For the last few weeks we have been collecting ideas for things we’d like to do over the summer holiday and starting to think about all the plans we have. Then yesterday Deb from Carrots and Kids shared an idea for a Summer Holiday Planner she’d seen over at the Future Craft Collective. It’s such a great way to give some shape to the holiday but still keep things flexible. It includes a calendar for any days out or events that are scheduled and pockets to fill with ideas of things to do, people to see, chores that need completing. You can pop over to the Future Craft Collective to find a complete tutorial on how to sew the planner and ideas on what to include. We went for quick and instant with our version and used envelopes stuck on with sticky tape for our pockets. We’ve included some blank cards so we can add ideas as we go along (and encourage B do keep up with her writing over the holiday too). It will also be great to have a store of ideas in the ‘things to do’ envelope, ready for the first cry of ‘I’m bored’!
Are you a holiday planner kind of family – or do you take each day as it comes?
