Things to do this summer!
Summer is fast-approaching. And with this comes a lot more free time for kids at home. They are so excited to finish the school year, but are often bored after the second week.
I highly recommend helping kids to learn to be self-entertainers. I mean this in a way that they aren't constantly bothering you, the parent, to help them figure out something to do. Not only will this help their creativity and imagination to continue to develop, it will also allow you the freedom to still get things done.
I also highly recommend kids staying active during the summer. It can be so easy for kids today to become inactive, lazy and overweight in today's culture. Help fight childhood obesity and keep your kids active!
