Final Days of Summer: Last Hurrah Ideas

It seems like the Summer heat is just kicking in here in the Midwest, but believe it or not, I'm seeing pictures of kids heading back to school today!  With that in mind, I'm rounding up some of my favorite ideas to say farewell to Summer with your kids.

1. Discover a new park.  My kids LOVE finding new parks, hiking trails, and picnic spots.  Surprise them with a fun morning of discoveries!

2.  Splurge on "Treats".  It's true. Our house is going to have to go on ice cream detox any day now.  I'm OK with that. We've had an excellent Summer!

3.  Go OUT to lunch with special friends.  Be sure to bring along activities to do while you wait for your food.  Luckily, my pal Maureen busted out an entire playdoh set. Well done, Maureen!  And, well, as I look at the photo below...see item #2 :-)

4.  Day trip somewhere new.  On my list is a new splash pad that I just heard about.  It's only an hour away, free, and sure to be safe and fun for the littles.  We'll bring a picnic lunch and nap on the ride home.  Is there a beach near you?  Make a day of it!

Are your kids headed back to school?  Have you done anything special in these last few days?
