Kids Summer Activities

Let’s get honest real quick… while kids are a huge blessing and amazing, they are also draining. I find it most difficult when they are bored. My daughters have so many toys that most of the time I can’t find their floor, but if I do not have activities planned for them they come out of their room every six minutes stating their boredom. I discovered a couple years ago the benefits of spending a few hours to research kids summer activities. Keeping kids busy can get very expensive, so to find all the free local activities it can take even longer but ends up completely worth it. Last summer I had a summer schedule with one or two free activities for my kids a day. The summer went by so quickly and they had so much fun. We made a great photo album filled with all the great things we got to do. I figure if I can keep them busy then they will be worn out when we get home and we can all take it easy.

kids summer activities

Tip 1: Check out local religious organizations close to your house. I literally just go to Google maps, type in the word “church” with my zip code, and go to each local church’s website to see when they have their VBS. I make sure I pick a place that we are familiar with because they allow me to drop off my child for several hours, usually from 9am-12pm. Often you can also find sports programs for children.

Tip 2: Check out the local libraries. While most people know that libraries have summer book clubs, many don’t know that they also offer free activities for children. These events can usually be found on their website or on the flyer for the program. Our local library has so many great opportunities that range from movies and music to juggling and science experiments. It is important to check them out early just incase you have to register your child. Often free programs fill up really quickly. Last year my oldest daughter’s favorite event would either be the magician who came in or the lesson on archaeologists.

Tip 3: Check out your local movie theater. Regal theaters and Wehrenberg both have dollar showings for their summer program. Some of the shows have been out for a little while others are new releases. My favorite part is there are so many children going to the shows that I don’t feel as anxious about having my kids in the theater. I prefer going to the theater that is located inside our mall because I pack our lunches beforehand and after the movie we can sit down and eat. If we still have time we even go to the playground area so the girls can wear themselves down before we go home.

Tip 4: Check out local pools. On occasion local pools will have a special event going for the families in the area. Knowing the times of the pool and when they have discounted entry is very helpful, especially on very hot days.

Tip 5: Keep in contact with other parents. I get most of my best information from other mothers like myself. They give me tips and I pass them on to the next person. Some good things to ask around about would be which local parks have shaded areas and unlocked bathrooms.

Tip 6: Take a lot of photos. Not only are these moments precious, but it reminds you of all the great things you got done over the summer.

My general rule of thumb is to keep the girls busy until at least noon, then we eat our lunches, they have a little playtime, then we go home where we can lay down and watch a movie. I hope you can find some great kids summer activities to keep your kids busy this summer without breaking the bank!
