Lean into the simplicity of weekly & daily routines that will help keep your kids entertained, excited, and directed without tons of extra effort on your part.
The Kit Is Simple to Use
1. Set Goals & Create Rewards
Print out the goal sheets based on what items you want the child to work on over the summer.
Goals include Chores, Physical Activity, Reading & a Family Summer Bucket List.
2. Get Your Kids Tracking
Each time your child completes a goal, they color in the icon on the goal sheet.
For example, if you want your child to read for 20 minutes, then each day they read for 20 minutes, they can color in a book on the Reading Goals Printable.
If they get at least 5 colored in, they get their reward for that week.
3. Pick Your Theme
Each Sunday or Monday you can print off a new theme pack. Go in any order that you want. Print in color or greyscale. There are 9 weeks of themes that include:
4. Plan The Week
Each week you'll print off your schedule and fill in the blanks for various day-to-day activities like lunch and specific fun activities like library outings or community pool days.
Plus your kids will be able to pick/vote on the top 3 activities they want to participate in that week from the themed list of activity suggestions.
5. Use the Printables
When you need to fill in some time gaps in the day, put the printables out on the table and let the kids choose!
Each week has a unique set of printables to match the new theme.
All the printable activities are S.T.E.A.M based to keep your kids' brains active all summer long!

What People Are Saying...
"The One Happy Summer Week at Time Kit is exactly what I needed to make sure my boys don't spend all summer playing Minecraft. The balance of hands-on activities and recommended movies/shows are perfect. This is the only kit I've found that has activities my kids will love but doesn't make my non-crafty brain run screaming - thank you!"
- Sarah (Work at Home Mom of 2)
"I love the freedom of summer vacation but too many days without a plan is just not a good idea. This summer kit solves the problem perfectly. Tons of great ideas ready to go! We can use the theme as is or be inspired to come up with even more ideas of our own for a favorite theme. I especially love the Pen Pal Kit bonus. It walks my kids through the process, step by step, and gives writing prompts to help them come up with ideas of what to say in the letter. Easy peasy happy mail!"

One Happy Summer Week at a Time ($24.99 value)
FREE BONUS #1- Kids Pen Pal Success Pack ($4.99 value)
This kit is designed for kids ages pre-school to 5th grade.
Who is the kit made for?
Parents, grandparents, nannies, childcare workers, or babysitters. Pretty much anyone who will be spending at least a few hours per week with kids and needs a plan/schedule for keeping kids entertained.
What supplies do I need to be able to use this kit?
On a basic level, all you need is a computer or smartphone that has the ability to send a print job to your printer. You'll need printer ink (black & white is fine) & basic printer paper.
In some cases, if you decide to do the recipes or simple craft activities you'll have a list of just a few supplies to get that should cost less than $10.
In the Summer Survival Pack BONUS, I provide a list of everyday dollar store items you may want to keep around for times when you want to give your kids more fun activities outside of the themed week.
Do I have to print all the pages?
Nope. Each themed kit comes with pages that you can read/view as a full-color PDF (like recipes or activity instructions) without printing. Printable pages are made to be printer-friendly and most can be printed in greyscale.
What if I don't own a printer?
If you don't own a printer you can always take the PDF file to the library to be printed in grey-scale or down to your local office supply store to be printed in black & white. In both cases, you simply need the ability to email the files and someone at each place can help you navigate the print job.
How do I access the PDF's after I pay for them?
There are two options for accessing your kit and I'll break them down below.
Option #1 - Direct Email Access
This option is best for people who want quick access without needing to create a log in.
When you choose Direct Email Access you'll go through our secure Stripe checkout, you'll be providing an email address. As soon as your transaction is complete you'll get an email in your inbox within 5 minutes from, Your Product Order Download with an Order# in the title (see example below).
Inside the Product Order Download email, you will find a link, and that link will take you to a download page where you will find a download button for each PDF in the kit (see image below). *Be sure you save your email in case you need to go back and download the files again in the future.
Option #2 - Online School Access
If you hate navigating and finding emails, you can check out through my KimAndersonConsulting.Thinkfic.com school. That way your kit will be stored in an easy-to-navigate format in one spot that you can go back to over and over again without having to look through your emails.
This option will prompt you to set up a student account and login with my school (if you haven't already) before checking out but your kit will live on in the school and you can log in and access it anytime you want (see image below).
Why is this product in digital PDF form?
I make digital PDF products for several reasons:
1) Instant Access - no waiting & no shipping costs.
2) Flexibility- In the digital form, you aren't limited to a single copy so if your child makes a mistake you can just print a new copy. You can also print enough pages for the kids you have.
3) Lifetime Access- With a PDF format, you can re-use this planner each summer.
ABOUT THE CREATOR
Hi! I'm Kim Anderson!
I'm a mom of 3, an entrepreneur, and a traditionally published author.
I've always been a person who thrived in what I call organized chaos. In fact, at age 35, I was diagnosed with adult ADHD and owning that truth has brought a lot of clarity to my life.
Even if you aren't ADHD, but you thrive in organized chaos like me, my goal is to pass along the strategies that I've used to own my personality, conquer my life goals, manage my family life (without feeling the need to be perfect), and overcome my distractibility.
Everything I create, including this kit, is made to help you stress less, remember more, and feel in control of your time, money, and everyday life!

If you purchase the kit, use it for at least 14 days, and don't find it helpful, then we'll give you your money back! So what are you waiting for? Give it go!
