    Yours is the longest list I have seen on this subject. Way to go. I do a lot of the activities listed, but you have inspired me to try some different ones. The splatter paint fight, making milk carton boats and planting some sunflowers are ones that I will be surprising them with. Reply

    I would do the majority of this by myself, lol. Summer is a great time to just get all the fun out of your system before that next College semester begins. Reply
