Bored No More: 5 Free Summer Activities To Keep Your Kids Entertained
for summer, which means long days of swimming, cookouts, and play dates. But
beware: there will come a time this summer when your children tell you that they're
bored. Be prepared! These free activities will keep your kids entertained and
engaged until school starts again:
1. Take trips to the local library. Contrary to what your kids might
think of libraries, they are actually one of the perfect places to take them
during the summer. Check out your local library for a list of the different
activities they're hosting and ask them about their summer reading program.
It's a great place for the kids to interact with others their age while keeping
their mind stimulated during summer break.
2. Movies in the park. There's nothing better than a free
movie! Check to see if your town (or one nearby) is hosting a movie in the park
during the summer. This is a great way to wind down the day and relax with your
family, all while keeping the kids entertained.Related

to explore new surroundings all while getting exercise!
4. Have a game tournament.There's nothing wrong with a little
family-friendly competition. Have a family game or card tournament during the
duration of the summer and see who ends up being the champion!
5. Cool off at a splash pad. Pool passes can be expensive; that's what
splash pads are for! These free "water parks" are great for kids of all ages
and you don't have to worry about them going to the deep end. Splash pads
