Summers are the perfect time to make memories with your kids, but you don't have to have a million things planned to have fun!

In fact, sometimes letting your kids be bored is actually beneficial.


It let's them use their imagination and build creativity!

This summer, give yourself permission to let your kids be bored.

Pick one fun thing to do every day with your kids that maybe they couldn't during school time, even if it's small like enjoying a popsicle.

Then plan one extra fun thing to do every week with your kids, like a trip to the swimming pool or splash pad.

You can't let the mom guilt push you into over scheduling, and then burning out a few weeks in.


After all, the best memories are the ones where everyone is having fun!
