50 summer activities to keep kids busy and having fun all summer long.

50 summer activities to keep kids busy and having fun all summer long.

No more teachers, no more books… yeah, summer’s here! Oh wait, that means it’s up to me to keep my child entertained for the summer. I’m horrible at imaginary and make believe games like the ones my daughter and husband play – I completely admire the skill to be able to just make up random stories on a whim and have incredible imaginary adventures but that’s a skill I simply don’t possess. Fortunately, I bring my other attributes to the table, mainly creativity. So, with that said, I decided this year to be proactive in my summer fun activities and create a checklist that we put on the fridge to use when we’re having trouble coming up things to do. Maybe if we’re diligent, we can make it through the entire list this summer. I had lots of ideas myself but also found some great activities online.  I’m sure I’m not the only parent out there trying to come up with activities to entertain the kids with, so I’m putting this list on my blog for others to print out and use too.

Also, don’t forget to check out some of the kids activities and ideas I’ve posted previously on my blog:

It’s the first day of summer vacation for us here in Victoria so Noelle and I are off now to go complete the first item we’ve chosen from our list (find smooth rocks to paint and decorate).  Enjoy and have a great summer!

Bubble fun in the sun - using the 3 minute DIY bubble maker.

Bubble fun in the sun – using the 3 minute DIY bubble maker.

3 Minute DIY Bubble Maker – How cool is this!  It literally took me 3 minutes to make and my daughter spent almost an hour playing with it outside. The neighbour kids saw Noelle playing with hers and wanted their own, so I whipped some up for them too.

What you need:

  • Small plastic bottle
  • Sock (I used one of my daughters old but clean tiny socks)
  • Elastic
  • Dish detergent & water (about half and half) in a small bow
  • Sharp knife or box cutter
Everything you need to construct your bubble maker in only 3 minutes.

Everything you need to construct your bubble maker in only 3 minutes.

What to do next:

Cut the end off the bottom of the bottle, slip the sock over that end of the bottle and secure with elastic.  Go outside.  Place sock end of bottle into the dish of soapy and then blow into the top of the bottle.

That’s it! How easy was that!  Now the kids will be entertained so you can go sit down, have a tea and watch them enjoy their new toy!
