5 Fun Ways to Welcome Summer!

What could be more exciting that celebrating the END of the School Year???? How about celebrating the BEGINNING of Summer?? 
As we are always VERY excited for summer to start, we like to welcome it in a very FUN way.

Here are 5 FUN ways to WELCOME SUMMER!

Bus Stop Party
Welcome your children home from school right as they step off the school bus for the last time that year with signs, party hats and noisemakers.  Make a big deal and watch them come off the bus cheering!

Water Fight
Have loads of water balloons & filled water guns at the ready, so you can make a big splash as they get home.  This is a great idea for the whole street to get into a big water fight together.  Make sure you recruit other parents so everyone can be involved.  One year, we took it a step further and used whipped cream!

School Year Finish Line
Create a BIG sign that says "Welcome to Summer" and drape it across your door way.  Have the kids run through it with arms in the air...they are celebrating a milestone!

Buckets O' Summer Fun
Fill a bucket with all the supplies you need to start your summer off with a bang.  We always fill one with new sunscreen, goggles, fun snacks, books, and new games to try.

Surprise Trip
Blindfold your children and take them somewhere fun for the weekend.  Kick off your summer travels with a surprise trip. Here in Texas, we have some fantastic resorts to go to for a few days, such a Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort or the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country.

Take one of these great ideas and start your summer off in a FUN way!!  Happy Summer!
