Last summer got away from us. This summer won't. We actually have our family plans on the calendar already! Below is what we are hoping to do this summer. Boldfaced items are plans that we already completed.
Our Family Plans:
Dutch Wonderland (amusement park)
family camp in the Poconos
To Make and Eat with the Children:
Rice Krispy Treats
Fruit pizza (with cookie crust)
Butterfly cupcakes or here (made the cake!)
Zoo Day at the chip factory
Hershey's free tour
VBS and/or Backyard Bible Clubs
A week in northeastern PA with family
Train Ride (just visit, no ride)
Hands-On Museum (M did with friend, but we didn't go as family)
We will do some crafts and play with friends, too. I suspect our library trips will be more frequent, too. Our kiddie pool and water table are still put away, but will be used soon. We're looking forward to a good summer!
(If you have any other non-stovetop ideas for creating food with kids, please share! We already bake some together, but I'm trying to figure out some new things to make that are very hands-on, while appropriate for a 2 and 4 year old.)
Skillet Meatloaf Recipe - Maybe my mom made meatloaf when I was a child, but I don't remember it. Any time I had it as a teen, I disliked it. Maybe I just needed to wait for the rig...
