Like a many families we live on a budget and our piggy bank doesn't contain enough pennies for a fancy vacation. While we would love to visit faraway places, we simply cannot afford it. Now, I may not be able to take my kiddo to Cuba or Disneyland, but I can make sure he has a fabulous summer staycation at home.
And so I created this adventure book especially for my kid using Graphic 45 staples and papers. It contains all sorts of things to do, challenges and activities to be accomplished over the summer holiday. There's approximately one tag for each week of summer vacation.
What activities are in the book?
trip to grandpas farm (done!)
plan a pool party (this weeks tag, party day is tomorrow!)
a night at the drive-in
photography challenge (a list of things to take photos of)
sushi and kung-fu movie night
prepare and enjoy a picnic
write a secret coded message (with cypher wheel and blank postcard)
a checklist of activities for July including camping on the lawn and making a mud pit
treetop treking adventure with dad .....and my personal favourite
treasure map to find a tin of buried coins!
Most of the pages have a tag or pocket that can be used for keepsakes of the 'mini-adventures' when completed. The tickets, photographs, notes and drawings he collects will be a reminder of the great summer we spent at home... and hopefully serve as a reminder that you don't need a lot of money to create great memories, just a little bit of imagination
