Fun Summer Ideas

Now that school is out and summer is here, my kids want to be outside all the time. I love that they want to be outdoors, but sometimes I get bored being cooped up in our yard doing the same things over and over. So I have spent this week thinking of some ideas to make this summer fun. And, please share what you do to make the summer months fun and unique!

Fun Summer Ideas
  • Go on a nature walk (can play I spy or do some type of bingo card with animals/birds on it)
  • Go on a hike
  • Go to the park
  • Play at the pool or splash pad
  • Go on a picnic
  • Make mud pies (messy but loads of fun)
  • Run through the sprinklers
  • Blow bubbles
  • Play with sidewalk chalk
  • Explore local historic sites (you will be surprised what your community has to offer!!)
  • Go to the library and do reading time or other activities they offer
  • Visit a fair
  • Go to the zoo 
  • Build sand castles (you can do this in a volleyball court at a park)
  • Tie dye shirts
  • Water balloon fights
  • Build paper airplanes
  • Go camping or pitch a tent in the backyard
  • Plant a garden
  • Easter egg hunts (you can just use empty eggs but my kiddo loves hunting for them)
  • Service projects

And here are some great sites that include lots of activities for kids:
