Ideas for Activities to do This Summer

There are plenty of things to do and some of them are even free of cost with just as much fun! Below is a list of things to check out for some daily entertainment!

  • County or Town Fairs and Festivals – Fairs and festivals are always great for people of all ages. There is plenty of games, good food and entertainment for everyone to enjoy. Summer is a popular time for these so be sure to keep your ears open!
  • Markets or Farmer’s Markets – Markets are always a good way to get out of the house even if you don’t purchase anything. It is great to get out and walk around and look at everything for sale.
  • Crafts – There are plenty of craft shows that take place in the area that you can attend but you can also make crafts at home. Having a craft time with your kids is not only fun for them, it allows you to spend some time with them and watch their young minds work!
  • Local Live Music – Live music is another thing that you will have to keep an eye out for. A lot of public parks will have live music that is free.
  • Public Park or Pools – Most kids enjoy spending some time at the park on the playground and it’s easy and free for you! Check out your local parks and pools and let the kids burn off some energy!
  • Yard Games – If you have something to get done at home, try finding a new yard game for your kids to try out. This way you know where they are, and they are still spending some time outside playing.
