50 Fun Things to do this summer with your kids

We are a week into summer vacation and, although we’ve found ways to have a lot of fun, I’m already wrestling with the question: “What are we doing today?” I don’t do too well with too much unstructured time. I’ve set up some scheduled events – Thursday afternoons at the library. Friday beach days. Pool on Wednesdays. But, we still need some spontaneity. And in those unscheduled moments, I want to make sure we do some ideas of things to do. So, I created a Summer Bucket List.

50 Fun Things to Do This Summer with Your Kids:

  1. Have a picnic at the park.
  2. Sleep outside in a tent.
  3. Go hiking.
  4. Teach the kids to boogie board.
