#6. Have a Big Toy Clear Out
Take 3 boxes or bags (Keep, Donate, Not Sure) and have a big toy sort out. You might get a bit of resistance at first but you will find that they will get into it and get interested in toys they haven’t seen or played with for a while. (You can always sort out the Not Sure box later…)
#7. Hold a Scavenger Hunt
Organise a scavenger hunt around your back yard or nearby woods or forest with a nature scavenger hunt or even going round the neighbourhood hunting for bugs or an indoor hunt if the weather isn’t so great.
#8. Write a Summer Diary
Make a summer diary, or blog, or newsletter about all the things the family did this summer holiday. Illustrate with drawings or photos you took during the summer.
#9. Back to School Shopping
If you haven’t been super organised already then hit the shops for the final back to school organising. Take a break from shopping and enjoy lunch together with a spot of people watching.
#10. Hold a Family Game Night
