Keeping Them Busy

Am I the only one receiving at least one flyer a day for "ways to keep my kids busy during the summer"??

Saftey Town
Sports Camp
Summer School
Vacation Bible School
Taekwondo Camp
Enrichment Camp
Tennis Lessons
Swimming Lessons
Riding Lessons
Rocket Camp
Lego Camp
Bug Safari
Math Adventures
Chinese Folk Art Summer Camp

Chinese Folk Art Summer Camp?!  What?  Am I the only one that thinks that sounds like...less fun than this:

I'm all for learning over the summer.  But I'm more for playing over the summer.  As you are enrolling kids in activities for the summer, ask yourself what they are going to do at this camp actually better than what they would come up with themselves?

  1. Yes! I completely agree. We take the summer off from all scheduled activities. Except for swim lessons, because, you know, safety. We love our summers, the kids make their own fun, and haven't yet complained about being bored.
