Summer is Cancelled, Now What? Ideas for Ages 3-12 with Mia St.Clair & Crystal Woodman Miller

What do we do with kids who are too young to entertain themselves for days at a time but too big to be carried around in a backpack all day? Especially when a global pandemic causes most large group (or any sized group) gatherings to be cancelled for the summer? Well, we brought in the experts for you: Mia St. Clair and Crystal Miller are both moms of littles and they’ve got the ideas.

Let’s talk practical when it comes to kids. We’ve got the everyday, the special, the food, and the crafty. From theme dinners to water play (when the pools are closed) Alex, Krista, Crystal, and Mia all chime in on this mom-to-mom conversation. When we say The Open Door Sisterhood is part practical, part inspirational, this is a practical-heavy episode.

We see you moms. We know you have some unexpected bumps this summer due to COVID-19. We’re here to give a few ideas that might spur more ideas that meet your family’s needs perfectly. So don’t delay, press play, and then give us your best summer tips and hacks in the comments below.
