summer break week #1

**My kids are currently on summer break. Like last year (see 2013's summer break activities here), I am planning to do one, fun activity with them every day. I will be documenting our various projects together and sharing them here on Saturday mornings and possibly more detailed projects within the week. Read more about how this project got started here.**

I really enjoyed the first week of my daughters' summer break, and I hope they did, too. 

On day 1 (Monday): we made a summer calendar, which I blogged about on Monday. It was a labor of love, but it's something we'll use for years to come, so I think it was well worth the effort.

On day 2 (Tuesday): we went to the library. The summer reading program starts next week, and we'll be participating again this year.

On day 3 (Wednesday): we each made a summer manifesto. I had my kids write a list of things they'd like to do this summer. I'll be sure to add some to our summer calendar.

On day 4 (Thursday): we planted vegetable (and watermelon) seeds in mini cereal boxes to make starter plants. (I LOVE this project). I will be blogging more about this project next week. The idea came from Nikki.

On day 5 (Friday) we went out for ice cream. What kind of summer break would this be without frozen treats?
