50 Summer Activities

Last year my nephews and I completed 100 Summer Activities. This year it was requested that we only do 50. I was surprised but it might end up being easier for me. Some of these activities are repeats from last year (they wanted to do them again). Since we only have 50 items this year, each of us will also have independent projects. We have not finalized our independent projects yet but they currently include: write comic, stop action Lego film, design board game, study chess strategies, and learn more Kanji (my project).
