Summer Activities for Kids

Movies are great, but the summer offers so many different options for entertainment. Encourage your little ones to get outside this summer with these outdoor activities for kids.


Squirt Gun Art

Squirt guns are fun, but have you ever painted with them? You can fill cheap squirt guns with liquid watercolors, set up an easel outside, and let your kids go to town with this summer art project. 

Sidewalk Chalk

This outdoor accessory is a classic for a reason. Let your kids get creative. Then, take your kid’s sidewalk art to the next level with this glow-in-the-dark chalk recipe.


Don’t bother coming inside to eat lunch. Instead, have your kids step into the kitchen to help prepare a delicious picnic. Whether your menu includes ants on a log, sandwiches, or fruit salad, let your kids be a part of preparing lunch for everyone.

Colorful Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunts are a fun and interesting way to keep kids occupied, but they can take a long time to prepare. However, this scavenger hunt only requires that you scribble some colors onto a blank piece of paper. Send your kids out to look for things in nature that match the colors on the paper.
