40 Fun Summer Activities for Kids

Summertime! The kids look forward to it all year. When it finally rolls around, they are super excited. It means more free time! More time to do the things that they love to do like playing outdoors and riding bikes. The excitement lasts for a week… or two. Then all of the excitement turns to: “I’m bored!”, “There’s nothing to do!” and,”It’s too hot outside!” Maybe it’s just my kids, but this is what happens every.single.time. So, today I have come up with a list of 40 fun summer activities for kids to help ward off those cries of boredom when the Summertime excitement wears off.
