summer activities for kids {a link party}

Hey y’all!!  Happy Friday!!  Can I get a woot woot?  :)

This week has somehow managed to kick my butt more than most.  And I’m strangely excited that it’s Friday, even though Saturdays and Sundays around here just mean we’re tackling the bigger, two person jobs since Joel is in the hooooouuuuse.

Somehow we managed to take our house into one more level of chaos … who even knew there was another level of chaos to be had … or that we’d be a part of it.  But we sure are, smack dab in the middle of it.

Something about trying to fit our things from our previous 2000 square foot house into about 750 square feet while tearing up the remaining 550 we have at our disposal.  It leaves us with this …

Oh beautiful after shots how I yearn for your arrival.

It’s like a train wreck.

Can’t. Stop. Watching.

So, for a fun little break in the action, when Toni asked me if I’d like to participate in her Summer Camp link party I said “heck yeah”!  Design Dazzle is a great blog for anyone looking for ideas for things to do with your kids for all seasons.  Last winter I shared an easy little upcycled Christmas tree craft idea and for part of this Summer Camp series I shared my super easy craft idea, the driftwood fish.

Co-hosting a link party where we can gather a plethora (one of my favorite words of all time … and ubiquitous … love that one, too) of summer activities for kids into one great resource = Brilliant!


The link party will run through July 26th and will include all of this year’s summer camp projects, but we want YOU to link up your summer fun activities as well, so we can ALL get some great new ideas for the upcoming summer months!

Feel free to link up any projects, ideas, crafts, etc. that you have created which involve Summer Fun & Kids.

All ideas added to our Summer Camp link party will automatically appear on all of the wonderful participating blogs seen below, who were all part of the Design Dazzle Summer Camp series:

    Wow! Moving is so much fun (and so is renovating) but it is really nice to have a home where everything has it’s place! Can’t wait to see the after shots!!! :)
