  1. Thank you so much for the great ideas to look forward to trying this summer! I can’t wait!

  2. I love this, I know it’s from last year but I hope would love for you to come and share it on my first link party ” Summer Bucket List Ideas” http://www.missinformationblog.com/2012/05/summer-bucket-list.htm

    Im looking for the instructions for how to do the mason jars. When I click on the link it just takes me to the picture. Do they just use wire for the handles? Do they drill holes in the top to attach the handles? Where are you all finding the blues mason jars?

  4. I am hooked again. Makes me want to do all those things. I love everything you posted. It’s aready summer in my country. They are really great for summer and I will definitely make some snow cones. Thanks so much for the great ideas.

  5. I have been looking at all my books and all over the internet to create a list of 100 things I can do/make with my kids this summer (and then subsequently blog about on "heaps of laundry"). There are so many amazing ideas out there. I LOVE this Mason jar one. So pretty.The bunting is adorable. I had a not so pretty and only on a TV backyard movie party with friends years ago and we watched Goonies. It was such a fun night! Those bubbles are amazing and I just got my kiddos library cards, so might need to make some bag so they have permanent homes. I have visited your site many times from links on other sites. Perhaps I should cave in and add you to my reader! 😉 Thanks for sharing your ideas and your finds.

  6. The Mommy Chronicles says:

    One word for all these projects: love!

  7. The mason jar lanterns and stepping stones would sure make the garden looklike a fairy-land. Thanks for the great ideas!

  8. What a great resource! Bookmarked this page and have started my list of fun things to do for my kiddos. (Now if I could just find a great vintage lunch box like your thrift store find …)

  9. Jessica Lauren says:
