20 fun summer activities for kids

My girls and I are having a fun summer break so far. I loved having littles, but I’m really enjoying the ages of 5 and 9 right now. They are able to do quite a bit for themselves (getting dressed, grabbing a snack etc…), they enjoy sleeping in (HOORAY!) and it is easy to pack them up and head out to do something fun. We have been spending a lot of time at our local parks, taking advantage of our memberships to the local Science Museum and Zoo/Waterpark and hanging out with friends.

That being said, my kids inevitably get bored at some point in the summer, and I’m guessing that you can relate! That’s why I thought it would be helpful to share this great list of 20 Fun Summer Activities for Kids with you! I especially want to try the Backyard Obstacle Course for my kids and their neighbor friends, as well as the Nature Scavenger Hunt and Ice Chalk. Honestly, it all sounds fun to me. :-)
