My kids recently got out of school for the summer, and wouldn’t you know that the VERY NEXT DAY I heard my youngest son say to me “Mom, I’m bored!” This makes me very upset. I feel like I have become the “activity director” for the summer.
I don’t get it. They want to get out of school, and complain about it all year long, then they are out for ONE day- and they don’t now what to do!? So, I know other people out there have the same issues, so I am here to help you too.
In order to save my sanity, I need a variety of activities to entertain them with. However, I don’t want to break the bank, either. So, here are my ideas for summer fun with the kids!
1. Have a picnic. There is just something fun about eating outside with the kids. They really enjoy it, and it gets them outside too! If you have a picnic table you can use that, or if you just want to spread out a blanket on the grass, just go outside and enjoy the weather together!
