The warmer weather and the longer days mean more time with the kids and the need for fun activities to occupy them after school or on the weekend.
If you are not careful, summer can get expensive with days to theme parks, trips to get ice cream and pool entrance fees.
Having fun together and making wonderful memories doesn’t have to cost the Earth, that’s why I’ve put together this list of free or almost free activities you can do with the kids this summer. Have fun stargazing in the backyard or creating interesting ice cream combos while you create memories that will last a lifetime!
Summer Bucket list Lesson Ideas
Host a lemonade stand – food prep, counting, handling money, customer service.
Plant some flowers – Plifecyclescyles, what plants need to grow, photosynthesis.
Pick Berries – Life on the farm, how different fruits grow (blueberry bush, strawberries close to the ground)
A day at the beach – What are shells, how is sand formed, life under the sea.
Have a yard sale – recycling and reusing things, donating the unsold items, handling money and counting, negotiating
Go for a hike – woodland animals, collecting leaves and acorns.
