Free summer time fun with the kiddos!


Schools out….please help me!

I know the struggle they follow you everywhere and complain about how bored they are. I could not imagine only having one child and having to entertain them! I have four and they teach each other, play together, and protect each other.

Sometimes in the summer people want to have fun but just don’t have the financial stability. I have created a list of all the fun things my kids and I have been doing since they were really young. Electronics are scrambling fragile brains like eggs so put it away and take out your time & imagination.

  • take a bike ride with your child teach them to follow signs
  • call a relative and plan a picnic at the park
  • have a toy car wash
  • water play outside in the yard or at the park
  • play “I spy”
  • play “mother may I?”
