How to Make the Most Out of Your Summer

Make the Most of Your Summer - The Cozy Nook

It’s here…

The moment you’ve all been waiting for…


Many of us can’t wait for summer, and once it gets here, it seems to fly by faster than Superman!

Benjamin Franklin said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”

Sure, we can enjoy summer without planning, and our summers probably won’t “fail”. However, how much better can our summers be if we put some thought into this special season?

Have you made a bucket list
for your family yet?

Think about some things you would like to experience as a family.

*Bike rides
*Soft-serve ice cream cones
*Disc golf
*Picnics and parks

Have you made a project list?

Think about seasonal chores that need to be done as well as projects that have been hanging over your head for a while.

*Wash the windows
*Deep clean your car
*Clean out the closets
*Put a fresh coat of paint on some walls

Have you made goals for your children?

Think about the activities with which you would like your children to be involved and how you would like to see their time spent.

Your children will have a lot of extra time, and they can use that time to sharpen and hone their skills and interests.

Have you made a rough
schedule for your days?

Even in the summer, we function well on routine.

Keeping an approximate bed time, wake time, and structure can help our families be productive AND have fun!

Yes, summer is here!

Let’s live it to the fullest!


  1. I am still working on our lists, and we are close to finding a good Summer routine. The first 2 weeks with no routine didn't go well at all!

    1. Best wishes as you make your routine and enjoy your summer! :-)
