Your 2014 Summer Fun Calendar!

SummerCalendar_Icon4Summer vacation is finally upon us! If you’re looking for ways to engage and entertain your child all summer long, we’d like to offer our help: our Summer Fun Calendar!

Much like our 2013 Summer Calendar, we’re bringing you loads of ideas for creative fun, educational activities, crafts, family travel tips – plus a special “Taking Care of You” feature each Thursday – all from your favorite bloggers! This week-by-week resource will be neatly organized into a calendar you can print. To make our calendar even more helpful to you, each day contains a live link to the blog post of the day; just click on the calendar below, click on a daily link, and you’ll be taken right to the featured post!

Here’s how our Summer Calendar works:

–  Each week we’ll release a new selection of fun activities, helpful tips and more!
–  We’ll  help you remember and celebrate important dates and holidays                        (like Father’s Day, of course)!


We hope you’ll join in on the fun!

STAY TUNED To learn more about the series, and get links to every weekly calendar.

You can find even more terrific ideas on our Pinterest Summer Fun board! Be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page throughout summer, for fun events, giveaways and more!

We’d really love to see how your family is having fun this summer! You can share your fabulous summer photos with us by using the hashtag #MDSummerFun on Twitter or Instagram. We’ll follow along, and share some of your awesome photos and tips with our community!

The best piece of  summer advice we can offer is this: Don’t stress!  Summer can be a magical time for children as they explore the incredible world outdoors, develop their blossoming imagination and enjoy every moment of being a kid! We simply hope that our ideas can give you some inspiration, when needed, to help you and your child experience some special moments of creative play, every day (with a little bit of learning along the way).

We look forward to spending the summer with you and your family!
