Friday Fun Links – More “Summer Is Coming” linkage…
I’m back again (although a little late today) with more “summer is coming” fun links for you and your kids/grandkids.
The HEAT has begun here in Las Vegas, and the kids can only play outside for 20-30 minutes before they come in dying of thirst and cranky. So, this week’s links are designed for those “beat the heat” kind of days… of which we’ll have approximately 120 to get through before the thermometer comes down below 90 degrees (you know, in October).
Summer Reading Programs:
- Jennifer of Adventures in McQuill-land has a great post about Summer Reading programs through Borders AND Barnes and Noble. Jennifer will ALSO be writing a guest post here TOMORROW about books and kids, so check back to read that, will you?
- Scholastic has a Summer Challenge going on through their website, along with some great articles
- This link is for “snow day” activities, but really… it doesn’t matter if you are inside because of extreme cold or heat, the activities will still be fun!
- Do your kids like to color? Mine do! Here’s a great list of summer printables
- Great indoor themed games for kids
- Have you ever visited Enchanted Learning? A large part of their site requires a membership, BUT there are plenty of FREE craft projects and ideas too!
- I found this fabulous page full of “Nick Jr. Summer Recipes” for kids. If your kids are like MY kids, they will love these ideas!
- And here’s another nice LONG list of summer recipes for kids
- Found this recipe for yummy Chocolate Covered Banana Pops
- And this recipe for popsicles
- And a video about making your own ice cream sandwiches!
And now, my kids are hungry and “bored”, so we’re off to try a recipe or game or two!
Happy Friday, folks…
