1. Plan a trip to a fun park
I’m sure that every child likes a fun park. Thrilling rides, lots of fun shows, games and interesting prizes, there are many things to do in a fun park! Go to a fun park and your children will love you forever. Moreover, fun parks always have activities for mom and dad as well!
2. Go to the beach
The beach is among the best summer activities your children will like. What can be better than the sun, the sand and the surf? Take along sunscreen, blankets, boogie boards, some sand toys, pack a picnic lunch and you will have a great day!
3. Enjoy a picnic
Picnic is a great opportunity to enjoy some family bonding time. Pack up a blanket, some of your children’s favorite foods, some toys (a Frisbee, a ball and a kite) and a few books and head outdoors! You can go to a park or have a picnic in your own backyard.
4. Plan some fun water play activities
If you don’t live near the beach, you can keep your children cool by planning fun water play activities. For instance, go to the pool. Don’t have the pool? Some other fun water play activities to consider include playing in the sprinkler or a toss-the-wet-sponge game as well as water balloon fights.
5. Go to a museum

Ask your children questions about what they see or even create a treasure hunt for your kids to keep them engaged.
