The 2013 Summer Survival Calendar.... saving mom's sanity!

Today I found a new blog & mom business (to me anyway) that enables MOMS's to be the BEST they can be. Susan Heid is a PCI Certified Parent Coach & also a Certified Family Manager Coach who has created a wonderful Summer Survival Calendar for parents to use to help plan their Summer Activities. You'll find all kinds of fun things like scavenger hunts, cookouts, waterfights, nature activities and so much more!

The calendar is MORE than just a calendar though. The file you download includes the 4 months of Summer Activities - as well as links to recipes, instructions, printables, crafts and leads to FREE community activities that may be available in your area! 

Most of you know I run a small daycare in my home and saw ALL the fun things the kids and I did last year. This year is going to be even tighter on funds so we are going to need to do a lot more FREE things and I can't tell you how excited I was to see this calendar! It's exactly what I needed. Oh, I can still add all the fun activities that the Omaha Public Library offers FREE to the community (like puppet & magic shows, an anti-bullying class with one of the TaeKwondo schools in town, FREE movies, etc...) but this will make it so much easier!

2013 Summer Survival Calendar I received the Summer Calendar Bundle and the Action Guide which includes 10 Strategies for Your Best Summer Ever and an Audio Workshop that will help you get started to review here on CCB and showed it to my daycare kids (I have a 3, 5 and 8 year old I watch) and they were having great fun pouring over the calendars and picking out what they wanted to do. I personally liked all the links and all the extras that came with the Action Guide like the:
  • Summer Goals Worksheet
  • Ideas for Summer Fun checklist
  • Quiet Time Activities Worksheet
  • Important Summer Dates checklist
  • Standard Operating Procedures worksheet
  • Weekly Menu Planner/Grocery List
  • Summer Weekly Planner
  • Be Summer Organized Checklist
You can purchase this extremely affordable calendar for your family - or surprise your kids' Daycare Provider with a copy. I can tell you from experience how much providers appreciate a parent thinking about them. It can be so tough trying to plan activities that will keep kids involved and trying to spread them out for a range of ages can be extremely hard.
