Summer is here and children are out of school.
If your kids are like mine, they count down the days until school ends, and they revel in their newfound freedom — for a week or two. Then, the inevitable sibling bickering and the whines of “I’m booooored” begin.
By mid-July at the peak of summer when they’re most bored and the temperatures are soaring, things can seem pretty grim. Parents may begin counting down the days until school is BACK in session.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
There are plenty of things you and the kids can do to have a fun, educational summer. (All the better if they don’t realize they’re learning while they’re having fun!)
Best of all, many of these activities are cheap or free!
