Planning is the key! Bored kids are more likely to get into mischief and fight with siblings. Have lots of ideas ready and avoid those problems as much as possible.

Father’s Day is celebrated each year in the U.S. on the third Sunday in June. This year that is June 15.
It would be a nice gesture to do something for your host dad. You could help the children make a surprise for her or give him a card yourself. Don’t forget to send a special message to your own father, back home.

I just saw this on Facebook and I thought it was such a simple idea that could really make your kids day. Imagine if you were a kid and every day when you open your lunch box, you find a different drawing on your sandwich bag.
The person who made the designs here just uses colored Sharpie markers on regular ziploc lunch bags. Check out his Flickr album for lots of inspiration. This is something you could start right now at the end of the school year or plan for next school year. The designs can be simple, so you don’t need to be a great artist to make this special. You can decorate the baggies ahead of time or get up early and enjoy some art time before the kids get up. The possibilities are endless! If you give this a try, I would love to see some of your creations, so please share.
The term “bucket list” was popularized in the 2007 Jack Nicholson/Morgan Freeman movie. The idea is to make a list of things you want to do before you “kick the bucket” (which is an idiom referring to death.) Even though that sounds kind of morbid, the idea has taken off as something much more positive and people create bucket lists to log the things they want to do at some point in their life.
With that said, a Summer Bucket list is a list of things to do before this summer ends.
