Wild Card Wednesday: Summer Fun Jars

Summer Fun Jars
Have you ever been lying around on a nice summer day wishing you had a fun idea to entertain your kids???
Yeah, we have too!
JeNae, Teresa, & Emily decided enough was enough!  So we came up with our Summer Fun Jars.  They are chocked full of lots of fun plans to do with the kiddo's this summer.  Some cost money, but many don't.
And of course we had to get a little creative and get our craft on!  Teresa & Emily used old baby formula cans and JeNae used a mason jar.  Whatever you use is perfect!

So we dug out a ton of scrapbook paper & went to town.  We included a clothespin the the front.  The plan is to choose the activity the day before and pin it on the front.  That way the kids know what awesome activity is coming up!
Here's JeNae's:
