"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!
