Think It Thursday: 10 Things To Do With Your Kids This Summer

Looking for some fun things to do with your kids this summer to keep them from being bored (& you sane)? Here's 10 things I plan on doing with mine. (In no particular order.)

1. Summer Reading - Lots of local libraries have a Summer Reading Program for elementary aged children, as well as preschool story times. 

2. Get Crafty - Pinterest is a great place to find ideas for any age!

3. Camp Out - You don't have to go to a campground, or even outside. Pop up a tent in the living room & stay up past bedtime.

4. Festivals & Fairs - There's always something going on it seems. And with plenty of games, rides, shows & food!

5. Explore Nature - We have a local Wilderness Center with plenty of trails. We always look for the perfect rock or something else along the way.

6. Party! - Have a "Just Because" party, just because you want to. You can pick a theme, do potluck or even cater, it's all up to you.

7. Mini Road Trip - Sometimes it's just nice to drive an hour (or so) away & play tourist. Perfect for getting some candid photos with a new background.

8. Farmers Markets - This is a family fave! The kids like to help pick out the produce & some beautiful flowers (among other things).

9. Just Keep Swimming - Yea, this is pretty self explanatory (LOL).

10. Grow a Garden - You don't have to have a huge vegetable garden, a few flowers will do. But this is a great way to teach responsibility while learning how things grow.
