What To Do With Your Kids During the Summer
It’s summer time and the living’s easy. At least, for some of us, for others, however, it’s become something of a frustrating period. It’s hot, kids are out of school, and if you’re a stay at home parent, you’re likely panicking over what to do with them all day. For whatever reason when the temperatures climb higher, kids, unlike their parents, have an influx of energy. The high heat and humidity does nothing to dim their excitement, leaving parents even more tired and their toddlers more restless than during the cooler months.
Take my cousin, for example. A mother of two, she’s a stay at home mom who has her hands full with her eldest, who is eight, and her youngest, who is four. No matter the day, no matter what’s been done already during the week, and no matter how much energy they may have expelled in the hours before, they are still always craving for something more to keep their blood pumping. From summer camps and sleep-aways, to family vacations, my cousin has out did herself, trying to keep her little ones entertained during the long stretch of vacation. Only, there comes a point when the money runs out, and suddenly you’re left scratching your head, looking for things to do to occupy your kids.
Fortunately, when this happens, there’s always a handful of free activities to partake in, giving your kids back their summer fun, while keeping your pocket full in the mean time.
