10 Fun Summer Ideas For kids And Thier Parentes
It’s official. I am now the Father of a houseful of Little and big Kids. It takes more than a park day and a kids’ meal to entertain them. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t feel that it’s my job to entertain them all summer long, but sometimes it’s just as fun for me to take the time to do something special with them as it is for them.
I’ve already told my Oldest (3 years) that I’ll take her and her cousin out for a few special cousin days during our summer break. So, I’ve been compiling a list of ideas. I decided to brainstorm some fun things I’d like to do with just my kids and some ideas that I probably won’t do, but that you might want to enjoy with your kids.
If you share your ideas in the comments, we should all be able to find some ideas we can use to enjoy some special time with our big kids this summer.
Let’s get start:
1.Make homemade ice cream. (Here is how to make one.)
3. Go out for breakfast.
4. Play paintball.
6. Host a sleepover. Okay, maybe this isn’t something you really want to do with them, but it might just get you cool mom points – Don’t hate me 🙂
8. Go to the mall. This can be fun even if you don’t have much money for shopping. Try on silly hats and take photos on your phone or take and text photos of what you’d buy someone if you had the money. It’ll make them smile knowing that you’re thinking of them.
9. Take a hike.
10. Go swimming.
Okay, now it’s your turn! What would you add to the list of fun things to do with little and big kids?
