Fun Summer Activities at Home

The kids will be out of school for the summer before you know it which means now is the time to prepare! Having the kids around during summer means it’s up to you to entertain them. Fortunately, there are plenty of fun-filled activities you can do right in your yard or living room. Here are a few fun summer activities you can do at home as suggested by us here at Buff Whelan Chevrolet!

Fun Summer Activities

  • Camp Out – A weekend camping trip in the woods an get expensive and time consuming very quickly. Fortunately, those with access to a yard can minimize the experience in a way that kids will love. Pitch the tent in the yard, start a fire (safety first), and cook some hotdogs and marshmallows.
  • Develop Skills – Did you know that many home improvement stores host workshops for families? Inquire about times and dates at your local hardware store, like Lowe’s or Home Depot. It’s a great way to spend time with kids and introduce and develop new skills!
  • Visit Local Museum – School may be out, but that’s no excuse to slack off when it comes to education. Kids should always be learning whether they know it or not. Many museums offer special classes, workshops, and tours that expose kids to new ideas and concepts. Find museum event that your kids will enjoy and sign up!
