SUMMER List {STICKS!}

 

In my schools out post the other day

{yay!!  and eek!}

I told ya I’d share how we’re
staying on track
and
keeping track
of our summer moments!

We put this years list together with:

craft sticks

bakers twine
(raspberry colored – yum!)

letter stamps

and

some washi tape

we stamped our ideas onto each craft stick

wrapped some washi tape around the end

and trimmed it down
and then twisted a couple loops of twine

and here we are

SUMMER TO-DO LIST STICKS

summer list sticks northern cottage

We popped them into decorated milk glass holders

with a DO IT!! side

and as we complete them we’ll move them over to the DONE IT!! side!

On our list thus far:

Build a fort

Bike Ride

S’mores

Camping

Fireworks

Library

Swim

plant a garden

roadtrip

state fair

horses

Beach

Sale-ing (as in garage sales!!)

Auction

Sprinkler

Popsicles

Homemade Ice Cream

etc!!!!

 

Already this new system seems to be working better for us than our chalkboard list we used last year as
someone kept accidentally erasing stuff
(ahem!!)

 With our new sticks, we can easily add a new one
as ideas come to us

and

the satisfaction of moving it over to the DONE side
is pretty fun for the kids
(& ME TOO)!

YAY!!

 

We’ve got lots of other ideas brewing from our Pinterest board:
