Tired of Hearing - "I'm Bored" ? Here's 50 Summer Fun Activities For Kids To Help Keep Those Little Hands and Feet Busy

I don’t know about you but every summer seems to start off with a bang of activity, it fly’s by at lightening speed, and before I know it I’m reading teacher manuals-prepping lesson plans for the fall. 

 
Where did our summer go? What did we do?
 
I am a total advocate of letting kids be kids and fostering all things ‘creative’. I want my children to grow up as well rounded, giving, and selfless individuals.
 
Year after year I see–ha, who am I kidding? I’ve created ‘lists’ of things to do during the Summer months only to fall short and not follow through. This year, I am determined to complete our 50 summer time activities. Not because we need more to do but rather quite the opposite- my family is my focus.
 
So often we get caught up in the daily grind of life, sporting events, and travel plans- we forget to do life. We forget to be intentional, creative, and free. Free to “let it go” – the house work will be there- the laundry isn’t going anywhere as long as you choose to be clothed- and, the floors will be dirty as long as there is dirt outside. We are inside cooking and cleaning while, the kids run free. Unstructured creative play is so important for brain development – but, so is spending quality time with mom and dad.
 
Most of these activities are short in duration, require little to no prep, and guarantee some time with those who mean the most. A home is just that- it’s the people in it that really matter- so prepare to step off the ‘priority’ train and cut loose. 
 
Join us as we dive into summer – print your list and lets get started–we would love to hear all about your family summer adventures so be sure to leave us a comment here or on our facebook page– accountability will be the key to our success- let’s hold hands and see that our kids have the best summer ever.
