It's Officially Summer!

Memorial Day is over and summer has officially started.  What are your plans? I found when my boys were little to get the most out of summer we needed to do some planning. Here are a few ideas to get you started---

*Many central Illinois towns have festivals---Old Settlers in Metamora, Washington's Cherry Festival, The Tremont Turkey Festival, The Olde English Faire at Jubilee State Park, Steamboat Days on the Peoria Riverfront are just a few local fairs.

*Love baseball?  Dozer Park in Peoria and the Corn Crib in Normal are a great way to see a game with family.

*Love music?  Check out local park districts. Many park districts offer free concerts during the summer.

*Pay it forward with this activity called Hidden Fortunes---http://metamoracommunityprek.blogspot.com/2010/06/hidden-fortunes.html

*Plan some water play in the yard for you children or the entire neighborhood---http://metamoracommunityprek.blogspot.com/2010/06/water-play.html

That should get you and your child started on some summer fun.  More ideas soon!
