Melissa Fenton, a mother of four boys, has created a list of ten amazing ways to kick it old school this summer and still have the best time ever.
Here are a few of our faves:
4. Send them to the movies for the entire day. I will drop you off at around 11 and pick you up for dinner. It’s real simple. You sneak from one theater to the next. Nobody cares.And now you’re hooked, right? See the rest of the list over on Huffington Post Parents.
6. Make stuff, like from stuff you find. No trips to Hobby Lobby for pre-cut, pre-stuck, pre-fabricated crafts. Find crap in the garage and assemble it into something you can play with. No, you can’t Google how to do it. Ropes are fun.
9. Build a fort in the backyard. No, I am not gonna help. Yes, you can use the $125 Pottery Barn Kids duvet cover from your bed. I don’t care anymore. Making a memory trumps 400 thread count cotton.
