Hearing that brings about feelings of excitement for picnics, being outside (and hopefully getting a tan) and adventure. But with 4 kids 5 and under, it also brings about a tinge of fear and worry. What in the world am I going to do to keep them occupied for 1400 hours this summer?!
I love my kids and love spending time with them but... my boys... well, they are boys and given too much free play someone gets hurt every 30 minutes. So I need a plan. I've come up with a flexible summer schedule but I don't want to just entertain them but foster a sense the world is bigger than them and doesn't revolve around them. So I thought of 25 summer missional activities for kids I hope to incorporate into our summer schedule.
25 Summer Missional Activities for Kids
1. Chalk Messages. Draw pictures, verses and sayings like “Jesus Loves You” on the sidewalk.
