My mom saw this idea for a "100 things to do in the summer bucket list" So, when we got home from Utah we made out our list of 100 things we wanted to do this summer and wrote them all on a cute chart on a poster board. We have been working hard to do at least one item each day- some are easier to do than others! It was a cute idea and the girls are having a blast marking off each thing as we do it!
One of the things on our bucket list was to plant something. Kaylee went to the store to help me pick out some very pretty pink and yellow flowers. The girls had a blast helping dad plant them in the back yard and have been very responsible at watering them each day ever since!
Another item on our list was washing the car by hand. Our car had not been washed all winter and was in quite bad shape! The girls were good helpers- although I think they thought it was more of a water party than work:-)
The girls are always wanting to do arts and crafts so our chart had to include a couple of arts and crafts projects. So far, we have learned to make friendship bracelets and have made these life size posters of ourselves. The girls thought it was so fun to lay down and trace their bodies and then decorate the tracings to look just like them. I think they did a pretty good job! They wanted to hang their posters on either sides of their bed so they could show them off to daddy when he got home from work.
