The school year has come to a close. Now...what to do to keep your kids busy and happy. Summer time is a time of excitement for kids and you want to do everything possible to avoid hearing “mom, dad, I’m bored”. Finding enough summer activities for your kids can often be a never ending task. No matter how old your children are, you want to find events and programs that will keep your children engaged and active. Use the many resources in our community, and take the time to discuss ideas for summer activities with the whole family.
List out the top activities for each family member then try to map out the next 8 weeks. Plan a longer family vacation during the summer if you can. Try to take a week cottage stay, visiting family further away or a beach vacation. Sign the kids up for overnight camps or a week long day camp in something that is exciting for them. Community guides list several activities that are available in and around the city.
Day events such as garden parties, day class, community celebrations and festivals can be a great way to spend a summer day. Usually they are free or require a small donation. Take advantage of these great events to fill up your summer calendar.
Enjoy some of these day out ideas: Trip to the Zoo, Visit the Museum, Picnic and Day at the Park, an afternoon at the Movie Theatre, Beach Day/Water Park Play dates with Friends, Activities at the Library, Bike Ride, Miniature Golf, Bowling Alley, Hiking and Fishing.
You don’t need to leave your home or backyard to enjoy a summer day. Plan some fun activities to do right at home. Treasure hunt, water balloon fight, puzzles, dress up, and creative art projects can all be done on a day that will be spent at home. Mark out your activities on the calendar and watch how quickly it will fill up. Whatever activities you choose, spend the summer doing things that will bring your family closer together. Memories are made from time spent with friends and family and doing fun activities. Try and spend a lot of the time outside while the weather is nice!
