When you live in Arizona the summers can be a little tricky. It really is too hot to let the kiddos play outside very long, but you really don’t want them just being TV zombies.
This summer I didn’t really have to worry about planning things for the kids to do. Big J came up with a plan on his own.
Every other day during the week the kids have “stations”. They have it organized so each person starts on a different station each day and each station lasts one hour. When I say organized, I mean organized. They printed up a calendar with the rotation schedule and everything. They set the timer and just rotate throughout the day with breaks for lunch and chores.
The reading station:
I love this station. There are days that they are reading for 3 hours. How awesome is that.
The whatever station:
This station is, well, whatever. The computer is real popular during this time.
The Wii station:
Surprisingly this has been one of the more popular games at the Wii station.
Even with the boys.
Yeah I had to bribe him to let me post a picture of him playing the game, but it was well worth the money it cost me!
Since this is something they came up with on their own it is fun for them and since it is every other day there is plenty of time for us to go and do other things.
