If you’re NOT busy with sports like we always are…Here are some fun ideas to do with the kiddos this weekend!
It’s getting nice outside for us lucky Vegas residents, so get out to the park! Enjoy the weather before it gets blistering hot!! Did your kids get a new bike over the holidays? Get those training wheels on (or take them off!) and get outside!
Saturdays are great days to spend at the library, so don’t forget this free option for story time!
Here are a couple of ideas of what Ava and I did last weekend and what we typically do on weekends!
I wanted to find a unique way of displaying the artwork Ava comes home from school with every week. This was very simple! All I did was nail some string into the empty wall (or you can use push pins) and used clothes pins to hang up the artwork. When it gets full I have a binder ready to put away our favorite pieces. Having her choose which ones she wants to keep helps include her in the process and to teach her not to be a hoarder! 🙂
We also LOVE playing games! We always play at least 3 games twice. It’s a great way to get away from electronic devices including the television and it also keeps us out of the Vegas heat! 🙂
What are some of your favorite things to go on the weekends?
For all those going back to school Monday, here is a German tradition that I am passing down to my daughter. It’s called a schultuete, or kinder cone. It’s given to the child after the first day off school and is really simple to make!! It’s to celebrate the first day of school and is filled with candy, toys, and or school supplies.
It’s the end of my work week for me, yay!! Here is a great idea to do with or for the kids this weekend! This is a great idea if you are limited for play space. 🙂
I transformed my daughter’s playroom closet into a little reading/play area to give her something different. 🙂
I bought a kindercare mat from Target, a basket to put books in (2 simple screws to hang on the wall), a locker mirror, a easy-to-use hook, and 2 bed pillows. I added a pink sarong and an orange sarong, that I rarely used, for decoration, and covered the mat with an old sheet and an old comforter that she hardly ever used but was perfectly princess material!
She absolutely loves hanging out in her little extra special space.
A great idea for something to do this weekend would be to get some school shopping done! 🙂 I took my soon-to-be-kindergartener to Target tonight and got her supplies! She was so excited! Next up will be school uniforms! 🙂 Target is the best with having everything SOOO super organized! Love it!!
