Summer Fun~For the Kids

Hey everyone! How are you? I know some of you already have chillins on Summer Break but I dont yet. Which is kinda a great thing it gives me one more week to get things in order for the kids to be home.

In order you ask? Yeah I pretty much like to have stuff planned out for our summer. It makes it a LOT easier for me to function. This past year I got use to my first year of being home alone. Yup just little ol' me and my crafts. Hey wait a minute I'm not complaining this is fabulous but I like to give tons of time to my kiddos too. I do better if I have it planned out.

So here is the first of many things we will be doing for our "Baca's NEVER bummer summer" lol yup we totally stole Judy Moody's theme for our summer~ ;)

This whole idea came about from this Pin Click HERE to see it.

So here it is.

On to the pictures...bear in mind these are not edited pictures just thrown on here. ;)

Here is our fun money. I found these Here and then I printed them and then cut them with my Cameo. Thanks Jamie for showing me how to do this YOU ROCK!!!!

I made 36 dollars (various amounts) They ALL represent one (1) Dollar in our store. Heinz sight I should have made more money. I have 3 little ones and I am quickly running out of money. ;)

Five dollars out of all 36 have a special sticker on the back. (More on this later)

The first drawer on the top has items they can buy for five (5) dollars.

The second drawer has items they can buy for ten (10) dollars. YUP tons of junk food. Its summer and they are only kids once. I'm okay with it.

Third drawer has items worth fifteen (15) dollars.
Last drawer has stuff that is worth (20) dollars. (Most if not ALL of this was bought on clearance for under 2.00 each)

This is the chart that has all their options for the special circles on the back. If they get a special circle on one(or more) of their dollars they can use one circle per week. The sections are broken up into "free" the top items we have annual passes and things like that. They are virtually free. You can find things to do around your town that are free. I debated over taking them to the park and library but those shouldnt be rewards just part of our routine. ;)

Here is the entire store closed up.

The stuff on top is excess stuff. I went a little crazy when I bought the initial store stuff. I probably wont have to buy anything for a little while. Mid summer maybe lol.

Thanks yall for stopping by!!!! Hope you are having a great week!
