summer activity. laser beam trap. free.

You know it’s summer when you feel like you are constantly coming up with new and exciting activities for your kiddos. Our first summer checklist item to tackle that problem? Our summer bucket list. You can find a {free} printable summer bucket list here, if you missed it earlier.


This summer, I was all about finding as many free {or close to free} activities as possible. One of the items on our bucket list was creating a message using a secret code. Well, we accomplished that bucket item list last week and then decided to set a trap for the daddy to find when he got home from work.

If you follow along with me on Instagram you saw a quick snapshot of our sneaky secret trap. It was one of those spur of the moment things that turned out to be a total hit. Love those.

The next day we decided to try building some more secret traps, but with a twist. With two energetic {that’s the polite way to say it} boys this mama is always looking for crazy things to do that won’t leave the house in total shambles. But, I must admit that I may have had even more fun. I was laughing so hard I was crying. Seriously, give it a try. You just might love it more than your little ones too.

Laser Beam Activity

A super, simple task that requires a little bit of flexibility and a skein of yarn. Say what? That’s it?

Your task? String that yarn all over the place and make it as tricky as possible. This task kept my silly kids and myself busy for at least 45 minutes. String. Loop. Have some fun.

My little ninjas decided that their trap was made of laser beams. After awhile, we started hiding treasures around the traps and they utilized their sneaky moves to find the golden gems. Just think of the endless possibilities.

A twist on your traditional summer activity that may just make your little ones giggle as much as mine. Give it a try.

try. enjoy. share.
