Celebrating Summer with Camp GoNoodle!

It’s SUMMER!  Woo-Hoo!

If you’re a teacher, like me, you are probably lovin’ the freedom and flexibility.  AHHHH.

However, if you are a momma, you know better than to think that summer is stress-free! #wewish

After about the third day of summer break, you probably heard this…
“Mom… I’m bored!” or “What can I do now?”

If you’re like me, you have a summer to-do list that’s a mile long…

Yet, you feel like summer is your chance to reclaim your Super-Mom status after having just spent the last 9 months of school in a guilt ridden too-much-school-work-to-do-to-be-an-epic-parent mode. #isitjustme #teachingisnevera40houraweekjob 

So just how do we do both?!   
You know… Getter’ Done and be Super-Mom.

Well… I have the answer!!!!

It’s  Camp GoNoodle!
Camp GoNoodle
Camp GoNoodle is a free online program for kids to stay active and be creative this summer! If you’re a teacher, then you probably already know and love GoNoodle for the classroom….. but now, as a PARENT, you’ll love this summer extension called…

Camp GoNoodle!

Note: If you are a teacher who already has a teacher/school GoNoodle account, you will need to go to this link to sign up to receive Camp GoNoodle emails:

{This is important because Camp emails are only being sent to parent accounts. GoNoodle knows lots of teachers use their school accounts at home – which is completely fine, they just need to make sure they get those teacher-parents in the Camp email list too!}

So who’s going to join us in celebrating summer with Camp GoNoodle???

Let’s kick this camp off with a summer celebration linky party!
