Summertime and kids….

So summer is fast approaching and that means your kids will no longer be in school. So the question comes up…what do with those energetic little people all summer long. We certainly don’t want them cooped up inside watching television, playing video games, and listening to their iPods. But, summer camps can also be extremely expensive, especially if you do more than one of them and have more than one child. So what are some free or inexpensive things you can do with your kids this summer to keep them active and engaged and not driving you crazy!

First, I found this website that has 120 different free things to do with your kids that you should definitely check out.  http://www.mrfreestuff.com/120-free-things-to-do-with-kids-this-summer/

Next, check your local library. They often have summer reading programs that include activities and crafts. You can also research the area where you live…I know where I live some places have dollar movie days, or discounted days at the zoo.

Are you friends with other people with children? Take turns watching them or taking them to the park or the pool so the other parent can have a day to relax kid free.

A great place to check out ideas for the summer…PINTEREST! You can find just about anything on Pinterest, so I would highly recommend searching some kid friendly summer activities on there while you are browsing boards.

Hope this helps you and your children have a fun, filled summer!Image
