Earlier this year, I purchased quite a few attraction tickets through Groupon and at a silent auction at our church. With so many options, sometimes we simply can’t decide where to go.
To remedy the problem, I created a simple Summer Fun Container.
To get started, I dug through my craft cabinet and found a small container, some vellum paper, stickers and Sharpie markers.
I spent a few minutes decorating my empty, clean container with stickers.
Next I made a list of all the places that I already have tickets for.
I may have added places that we already have tickets for, but you could easily create your own list with ideas of things to do with your family. You could get started with:
- Take a walk at a local park
- Go out for ice cream
- Eat somewhere that you’ve never eaten before
- Go for a night hike
- Have a family night movie marathon
I cut them apart.
And placed them in the container.
Next time we have a free day, we’ll appoint someone to draw a slip of paper and we’ll be off. Although I did the work on this craft, you could easily get the children involved. They can decorate the container and write down some things they’d like to do for the summer.
So, tell me…who makes the decision of where to go in your home?
