Accountable Kids Lotto

I have an Accountable kids set. We used it once. You just pay shipping.

To enter tell me your favorite summer activity with your kids. The cheaper the better. I will close this June 1st.

Re: Accountable Kids Lotto

My kids love to go to the park. They prefer the Discovery park, but I prefer one that has lots of shade trees for me and my baby to sit under while they play.

They also love picnics! Nothing spruces up a meal like eating it outside on a blanket!

Re: Accountable Kids Lotto

Oh I would love to enter this lotto.

I do not have a lot of ideas I didnt do much last year with ds but this year we are:
Making water exploration tray and sand bins to play in
going on picnics in parks for free
we also watch for local events and fairs to go to or the days when museums ect have special events and free entry
He also loves to play with bubbles so we may do some bubble activities

Re: Accountable Kids Lotto

Oh I would LOVE to enter this lotto!!! I have been drooling over these for several years at homeschool conventions and cannot bring myself to buy one for each kid. they are pricey!

Summertime activities...

plastic tarp on the lawn with dish soap and sprinklers :-)
-Swim team (not so cheap but lots of fun)
-Bike rides to the park with picnic dinner in the back of the baby trailer
-messy stuff that I would never allow in the house (finger painting, science projects that blow up, We hang a hose sprinkler on the jungle gym to make a "water slide")
-Glow sticks in balloons for back yard fun at night
-LOTS of board games :-)


What are the ages of your kids? I might have more ideas depending on their ages :-)

My kids love going on treasure hunts. Make a list of objects, animals, insects, etc... Take it to the backyard or park and hunt them down. You can make everything letter related, All A's etc.. for practicing ABCs.

Also, we enjoy water parks, we have a couple here connected with regular play parks. Free and Cool!

Not free but highly recommended, get a zoo pass, if you have a local zoo. We can go and play all day, family oriented, laid back, the kids never get tired of going. Pack your own lunch, food prices are high. Save $ for ice cream

Re: Accountable Kids Lotto

My fav is taking them to the local splash park. It's free and there's also a playground there too. We take a picnic lunch and lots of drinks and even bring the pack and play for the baby so he can take a comfortable nap while we're there, in the shade.

My kids and I also enjoy spending time in the vegetable garden; pulling weeds, watering, planting, harvesting...they LOVE it! It's a great opportunity to teach them about where food comes from, how it's grown, what it does for our bodies and how to care for them.

Thanks for the awesome lotto Mama!!!

Re: Accountable Kids Lotto

Would love love love to enter!
Our favorite family activity in the summer is to go to the waterfront farmers market. It is a great place to hear free local music, see art, learn about different colors, numbers, fruits and veggies, spend quality time with our family and get the grocery shopping done!

This would be wonderful to have!

We love going to the library. He picks out 15 books at a time and still wants more!

This year, we plan on taking him camping, for his first time!

Sprinklers, water balloon "fights", slip and slide, etc...he loves them!

Tie dye, painting, sidewalk chalk, bike riding, park/playground, children's museum, science museum, dog park (he loves other dogs), put a note in a balloon to a pinpal and release it, scavenger hunts, make your own puppets out of socks, make your own musical instruments, and he loves being me "sous chef"!!!
