With less than two weeks to go of school to go I am racking my brain to find out how I am going to survive this summer with my trio of minis home with me all day every day and not go nuts.
Our minis love their Kindles, but I don’t want them focused on screens all summer considering they had them in school as well. So I am looking at ideas to keep them busy.
Here are some of the ideas I have found:
In our community we have a FREE library where they have preschool-elementary age reading programs. In these programs they have show and tell, crafts, and story time. A great way to keep those minds busy and practice those reading skills.
We have several playgrounds in our area, two of which have school-aged activities scheduled throughout the summer some of which include field trips to local ice cream shops and mini golf.
Our family loves to play mini-golf (we call it Putt-Putt) and their are several mini-golf locations in our area as well. We also make it a point to go “Putt-Putt” when we take our annual family beach trip.
Speaking of the beach I should have known with my love for swimming that I’d give birth to little fishys too! Our minis love to be in the water and we are so grateful to have relatives with a beautiful pool where we spend many summer days.
We enjoy visiting the Cape May Zoo which is a FREE (donation) zoo in New Jersey.
This summer is the summer of learning to ride our bikes so we will be spending much of our summer riding around town.
We also love to go and pick Strawberries.
Then after a hot day of strawberry picking several movie theaters offer discount and sometimes FREE kid movies.
There you have it folks, your activity survival guide for this summer. What are your summer plans?
