Summer Fun

Summer is just around the corner for those who live in the Northern Hemisphere. Warmer weather and school vacations bring a whole new variety of activities into our schedules. This year I (Katie) am longing for some summer fun so I’ve been browsing the web for some great ideas to share. (All images are linked)


The Martha Stewart website is filled with crafts, recipes, and ideas for summer fun. You can even sign up for a free email newsletter to receive daily summer inspiration in your in-box for 60 days of Summer!



One of the best things about summer is being able to eat outside. Go on a picnic, or eat out on a patio or deck to enjoy the fresh air while you eat. has an entire section of their site devoted to picnics.


Don’t forget to fire up the grill for a barbeque. Yum! Find some fabulous grilling tips at the Better Homes & Gardens website.


If you are looking for some fun crafts to keep the kids entertained be sure to check out Family Fun. They have oodles of ideas for summer crafts and activities!


The weather doesn’t always cooperate with our plans and that can result in grumpy kids (and parents!) You will love Muffin Tin Mom’s ideas for indoor play on a rainy day.


I’m ready for some summer fun now! 🙂  Hope you get a chance to enjoy some of these  ideas and activities soon!
