July is one of my favorite months of the year so I am very happy it is here!
Our summer bucket activities are in full swing and I am loving how these little crafts and games that we pick at random each morning are forcing me to leave the housework and cooking for just a moment and enjoy my children!
We colored with magic markers which is a big deal in our house because I pretty much never allow it!
We made strawberry jam. The boys especially loved crushing the strawberries... with their hands! :)
We built a bug garden. My favorite part about this activity was that my three-year-old initiated and directed it! "The bugs need plants to eat too, Mommy." We must have some very fat and happy bugs in our yard. ;)
We played 'Go' Go Fish one afternoon after naps with my sister.
