Summer is here!! Yay! I love having the kids around more. I also enjoy the summer break because of the more relaxed schedule and fun outings we can do. Today, I share five simple ideas for Summer Fun.
Take your kids bowling! A couple of years ago, I found a program that provides free bowling passes. It’s called Kids Bowl Free. After signing up and registering your children, you will receive coupons for a free game to a bowling alley in your area. Check it out at www.kidsbowlfree.com. Our kids love to go bowling so I am excited to use this program!
Playgrounds are everywhere! Go on a playground hop this summer. Make a list of all the playgrounds in your area. Don’t forget to add in the school playgrounds. Plan out which playgrounds you will visit this summer. Go once a week, or several times a week. If your kids are old enough, involve them in the planning too.
My kids love to have their friends over to play. It can be challenging to coordinate schedules sometimes. This summer, I thought it would be fun to have one morning a week or every other week designated for friends play time. We call it Friend Friday. Each of my kids will invite on a friend over for a couple of hours in the morning. It has been fun so far!
Sign up for a Summer Reading Program! Most public libraries have a Reading Program which is a great way to motivate your kids to read. It is also fun to spend time at the library. Check into your Library’s Summer Program.
Take a trip to the beach! Depending on where you live, you can head to a smaller beach or a bigger one. My kids love going to the beach so we may take a day trip to a beach in Michigan. If you live where beaches aren’t close by, find a community pool or plan a playdate with a friend who owns a pool.
Hopefully, these five ideas are helpful as you think through your summer. What are some other activities you have done or are planning to do this summer? I would love to hear about it. Please comment below. Thank you!
This summer Olivia and I went bowling one day with my grandmother, cousins and friends. And I must admit, I had lots of fun. I’ve never been one to say let’s go bowling, but bowling with my 2 1/2 year old has changed my perspective of bowling. I had such a wonderful time bowling with her. Also, my grandmother and very good friend uses the “kids bowl for free” program. I’m glad you mentioned this section in your blog!
I am so glad you enjoyed bowling! It is a fun activity to do with kids.:)
