Summer Weekly Plan for Kids
With teenagers in the house summer is a bit different than it ever used to be. The boys are so busy, they are not around a whole lot–they are off to work or summer school or basketball practice, it seems they just come and go.
For younger kids, though, summer weeks are much different. Putting together a Summer Weekly Plan for your kids helps alleviate a lot of headache! With a clear and concrete plan in place, you will avoid the, “What are we going to do today?” question.
Summer Weekly Plan
Creating a plan where the kids get to help pick what is on the schedule makes them feel like they have a part in deciding what to do, but yet there are parameters they have to stay within.
This simple Summer Weekly Plan for Kids is easy to stick with:
MONDAY CHILL: This allows mom to get caught up from the weekend and teaches the kids to entertain themselves. They might read a book, color in coloring books or maybe even get a little electronic time in!
TUESDAY CREATE: Let those minds use their creativity. Have them create something–it might be anything from an outdoor obstacle course to building a birdhouse. This fun list of 25 Summer Activities for Boys might come in handy on this day.
WEDNESDAY CRAFT: Kids can get their craft on and be super creative. Simple things like making a wind catcher or even a homemade tic-tac-toe game!
THURSDAY COOK: Are your kids new in the kitchen? Now’s the time to teach them kitchen basics. Kids that are comfortable in the kitchen can cook and bake away with just a little supervision. Let the kids start making dinner–it may be basic, but teaches them how to do it.
FRIDAY CARE: Spread kindness on this day! Bless a neighbor by mowing their lawn or bring a friend some homemade cookies or our favorite Applesauce Puffs. Anything goes!
At the beginning of the summer, have your kids brainstorm a list of things they would like to do. Get inspired from Pinterest or even this list of 111 Summer Fun Ideas for Kids. With just a little bit of planning your summer weeks with the kids will be a breeze!

I love this! My kids are teens as well. I wish I had these wonderful suggestions when my kiddos were younger.
Super cute! I can’t find the link to get it though. Any help?
It’s the hot pink link at the bottom. of the. post.
I can’t find the link either.
There isn’t a link on this page for the download.
I love this! I too have the tween/teens, and I’d love to see a calendar that is for mom but that the kids can write where they will be or what they have going on for the week. Just a thought. Thanks for all your creations that keep us organized.
I love this summer weekly plan worksheet. I did not see a link to print it. Could I please get a copy?
Hi Krista- I had to fix the button! You should be good now to grab the printable!
Love this, but there is no pink button to download. 🙁
Just fixed the button and sent your way!
