It’s August and the kiddos are getting antsy. Your summer days have been filled with pools, sunscreen and bug spray. Back-to-school is still far enough away, so how do you fill the remaining steamy days of “I’m bored” and “there’s nothing to do?”
Here are a few fun ideas of how to soak up some fun outside as summer comes to an end.
Water Balloon - Thrilling way to cool off! Play tag with the balloons or the traditional water balloon toss.
Lemonade Stand - What adult can resist the smile of a little one serving up their homemade cooler? A lemonade stand is not only fun, but a great way to teach kids the basics of math, business and good ol’ customer service.
Nature Scavenger Hunt - What better way to get kids off the couch and away from the video games then to help make them become one with nature? Make a fun, colorful list of items to find in categories like shapes, colors and textures.
Lawn Flicks - End your day by turning your backyard into an outdoor theatre. The neighbor kids will flock to your yard when you hook up a projector, hang a white sheet and pop some corn!
