Six Fun Summer Activities for Kids

Posted by Kari Spikkeland

My children have roughly 6 weeks left of summer. Last week we finally reached the tipping point where they began to thrive in our unstructured days. And, they actually started sleeping in.

We've had a good routine of swimming, biking, sprinkler fun, sidewalk chalk (oh the mess!), reading, and free play going on from week to week. But I still have a few more summer activities up my sleeve:

1. Back Yard Camping - I can hear the squeals of glee even as I type. 

2. Blueberry picking. Our bushes are heavy with ripe berries.

3. Kitchen experiment involving a microwave and a bar of soap. I rarely suggest such messy activities!

4. A water-blob, in the back yard. Can you imagine adding a little soap from the above activity?? (wink)

5. Picnic with friends. I hope you are already enjoying meals with friends this summer!

6. Popsicle stick crafts. We'll also attempt to create a bridge.  

If you have babies and toddlers in the house, here are two fun activities you can do with them during these long days of summer.
