Are you looking for FREEways to keep your kids busy this summer. Here are some great ideas that may help you through these long, hot summer months.
Public Library Events - Check out your public library. Most libraries have summer events that the kids love, like: pet shows, magic shows, family movies and age-appropriate story times.
Go to the Park - Try out a different playground/park whenever you can. You may find a new family favorite. Take bikes, bubbles and pack up some snacks or a lunch for a day that will surely wear the kids out.
Movie Nights - Break out your DVDs/Blu-Ray Disks, pop up some popcorn, grab a few candy bars for the sale bin at the grocery store and lay out a blanket on the living room floor. You are all set. If you and your kids are tired of the same old movies, try Netflix. They have great trial-offers for free and inexpensive monthly plans too!
Game Night - Dust off those board games and have some good old fashioned family fun. It's a great way for everyone to stay connected and have fun. If your family wants a new game to play, ask a neighbor to swap board games with you for the night.
BBQ Fun - What is summer without a good, ole cook-out? Let your hubby grill up some burgers and dogs while you and the kids have fun in the backyard. Blow bubbles, run through the sprinkler, play volleyball...the options are only limited to what's in your garage.
Head to the Beach - If you are blessed to live near the beach, pack up the sunscreen, sand pails & shovels and a picnic lunch for a fun, sun-filled day.
