While it’s true that the weather in summers offers infinite possibilities, sometimes all the choice feels overwhelming. When you’ve started to tire of playgrounds and splash pads, and the same routine everyday, we hope this post will help. Here are some activities to help beat the summer boredom blues.
Finger painting – All kids love finger painting, and it’s an activity perfectly suited to the outdoors. Spend a few dollars on supplies at the dollar store for an afternoon of creative fun. The best part is, you can just hose all the mess down afterward, kids included!
Make a backyard fort – Get creative here–lawn furniture and clothes lines can make excellent hangers for the “walls” (i.e. blankets).
Go on a tree hunt – A perfect activity for a nature-loving kid. Find a tree encyclopedia in your local library, or get a tree identifying app on your phone. Go for a walk and identify trees in your neighbourhood.
Check out your local library – Many local library systems around the country offer interesting programs throughout the summer, and usually at no cost. Events like puppet shows, crafting and more are often happening.
Do some summer learning – Kids may moan about school sometimes, but parents know, deep down, their children thrive on the stimulation and routine. Summer learning at Scholars might be just what your kids need to keep their brains active and engaged through the summer months.
