Last Updated on September 19, 2021.

It’s that time of the year again! The kids are out of school and summer is in full swing. It can be hard to keep up with your children’s schedules when they’re not in school all day, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Use our free printable summer schedule for kids as a starting point for building your own custom plan to make sure your kids stay busy!

Why do you need a summer schedule?

Kids need a schedule to stay on track! Kids do better when they know what’s coming up next. The best way to do this is to print a schedule. Schedules are great for:

  • keeping kids active and healthy in the summertime when they might be less active.
  • making sure kids are doing their chores and responsibilities.
  • ensuring kids have a variety of activities to find what interests them.
  • making sure you don’t forget anything!

Why keeping it simple is best

If you try to keep a complicated schedule, there’s a good chance you’ll abandon the endeavor after a few days or weeks. Simple is better because it’s easy to maintain. You don’t want to create a situation where you have no plan for the summer!
