Every summer I ask my kids to write down things they want to do during summer break. The ideas can be practical like "go for a hike" o insane like "bungee jump out of a hot air balloon." (I try to keep an open mind.)
Several nights a week, we will put our hands in the "Summer Jar" and pull out the next day's activity. We don't get to them all, and, yes, I nix a few. But it adds a lot of fun and excitement to summer days.
Ahead are 50 ideas going into this year's Summer Jar.
