Summer Schedule for Kids

This is the second year in a row my family will be following this fun summer schedule. It keeps the kids just busy enough to have something to look forward to each day and definitely adds variety to our summer schedule.

Here is an image that can be printed and laminated and then you can use a dry-erase marker to write the activity you have planned each day:

  1. this is great! thanks:)

  2. Oh I love this! Wonderful idea! I’m going to have to use it with my four year old. Thanks!

  3. Cute Idea! I too created a summer schedule but it is more what we are going to do during each hour of the day. I thought it would be good to get it on paper that my kids are expected to do chores, read, and have quiet time each day, in addition to all the fun activities we will be doing. I sure hope it works!

  4. Thanks!! I will for sure be using this idea.

  5. I saw this on Pinterest today! Thanks so much for creating and sharing — it’s perfect!

  17. Hi! I linked over here from ann voskamp. Wanted to tell you that I’ve been an at-home mom for almost 17 years and I have four kids. I should have thought of a simple schedule like this, but I never did. We’ve used this loose schedule this week with great success :) It helped me keep my younger two kids engaged and looking forward to something. Just the right amount of structure, but not too rigid. Thank you :)

  18. Love this! Printing now to put on the fridge. Thank you!

    I’d love for you to link up and share:

  19. This is ingenius! Will use this summer for sure! Thanks for sharing!

  20. LOVE this! I am unable to print it off though… is there a download?

  21. Love this idea for my hubby who will soon face his first summer as a stay at home daddy!! Thanks! =)

  22. Hi I love this I was wondering If there is anyway you could upload this so it’s changeable I just wanted to switch around some of the days!

    Thanks this really is great!!

  23. We have done this the last few years – it has worked really well!! Being flexible is important but being able to look forward to activites is great!!

  24. What a great idea! Will definitely be using this with my boys this summer. Thanks!

    I’m trying to open the pdf but it is not working. Can you email the pdf “summer schedule for kids” to me? Thank you.

  26. This is awesome thanks!

  27. Sorry to bother you again. Ipiccy doesnt allow me to upload pdf. Can it be converted to a jpeg?

  28. I am going to print this out for my granddaughter-in-law. Her children were bored by 3rd day of summer vacation, so this might help her out. Thank you for great idea. Take care.

  29. I saw this pinned a while back and just recently remembered and then could not find it, my wonderful friend just sent me the link and I have very happy, I am going to use this idea for my three and two year old’s week!

    thank you for this! Am printing it our right now and cant wait to get going on a fun and organized summer.

  31. Hello! I love this idea. Do you have this PDF available in black and white, or at least in darker colors? My printer only prints out b&w and with the light green, it barely shows up! Obviously, I can draw it in myself, I just like the way yours looked! Thanks a million.
