May is finally here and you know what they say: April showers brings May flowers. It just seems like this year is moving along quite quickly. Pretty soon, before you know it, the kiddos will be out for school. Well, now that my kiddos are older, I have more fun things that I can do that can also help me out around the house. There are tons of fun things that you can do with them.
If your kids are younger, no worries, I will have some for you as well. I believe the summer months are for you to get closer with your family and have family trips and vacations. Even if you are grandparents and raising your grandkids, you can still enjoy them.
5 Fun things Kids Can do during the summer
- Travel to a city that you have not visited. It’s nothing like exploring a new town and all the beautiful sceneries. Get out and smell the roses and experience something different.
- Visit local museums. Now this can be both educational and fun. This is something that me and my kids love to do. We love learning new and exciting things.
- Have family picnics. If you have younger kids, taking them to the park can be very fun. Let them swing and have all kinds of exercises while exploring new rides. If your kids are older, they could grab some subway and eat while watching their younger siblings. My kids and I love grabbing sub sandwiches or ones that I made from home and spread a blanket on the ground, and tell jokes and have fun mingling with each other.
- Everybody go bike riding. This summer, I’m actually thinking of getting all of us a bike and go riding in the evenings. (FYI, I have not written a bike since I was in the 4th grade lol)
- Get them into a summer program. If you have a local YMCA or any educational or fun kids group, allow them to be active in that. It’s a great way to keep them involved within the community.
I hope these few tips helps you to prepare for the upcoming summer months. What kinds of fun things do you do with your kiddos during the summer? Leave me a comment below:
