Summer Fun BoxSchool is almost out! A great surprise gift idea for elementary-aged children, grandchildren, or nieces and nephews is a 'Summer of Fun' surprise package. Try to think of all the things you loved as a child. Your grandchild, child or niece/nephew will probably have a little of you in them. I did this last summer and my granddaughter was absolutely delighted!

Fill the box with the following:

This gift will not cost you tons (you can get a lot of the things at your local dollar store), but a surprise (for no reason) summer fun box, will bring hours of delight to the young ones. :)

Have fun!

Living on a tight budget is hard. We try to make it easier by finding cheap or free things to do with our boys. They are age 5 and 3. I have found all kinds of free museums and parks to explore.

If you make gatorade pops for the summer and spring, it will be really good for when the kids come in from a day of activity. Ice cubes are nice too for cups of gatorade so that it won't be diluted down.

I know in Virginia, we have an awesome program called Hands On Greater Richmond. It is a volunteer database full of opportunities for kids and adults to give their time, learn something new, meet new people and to earn volunteer credit hours towards their graduation goals!
