Keeping the kids best can be a chore. They want to be moving all the time.
I tried to scheduled fun things to do that would keep them entertained other than tv and video games.
Here are some suggestions-
- go to the zoo
- visit a theme park
- take a bike ride to the park and have a picnic
- play catch
- wash the car
- talk a walk
For quieter activities,
- I love to go to the library. We would pick out stacks of books. This gave us plenty of items to read for those lazy days of summer.
- Drawing is something else I enjoyed doing. If they don't like coming up with their own pictures coloring is a wonderful way to spend a few hours...or minutes.
- Listening to a book on tape. A nice activity to enjoy with your eyes close and a nice glass of ice tea.
I hope I've offered you a few things to fill your day. I welcome you to share an activity, you enjoy doing during the summer.
