Best Kid-Friendly Summer Activities
Summer is just around the corner and we are so excited! Seriously, what isn’t there to love about summertime? But with such beautiful weather and all this extra free time what can you do to keep your kids entertained? Here are our favorite kid-friendly summer activities:
Go To The Pool
Whether you go to a community pool or have a kiddie pool in the back yard, spending time at the pool during the summer is always a blast! There are so many fun things to do at the pool that no pool day is ever the same. Soak up the sun, practice swimming, play games – the fun is endless!
Visit Your Local Farmers Market
We absolutely love visiting our local farmers market in the summer. It is so much fun to walk around, check out all the beautiful flowers and shop for fresh produce. Not only are the fruit and veggies a million times better when you buy them from the farmers market, but you are also supporting local farmers and small businesses. Plus, there’s really nothing better than fresh fruit on a hot summers day.
Free Movies at Your Local Theater
Many movie theaters offer free or dollar matinee movies for kids during the summer. This is a super fun thing to do with kids during those rainy summer days when you’re stuck inside. Check with your local movie theater to see if they are participating, most theaters have movies scheduled for each week available ahead of time.
Playing with sidewalk chalk is such a simple, yet fun activity for kids during the summer. Kids love to draw with chalk. Not only is it an excellent way for kids to explore their creativity, but it is also a great way to spend some quality time outdoors. I love to use chalk to help teach Ella her colors. Chalk can be both fun and educational at the same time.
Go Out For Ice Cream
Ice cream on a hot summer day.. is there anything better than that? I don’t think so! I have so many fond summer memories going out for ice cream as a kid. It’s just one of those little things that make summer so special!
Go Strawberry Picking
Strawberry picking is such an amazing summer activity. Not only is it a super fun thing to do during the summer, but it’s also relatively inexpensive.. and yummy of course! If you’ve never gone strawberry picking, then it’s time to add this to your summertime bucket list.
Have a Picnic
Pack your fresh produce from the farmers market and the delicious fresh strawberries and take your kids on a picnic this summer. Picnics are a really fun summer activity and a great way to spend quality time together outdoors. We love to explore different parks and whats a better way to spend your day at the park than to have a picnic!
Go To The Beach
The beach is such a fun place for kids! There’s just something so special about visiting the ocean. I don’t think the summer is complete without a family trip to the beach. There are so many fun things to do at the beach that you just can’t do anywhere else.
There are so many fun things to do with kids this summer! The most important thing is to make memories with the people you love. I hope you enjoy these fun summertime activities.
