One of the fun things I did for my daughter this summer to keep track of our summer fun was create a simple summer activity passport for her! I found the passport itself on Heather Carson’s blog. Then I made our own set of “stamps” to put in it. I wanted specific images of things we might do. I wanted to encourage her to find ways to tie the images in to our summer activities to keep track of the fun we do have.
I knew we would not get to all of the images I printed off. To my surprise, though, my daughter found ways to add in so many of them herself!
“We saw a train yesterday!” she’d say, so we added that.
“I have a piggie bank!” she’d add another day.
As a result, she was extra excited about the passport and the things that were filling the pages. She loves to go through and look at the pictures and remember the fun times she’s had with friends and family this summer and the fun things she’s seen and experienced!
Here are some the images included. None of the summer activity stamps have words on them, so you can write what you want to remember it. You can even consider the stamps as a summer activities ideas list. How can your kids incorporate all of them into their summer? For example, the piggy bank could mean earn money, or play the board game Payday with your siblings.
- zebra in a cage
- tent and fire
- caught fish
- a boat, a car, and a train
- music notes
- a hoe with a flower
- ice cream cone
- girl blowing bubbles
- various building, such as restaurants and a movie theater
And this is not all! There are a dozen more different stamps to give you great summer activity ideas or to track those you do in your own summer activities stamps booklet or passport. Make a summer passport to keep track of your activities! Strawberry and Raisin have sure enjoyed the project.
How do you journal your summer fun?
