Summer is around the corner, and kids everywhere are excited for fun in the sun. While they may love being off every day, parents find themselves with quite a handful if they don’t have any activities planned.
Here are some fun activities to keep you and your kiddos busy and productive throughout the summer months.
Keeping Kids Active in Summer
Few things are better for young children than getting their energy out. Enjoy these active, outdoor activities throughout the summer months, no matter where you live!
- Go for a nature walk: Whether you live in the city or on a farm, nature is all around us. Find the local trees and wildlife in your area and talk about them with your kids while exploring the neighborhood.
- Create a scavenger hunt: There are plenty of scavenger hunts online, or you can create your own and watch your kids become detectives in their own backyard.
- Refresh in the nearest pool, lake, or ocean: There’s nothing like a fresh dip to escape the summer heat. Chances are you have a community pool, lake, river, or sea within driving distance to enjoy.
- Check out a local farm: Many local farms have summer camps or events for kids. You could also enjoy the weather and go strawberry, blueberry, or tomato picking.
- Fly a kite
- Play hide and seek
- Hula Hoop
- Have a day at the park: Create a picnic, bring a ball, and let your kids live it up on the park’s playgrounds.
Indoor Summer Activities for Kids
