Last Day of School~Hello Summer Basket

"Hello Summer" Basket
Last year I had this Hello Summer basket of goodies waiting inside the door for the kids. 
Inside I stashed fun things to get them ready for, and keep them busy during, the summer.

Here are some of the things I put in for each of them:

A new book or set of books. 
I bought some used ones at Hastings.

A journal.  I got these in the $1 section at Michaels.  We didnt fill them so we will use them again this summer.
Be sure to interview them on the first page: 
Who's your best friend? Whats your favorite subject?  Height, weight, favorites, etc.

A mini sunblock, mini bugspray, glasses, and a chapstick.  Be frugal, I got most of these things with coupons or at the $1 store!

A school work book with fancy pencils.  I got the workbooks at Ross for $4.  Pencils were on clearance for less than $1 for the package.

A game to play together.  Use coupons for games.  I got Sorry for less than $1.50.

A craft kit (Michaels has lots of these). 
Be sure to use the weekly 40% off one item coupon.

Outside toys:  Bubbles, chalk, etc

Water toys:  squirt guns, water balls, & water balloons

Other Super Ideas: towels, flip flops, swimsuits, resuable water bottles, anything you get them for summer but havent given them yet!


  1. What a great idea with the "summer" basket! I think I will make one for my girls! Thank you for sharing!

  2. FUN! I may have to put together something like that for my boys on the last day of school! Thanks for the great idea!
