Summer Idea for the Kids

by Michele | August 13th, 2008 | Elementary

“I’m bored!”

Are those typical words in your house?  At this point in the summer, it seems likely that many households are resounding with that same sentence.  Although the kids won’t admit to wishing that school would start soon, they have become bored with the laziness of summer.

To help solve the problem of boredom, here are some suggestions for family fun:

  • Pick fruits at a pick-your-own farm, and then create some recipes with them.
  • Go to a minor league baseball game.  Our sister site, Buzzer Eagle, highlights all of the benefits.
  • If it’s a rainy day, bake cookies, then watch a holiday movie with warm cookies and cocoa.
  • Attend a craft fair, allotting each child a set amount of money to buy a souvenir.  Read about our adventure on Good Life Review.

What do you do to cure the end-of-summer blahs?  Add a comment with your ideas.
