When summer rolls around each year, kids across the land rejoice, but many stay at home moms find that having the kids underfoot all summer can prove to be a bit challenging. So what?s a mom to do? Here?s a list of a few summer activities that will keep the kids having fun all summer long.
1. Day Camp
While overnight camp might be a bit daunting for some children, especially younger kids, day camp is a great inexpensive way to fill up their summer with fun activities. The kids will get to take part in fun activities like arts and crafts, and they will build friendships that could last a lifetime. Day camps are a great way to get the kids outside and enjoying just being a kid without breaking your budget.
2. Vacation Bible School
You don?t have to be a member of a church to get your kids involved in a Vacation Bible School. Oftentimes churches will have their VBS schedules staggered so that you can send your kids to more than one during the course of the summer. This is a great way to get kids involved in their community, build them up spiritually, and let them just enjoy being a kids.
Allowing your kids to do summer work around your neighborhood like mowing lawns, small household jobs teaches them responsibility. Not to mention it gives them a little extra spending money that didn?t come from the bank of mom. This is a great way to teach them about managing money at the same time.
