Most moms I know need to get work done on a daily basis, whether it is building their business, organizing the household, or starting up a new side business. When kids come home for the summer, it is hard to juggle it all.
If you kids are school-age (kindergarten through high school) chances are that they can self entertain for at least part of the day. Sometimes they will naturally do this, and other times they may need some help. I have made up a huge list of activities that kids can do while you get your work done.
Every summer, I print out one list per child, and put it on their own clipboard. I sit down with the kids and explain the idea behind the list. Whenever the kids are bored or having trouble finding something to do, I refer then to their list. The kids can add their own ideas as well. The clipboards help because it is easier to keep track of than a loose piece of paper.
