One thing that I've tried this summer,
that has worked fairly well with the kids
 is doing something called "Canteen".

When I went to girls camp as a youth, our camp did canteen in the afternoons.
From what I remember, it was kind of a quiet time to do want we wanted.
They always started it with a snack.

Why they called it canteen, I don't know.

I got a bunch of snacks like this from Costco.
(Snacks I don't usually get)

I yell Canteen in the afternoon to the kids.
They come pick out a snack in the kitchen.

Then, we go out to the backyard, or a cool place in the house.
We eat our snack.
We read our scripture story for the day,
and read a chapter or two from a book we are reading.
