Summer is upon us. Some of my best memories are from summer fun. Simple little things like playing in the driveway with chalk or catching bugs! Here is a roundup of 5 fun things you can do with your kids this summer that won't break the bank. Summer fun doesn't always have to be lavish vacations and tropical getaways it can be little fun things.
Who doesn't love bubbles? Bringing these out to break up the afternoon is a great way to get outside and reset. Watching my toddler experience the magic of trying to pop them is well worth the underboob sweat from being outside during the hottest part of the day.
2. Sidewalk Chalk
We love playing with chalk. Early morning fun in the driveway with chalk usually is where you will find us. A fun game is to draw circles with sidewalk chalk and then have your toddler sort things they find into each circle example; rocks, leaves, or sticks.
3. Bath Crayons
Now, this isn't something that screams summer, but if you live where it's hot, you'll thank me. Make bath time last a little longer. If you need a break from the summer heat bath, time
is fun. Getting out these bath crayons are a super fun activity.
Let them help make popsicles and then obviously eat them later. Nothing says summer like sticking popsicle fingers. These molds are great for making your own healthier pops.
5. Bug Boxes
If you have a little fearless explorer on your hands, catching little creatures is a fun summer activity. Make it a learning experience by learning about the bugs!
