Activities For Kids HUGE List of Things to Do!


The kiddos need something to do all Summer long….rather than sitting their bedroom vegged (is that a word?) out on the Xbox.  😉 With that being said, below is a HUGE list of tons of different Summer activities you can do with the kiddos all Summer long. Some are FREE and some are very inexpensive.

*At the very bottom you will see a list of simple things you can do too that you may not have thought of. Sometimes it’s easy to get distracted and forget about things like running through the sprinklers, camping in the backyard, etc). Bookmark this page or PIN it on Pinterest so you can easily reference it for ideas all Summer long.  😉

Enjoy and have fun…
