Summer is a great time to relax and have outdoor play time, but it can be hard for kids who thrive on structure. Kids start complaining that they’re bored, and parents may feel overwhelmed by the responsibility of constantly entertaining them. Instead of feeling like you need to entertain your kids, you can facilitate fun activities they can do mostly on their own. Here are four fun outdoor activities for kids of all ages they’ll have a blast doing.
Summer is baseball season. Make it even more fun with water balloons.
Divide the kids into two teams, and have them play loosely by baseball’s rules. Each team gets a point for every balloon they pop. Switch up the batter after a couple of swings, and have the kids try to tag each other running from base to base.
Fun With Bubbles
Bubbles are fun for all ages, and they can be made even more fun with a few variations.
