4 children on my own for most of the day for the next 3 and a bit weeks.

I’ve bought some crafty bits for the older 3 to play with and create. Capt.Chaos is doing a little “Tennis Summer Camp” type thing with his tennis coach in mid August for a week, so that’s a few hours a day to keep him occupied.

I’m hoping the weather will brighten up a bit more after the rain the and cooler weather the past few days so we can perhaps have a few picnics and park days.

I think I need to plan more of a structure to the holidays this year. Not just for me, but for the kids too, otherwise I can see days of doing nothing and just getting stressed occurring.

Do you plan summer holiday activities?

What ideas do you have to keep the kids entertained for the summer?
