Fun Summer Activities To Do With Your Children

June 05, 2017


The air is vibrating with excitement. The kids will be home from school and you are wondering what in the world you can do to keep them entertained. We have compiled a list of activities for you to consider throughout the season to be enjoyed by the whole family.

1 – Local Library

Most libraries have weekly events planned throughout the year and especially in the summer when everyone is off of school.  Look online for your Library’s list of fun and educational plans.  Also, don’t forget to sign them up for the summer reading program. Not only does this come with a few perks, but you will also find a list of recommended reading for all ages.

2 – Local Parks

Parks aren’t just for jungle gyms.  Many will orchestrate family-friendly fun for you as well.  And, most of the time they are FREE events.  Fireworks for the 4th of July.  Performances at the pavilion. Concerts on the lawn. Nature tours.  So cool!

3 – Local Town Centers

So many of these shopping centers offer family-friendly activities such as concerts and outdoor movie nights.  What a great way to enjoy an evening with your loved ones than a nice meal and community?

4 – Free or Deeply Discounted Movies

Did you know that over the summer, some movie theatres have children’s movies for $5 or less? Whaaaaaaaat???  I knooooooowww!  Companies like Regal have them on Tuesday mornings.  Every year they put out their list of films and the schedule for which it will be released throughout the summer break.

Kids have all of the fun 😒

5 – Visit the Farm

Most Farms are free to visitors.  Many offer activities that are free or low in cost, such as hayrides, arts and crafts, milking the cows, and so on.  Make an afternoon of it by packing a picnic lunch. Some farms offer strawberry and blueberry picking along with general stores where you can purchase local honey, jams, and baked good.

Last but not least, don’t forget to check around your town for free attractions.  You might be able to find smaller museums that have free entry.

Another idea would be to explore a nearby town or city.  Summertime is chock full of festivals with rides, music, games, and delicious foods.
