If there’s one thing I’ve had to get really, really good at as a parent, it’s how to keep the kids busy in the summer months. This summer I’m being extra organized with my time (which is a huge feat in and of itself), so I’ve been able to take off Fridays to play with my kids. This has also had the beneficial side effect of keeping them out of my office during the rest of the week, because they know I have to get stuff done to have our Fun Fridays.
A few years ago, I wrote Ninety-Four Ways to Keep Kids Busy for the Work at Home Parent. Little did I realize that it would become one of the most popular articles I would write—ever. Evidently, a few other moms and dads also needed a little help balancing work at kids. Go figure.
That one article has spawned a business around creating cool kids activities. Here are some of the best summer printables and projects we have!
