5 Activities to Do During the Summer with Kids

When you have kids, sometimes it's hard to keep them occupied especially in the summer months when school is out.

What do you do activity wise with your kids during the summer?


For our older kids, they have a local park program they go to during the week for a few hours each day. They are with kids from school and there are adults to facilitate the activities too. They LOVE it! We usually go earlier than the time it starts so that our two year old can play for a bit before we walk back home until time to go pick them back up. 

5 Activities to Do During the Summer with Kids:

1. Check with your local town / city and see if they have a park program for school age kids.

2. Go to the park and play for awhile and have a nice picnic lunch with your kids. Kids love going to the park to play. 

3. Go for a nice long walk and enjoy the summer breeze and stop for a break and drink water.

4. Head to the pool and go swimming for a few hours! Every child or most kids love to swim.

5. Do some crafts if your kids enjoy being creative and have fun with it.

  1. These would be really fun activities for the summer without having to dole out a huge amount of money. I love the picnic at the park idea. I will do that when I babysit for the grandchildren.

  3. We're spending a lot more time at the poo, this year. It's the first year we got a season pass. A lot of walking in the park as well.

  5. These are great picks for kids! I would make a Summer box filled activities to do indoors when it rains. The kids loved it.

  6. Great ideas! When my kids were little we also liked to visit the library during the summer months. It was a nice way to escape the heat and pick up some new books to read.

  10. We spend most of our summer days out on the beach collecting shells and creatures. Sometimes we go offroading with dad's truck and have a bonfire and smores on the beach-perfect way to get the kids energy out and ready to sleep!

  12. We love to spend the summer exploring the city trails and "pretending" to be tourists.
    Then we hit all the stuff we don't normally go to and the kids have a ball!

  14. The crafts idea sounds fun. Especially with the fourth of July coming up. Maybe something patriotic to make your surroundings festive. Cool idea.

  15. I am adding visit your local library! Most libraries have a summer reading program and they *should* be free to join. Also, yay books!

  20. These are great suggestions. My daughter has already begun the "I;m bored" and we're only a couple weeks in - back! She loves crafts and I just need to sit down and get her busy.
