I realized that I forgot to publish my post last Sunday about Camping Week! That will be coming up shortly. We are kicking off Around the World week tomorrow by celebrating the United States of America. Hopefully the rain will hold out and we will be able to celebrate the fourth with some BBQ and fireworks.

Links to all of our crafts, summer recipes, and printable are pinned on my Summer Theme week Pinterest board!

This week we are going to tour seven different countries. For each country we will learn about their flag, taste some food, and learn a few words in their native language. I found this great passport that I printed off for the kids!
