Summer means as parents, you might be trying to fill your kids’ days with something more substantial than TV. Give these fun summer activities a try.
Get the whole family moving and take your dog to a park. Just check the pavement first. If it’s too hot to keep your hand on for 7 seconds, it’s too hot for your pup.
Do you need a moment to breathe? Try these kid-friendly yoga moves and do it together.
Hit the road for a classic summer road trip, just make sure your kids’ car seats are in safely. Road trips are a great time to introduce your kids to new music or audiobooks and see new places.
Make learning or getting active fun for your kids. Do they hate reading? Give graphic novels or comics a try. Do they love video games? Try these active Wii games.
Museums, aquariums, and zoos are a great way to make learning fun, and hands-on children’s museums are more available than ever. Find one now.
Never underestimate the power of make-believe and dress-up, which let your kids explore complex subjects and build creativity.
