School’s out, now what to do?
The end of the school year is coming to an end for many families and everyone is beginning to wonder what to do for the summer months. There are many options to consider from staycations, vacations, continued eduction for the summer and more. It’s all about how you want to approach the coming months. Here are a few ideas I’ve found online recently.
Staycations are becoming very popular and are all about taking advantage of all of the fun stuff in your local area. For example, in Arizona when the summer months approach and it’s too hot for tourists to visit resorts prices drop dramatically and make it a fun getaway at an affordable price. Or, just visiting local national parks and museums you might have never thought of going to. There is always something for the kids to learn from and they can be either free or cost very little. Also, it’s great to sign up for community newsletters and sites like Macaroni Kid that share when holidays come that offer free admissions to museums and national parks.
Make it a day at the park. Find a park that has a pond with ducks, or a water system for them to play in. Bring a special picnic with all of your child’s favorite foods. To bring the learning into effect, bring nature books that teaches the kids about the animals and plants at the park. Sometimes it’s just the little things that can teach them so much.
Camping in the backyard:
I’ve never been someone who thought they’d want to camp, but now that I have kids I’ll consider anything:) I think that the cutest thing ever is setting up camp in the backyard. There are so many creative ways to set up camp now. It doesn’t just need to be a tent. I’d find lots of inspiration for how to change it up during the summer on pinterest.
What are your plans for the summer with your kids?
