What is your daily schedule with your children during the summer?

I have a 5 1/2 year old and a 9 month old. We are fairly structured with preschool/naps/outings/etc during the school year. I tend to fall out of it during the summer months and it drives me crazy. Plus my 5 yr old wakes up asking, “What are we going to do today?” or “I want to do something fun today.” or “Where are we going today?”. I want some predictability and some fun things in place. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!!

    Some weeks I have swimming lessons every morning, others look more like this

    Monday Do laundry, learn cleaning jobs around the house
    Tuesday Go swimming
    Wednesday Go to the library, make popsicles or some other fun kid recipe
    Thursday Go to the park with moms group
    Friday Invite a friend over to make a craft

    I make the mornings fun and then they have to get creative in the afternoon while baby gets her long nap. I have two older, but if I only had one, I’d probably set up lots more playdates.
    I like to do theme days too. Me and my kids are doing all the spanish color days and some other spanish days, we are also doing some games to learn music notes and plunk out songs on the piano. My daughter does an art project a day and my son builds a city everyday out of blocks, legos, constructs, train tracks, milk cartons, cereal boxes, blankets, chairs, books, cds, etc.
    Its also good to check the newspaper for all the free summer activities going on. Libraries, especially, do a lot of free stuff for kids in the summer.
