Summer "to do" list

A few weeks ago, I started brainstorming a list of things we'd do to fill up the days this summer. It was helpful to me to feel like we had some things planned instead of just winging it each day. I signed the kids up for some lessons, researched some local free activities and scoured blogs and the web for craft/recipe ideas. I came up with this list and turned it into subway art to frame and hang in the playroom.

Then, I saw this cute picture idea on pinterest (LOOOVE this website, not sure if this link will work, but you can try clicking here if you want to "follow" my boards... ), so I made one for both kids:

Here's how they look hanging up in the playroom. (I had all of these frames already and even had the primer and paint from past projects, so total cost of adding this "artwork" to the playroom was under $10 for the prints!)

(The playroom is a work in progress...either need to put a door or curtain or some kind on that closet!)
