10 Fun Things To Do With Your Kids This Summer

Woohoo, it’s summertime!! Summer days = lots of time with family and friends, lazy days of reading, time to just play, be silly and chill out. Of course, after a few weeks of summer, the kids start getting ornery and they need to be, uh, challenged and given some things to do. Here are ten fun things that I’m planning on doing with my kids this summer. 1. Make Lava Lamps by Juggling with Kids It’s easy, it’s cheap, and it can be done with things around the house and doesn’t take 3 weeks to complete. My favorite kind of project.   2. Q-tip Art by La Classe della maestra Valentina (Use google translate) So simple, so pretty, so much potential to keep them busy for hours.   3. Make bigger, badder, cooler bubbles. Make Your Own Pretty Bubble Wands – Use Copper Wire and old beads. Go here to read about how you can make gigantico bubbles and what you need to get the big bublbes.  And make giant bubbles to go with it, recipe by designdazzle.blogspot.com 4.  I’m not sure what you call this but it looks like great fun. Crayon Melt? See how here. Idea by wearethatfamily.com 5. For Star Wars Fans – make  a Stormtrooper Helmet out of a milk jug. Why not? Idea by Handmade Charlotte 6. Make Mini Banana Splits 7.  Hours of building fun. And marshmallows. 8. Throw some glow sticks in the tub and let them play in glowing bubbles. 9. Make silly family photos 10. Got a hill? Make a homemade slip and slide by taping together a couple of large...
The Great Sand Dunes (when they’re not so great)

The Great Sand Dunes (when they’re not so great)

It should have been the perfect Mother’s Day weekend. Every time we mentioned that we were heading to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve near Alamosa, our friends and acquaintances got a dreamy, distant look in their eyes. Oh, they had loved the sand dunes. The sand had been so warm! The wide shallow Medano river that runs beside the dunes in the spring was so much fun to wade in. The high dunes were perfect for sledding and playing! We were repeatedly told to bring sunscreen and plenty of shade. The sand dunes are the tallest in North America and cover 300 square miles. In the spring with the water running, they offer Colorado’s version of a summer beach– except, that is, when they’re Colorado’s version of a Nor’Easter. Alas, we arrived to the latter.                        But when life blows sand, you build a sand castle, right? We tried. We really did. For two nights, we stuck it out in the camp grounds we had so diligently reserved six months prior when we’d envisioned tank tops and sunburns. Instead, snow piled up on the surrounding peaks. Weird fingers of clouds crept low over the mountains, obscuring everything in a bitter cold mist. The wind and rain blew through the campground so fiercely that a campfire was foolhardy, if not impossible. The one time we tried, it took 10 matches to light. And it was cold out. Really cold.                    On the first morning, we headed to the park visitor’s center which...
