Welcome to the Christian Mama’s Guide Pin-tastic Summer

It’s summer!  It’s summer!  It’s summer!

Let me just tell you that I am NOT the mom that dreads the last day of school.  I’ve been counting down the days to the last day for weeks now.  I can’t wait for no more early mornings, no more packing lunches, no more homework, and most importantly no more carpool.   (Thank goodness, thank goodness, thank goodness!)

This summer is even more exciting because I’m making it a point to celebrate spending time with my kids.  Even if that means my floor goes unmopped (what are wet towels for anyway?) and my laundry piles up (it’s summer, who cares what they wear?)  This summer, we’re going to have fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun.

Can you tell I’m a little excited?

I want to invite you to join our fun in the sun this summer so I’m hosting a Pin-Tastic Summer. 

Here’s how it works:

*  Every weekday starting in June, I will post a fun craft, activity, science experiment, sensory experience or recipe centered on a theme right here on the Christian Mama’s Guide blog.  These Pin-Tastic Summer ideas are targeted towards kids ages 2-10 although slightly younger and/or older kids can certainly participate.  

Week 1:  Mad Scientist Week

Week 2:  Rainbow Week

Week 3:  Alphabet Week

Week 4:  Music Week

Week 5:  4th of July Week

*  Every Saturday, I will announce the week’s theme along with a shopping list.  This is so you can get ready for your Pin-Tastic Summer week by buying supplies early (if you’re a type-A person like me) or think about getting prepared but procrastinate actually doing it until Monday (if you’re type-B).  Either way, the shopping list will consist of things that are easy to find (no trips to the ethic grocery store or to a hole-in-the-wall sewing shop) so you’ll be all ready to actually do the activities I post on my blog each day.   

*  I will also be pinning my own photos from each activity as well as the photos that my readers send me onto my Pin-Tastic Summer Pinterest board.  By the end of the summer, I hope to have a huge collection of fun images, ideas and summer activities.  Email your photos to erin@christianmamasguide.com or pin them to your own Pintastic Summer board and send me the pin.

Follow the Pin-Tastic Summer Pinterest Board now.

Get the Pin-Tastic Summer themes and shopping list sent to your inbox every Saturday all summer.  Sign up now.

 I can’t wait for our fantastic, fun summer.  Will you join me?
