victoria chart company reward charts blog - 50 ideas to keep your kids busy this summer

Are you looking for ideas to keep you and your kids busy while at home? We can help. Check out these ideas:

  1. Pick your own…whatever.  Find a farm with blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes, flowers, etc., and get picking.
  2. Play outside in the rain. Smell the rain on the pavement; splash in puddles; make mud pies.
  3. Make your own rain. Get out the garden hose or sprinkler.
  4. Cook out…frequently. Go beyond the burgers. Try veggies or fish. The kids might like them more if they come off the grill!
  5. Make “smores.” Chocolate + marshmallow + graham cracker = YUM!
  6. Camp out. First-timers, try backyard camping.
  7. Camp in. Put the sleeping bags on the floor and have a family slumber party.
  8. Stargaze. Go outside and make a party of it.
  9. Catch lightning bugs. And then watch them flicker away into the night.
  10.  Take family naps together. Parents can snooze too!
  11. Make your own pizza. Try this kid-friendly recipe.
  12. Start a family game night. 
  13. Stop to smell the flowers.
  14. Have a puzzle race. Use 100-piece puzzles and see who finishes first.
  15. Play a card game. Maybe crazy eights, spoons or poker. Take your pick.

Enjoy and have fun!
