25 Summer Activity Ideas for your Kids

With your kids out of school, do you ever hear “Mommy, Daddy, I’m bored”? When their adult years come, they’ll never have to worry about being bored again. But until then—how can you help entertain your kids on summer vacation? Here’s some ideas for your summer fun.

 

  • Have a picnic under a shady tree in the park.
  • Drive-In movie, when’s the last time you went to one of those?!
  • Make homemade ice cream.
  • Bike rides with the neighbor children!
  • Encourage lots of reading.
  • Take them to a waterpark, by the time you come home, they’ll be worn out!
  • Nature walks! Show them cool insects and teach them what kind of plants are on the trail!
  • Take them berry picking somewhere local.
  • Or, plant your own garden with the kids—with fruit or flowers!
  • Visit a local state park. Teach them the beauty of the world around them!
  • Do flashcards to refresh their memory on what they learned at school.
  • Sidewalk chalk!
  • Take them to a pottery painting place!
  • Set up a lemonade stand in the front yard (be sure to get a permit if needed!)
  • Build a fort in the living room.
  • Have a movie night incorporated with special treats such as popcorn, candy, sodapop, all the things you typically keep them away from!
  • Set up an area for them to play with shaving cream.
