I m trying to remember which activity my kids liked best to give you a tip on where to start but it is hard to remember with all these fun activities to choose from.
All are unique and it all depends on your children’s age and preferences. My kids definitely enjoyed all of the water activities since we love to go outside.
I personally like projects in general with a short material list and which are easy to set up since I have 3 kids and always one gets impatient.
There definitely should be an activity for every child to find no matter which age they have. If it is an easy arts and crafts project, science experiment, stem activity, or a summer treat to enjoy.
I truly hope my ideas will inspire you and help against the boredom of the summer and make life easier for you. Us parents should definitely stick together!
But never the less don’t forget to take a break and think about yourself for a minute too. You deserve it!
I hope you like all these cool summer activities for your children as much as I do.
