Recipes That Won't Heat Up the Kitchen
Another secret to a successful summer is being able to cook for the kids without heating up the kitchen and ultimately, the whole house. Here is a day off my summer menu that requires no oven!
Breakfast: Fruit and Yogurt Parfait, milk
Snack: Peanut Butter Power Balls
Lunch: Chicken and Noodles, mandarin oranges, baby carrots, milk
Snack: Apple Nachos

Free Daycare Forms: Attendance Records
Now available with Parent Signatures Required.
The state of Minnesota, where I live, still does not require me to get the parents' signatures on my attendance records, but I know many states do.
I can now provide you with forms that have a place for the parents to sign.
Find the new forms here: Attendance Records
Keep the Kids Busy Outside
I've recently added some new ideas to the Outdoor Games page on DaycareAnswers.com. My kids' favorite this summer is "What Time Is It, Mr. Crocodile?" Sometimes I play the game with them and sometimes I sit back and enjoy watching them play by themselves.

I'm a really, really excited to announce that a dream of mine is coming true!
I'm a really, really excited to announce that a dream of mine is coming true! I will soon be opening a daycare forum. This will be a place where we can meet up and discuss everything about daycare. It will be even better than the Daycare Provider Facebook Group because:
- it will be more private.
- it will be easier to find things that were posted earlier.
- you will be able to read only the things that interest you.
I will keep you up-to-date on the forum in both the Facebook Daycare Provider Group and on DaycareAnswers Business Page. Join the group or "Like" the page in order to get the updates.
If you enjoyed this issue of DaycareAnswers Newsletter and would like to take a look at previous month's newsletters, go to Newsletter Back Issues.
I'd also appreciate if you'd share this newsletter with a friend or a fellow daycare provider. Send them this link so they can sign up too!
