It’s summer time; exciting right! Now that school is out, you have to think of ways to keep those youngsters out of trouble and entertained for the next two months. What are you going to do?
Here are some fun ways to keep kids entertained this summer and keep your sanity:
Search out Free Events in your City: Most cities have a number of free events such as a movie in the park day, parades, and festivals. You can usually find these free things in your local paper, at the library, or in city newsletters.
Take Advantage of Museum Free Days: Most museums have a free day one day of the month. If you don’t have museums in your city call around to nearby museums and ask about their free day. This is a great opportunity to get your kids out of the house and keep them learning.
Get out Soap: For a slippery good time, get out the soap. Use a tarp or even your twister game and add soap and water on it for a homemade slip-n-slide. Or, actually, try to play a slippery game of twister.
Outside Toys: But my all time favorite is to grab the outside toys and head out to the yard or even the park. We have even had water fights to help cool off on those scorching hot days, but just check out everything you can get and have it on hand for a fun filled day when boredom strikes.
Plan Science Experiments: Did you know that your kids can lose up to 2 months of knowledge over the summer? Just because school out doesn’t mean your kids can’t keep learning. Plan fun science experiments such as making flubber, an erupting volcano, a tornado, or a real snowflake. Science provides your child with vocabulary skills, measuring skills, and prediction making skills. It only takes one science activity a week to help your child retain the knowledge they learned in school.
Plan Summer Friend Days: Plan a few days out of the month when your kids can invite a friend to come over for food, games, and fun. If you have enough kids, you can go to the park for a baseball game, basketball game, or relay race. Get the kids excited and outside using all their energy.
When kids get bored, they start to get into trouble and can make any parent feel insane. Keep your kids busy this summer and keep your sanity.
