From The Health Room: Summer activities
Summer may be a time to relax, but tell that to kids who are bouncing off the walls or shrieking "I'm bored."
Here are some ideas for your summer bucket list -- to keep kids from being bored and create memories they'll have for a lifetime.
Visit a nature center.
Make a fort out of cardboard boxes.
Visit a farmer's market.
Stage an A to Z scavenger hunt, where you have to find something that starts with every letter.
Have a picnic at a park.
Make homemade ice cream.
Go canoeing at a local lake.
Clean up trash at a local park. Teach them the importance of keeping our earth clean.
Have a backyard campfire...or just use the grill! Roast hot dogs on sticks, pop popcorn and finish off with s'mores.
Make homemade pizza.
Go for a walk and then make a collage from nature objects you find along the way.
Head to a creek and look at the ducks.
