Happy Sunday Everyone! Christie here with your Sunday Sill Summer Fun post. Today we are going to have a race, a balloon noodle race. My boys had fun playing this game I made up for them. Since I have being trying to find something fun for them to do outside each week I had the supplies on hand and thought this would be a fun game to play.
- balloons (regular party size)
- pool noodles
- set up a starting line and a finish line (we used extra pool noodles)
- blow up 1 balloon per racer
- the player have to race from the starting line to the finish line without popping their balloon, if balloon pops they have to go back to the starting line and blow up another balloon and start over.
- 1st one to the finish line without popping their balloon wins

Hello All! Christie here today with your Sunday Silly Summer Fun post for today. It has been terribly hot here this past week. We can’t spend a lot of time outside unless we play in the water. I found these water balloon piñatas on Pinterest. It was so much fun. The balloons are harder to pop than one would think. And if the kid hit the balloon at a good spot it would get us all wet.
- Regular Size Balloons (mine are fun shapes I found at the Dollar Tree Store)
- Bat or Stick
- Something to hang your Balloons from (we used a clothes line)
- Fill up your balloons with water as big as you can
- Hang balloons from the clothes line or what ever you might have high enough so all the kids are able to hit them.
- Let the kids hit the balloons and make sure the others stand back so they don’t get hit with the bat

Hello, Christie here with your Silly Summer Fun Post for today. I found a fun game to play with the kids in Disney Family Fun Magazine. If you have kids this is a must have magazine or luckily you can look all the articles up online too. So today we are going to play Squash the Sharks. So much fun, my kids laughed the entire time.
- party size balloons
- kiddie pool
- permanent markers (optional)
- Fill up pool
- Blow up balloons
- Draw shark faces on balloons (optional) My kids didn’t want to wait for the faces, but if you have ones that will wait or want to help it is a fun part you can do with them while you wait on the pool to fill up.
- Now the fun begins, give each child a balloon and let them sit on it in the water. Child who squashes the most sharks wins.
Remember there will be a lot of slipping and sliding, so don’t put to many kids in the same pool. It is hard to squash those sharks, but it is loads of fun.
Hi everyone! Cammi here for Monday’s Meal recipe. I love trifle. They are so pretty, and delicious. Today I’m sharing a recipe for a Summer Berry Trifle. Thank you Family Fun for sharing this delicious recipe!
Summer Berry Trifle
- 1 package (3.4-ounce) instant vanilla pudding
- 4 cups fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries), washed and hulled, plus extra for garnish
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 24 to 36 ladyfingers
- To make the fillings, prepare the pudding according to the package directions and chill it.
- Slice the strawberries, if you’re using them, then toss all of the berries with the lemon juice and the 1/4 cup of sugar. Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the berries to release their juices.
- In a medium mixing bowl, whip the cream, vanilla extract, and remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar until soft peaks form. Set aside.
- To make the layers, set a layer of ladyfingers (around 7 or 8) on the bottom of a large, clear serving bowl (ours was 4 quarts). Top with the berries with half of the pudding.
- Add another layer of ladyfingers, another third of the berries and juice, and the rest of the pudding. Add a final layer of ladyfingers and berries. Top with the whipped cream and a berry garnish.
- Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. Serves 8 to 10.
