With summer break approaching, it can become pretty challenging to come up with ideas to stay busy with the kids, especially if you are home with them every day. I came up with this idea, and hope you find some fun in it this summer!
Remember the Paper Fortune Teller game we used to play as kids?
Well, I thought with summer coming, it might be a fun activity to help add a little spontaneity in your family’s lives this summer! My idea is to fill the “fortune” slots with different things to do around Madison. Then, on days where you have no plans, but the weather is beautiful outside, you can suggest your kids pick a color and a number and then leave the activity up to chance!
