Schools out for summer, but if you don’t want to spend the next few months listening to your kids complaining about boredom you need to start planning. Summer fun doesn’t have to be expensive, and some of the best summer activities are absolutely free!
Check out your neighborhood for local parks, gardens and hiking trails. Pack some snacks, books or a deck of cards and enjoy the beautiful June weather.
Local newspapers, and their respective websites, always list free activities. Search around for street fairs, outdoor performances or movies, and food festivals.
Reach deep back into your childhood, into the days before ipods, and send your kids outside! You don’t need expensive sports equipment to play tag and climb trees.
Start an arts and crafts project or puzzle for those long, rainy days.
There are so many ways to have free summer fun, you’ll never be bored again!
