Sometimes your summer plans fall apart and you are forced to stay in your own home town.  This does not have to be a disappointment. You can pretend you are the tourist and make it fun for the whole family.  Have you ever thought of turning your home into a hotel? Think of what you like most of the hotel you usually go to. Perhaps you can switch rooms for the night  Rent a movie for the family, or order take-out and eat it on a smaller table.  You can also take a walk around your neighborhood and discover something new.  Other options include visiting the local museum or a market you never been too.  Try to be creative and positive.  You might have fun exploring!

Summer Fun Organizing

Summer is a great time to teach some home management skills.  I know you probably think I am crazy for saying this but what better time to involve your kids in cooking and organizing the house then the summer.
Planning BB Q's, car washes, baking, redecorating the house are great chores.  You would be surprised how fun you can make these activities if you just include the right incentive.

Think of the things  that you wish you know at a younger age.  Try to experiment and teach you kids some basic cooking and baking skills.  Invite a friend or two to join in the fun. Just last week I had my 8 year old grandson sleep over and we baked and cooked before bedtime and early in the morning.  He was so proud to present the delicious treats to his parents at the dinner table.

The time you invest in teaching and involving your kids in basic skills will help them for the rest of their life.
