Summer Fun for Kids



Kids get bored so easy, it’s difficult to keep them entertained when the video games, cell phones and televisions are turned off.  Here are a few things Jon’s family and my family do to have summer fun together.

  1. Dog Park – playing with Fido is always lots of fun for the dog and the family (especially the kids).  Visit a local dog park with your canine friend and take his favorite toys along.
  2. Camp Fire – building a small fire in a fire pit is lots of fun for kids.  Add some hot dogs, marshmallows and let the fun begin.  Jon is great at telling stories around the camp.
  3. Gardening – a small garden cultivated and grown by your children will teach them a lot about nature AND they will be more inclined to eat the vegetable they grow.  A flower garden is another great way to spend time with your kids.  Large pots will suffice for those with limited space.
  4. Grill Out – kids love hot dogs from the grill (Jon and I prefer a steak) so light the grill and invite your kid’s friends over.
  5. Picnic – visiting a park with a lake, creek or stream that allows a picnic is fantastic fun for the kids.  Simple sandwiches, a few sodas and chips and you have an afternoon your kids will be begging for again and again.
  6. Biking – all kids love their bicycle, make it a family outing!  There are lots of family friendly biking paths in the Charlotte area.
  7. Baseball Game – the Charlotte Knights and Kannapolis Intimidators have wonderful facilities with lots of kid activities.  If you child gets a foul ball, he will cherish it for life!
  8. Playgrounds – there are a plethora of public playgrounds to enjoy.  Take a few hours with your family one afternoon and visit a park.
