My kids have been in school now for 2 weeks but I know for many parts of the United States kids are just getting ready to go back in September. School may have started or is approaching but that doesn’t mean summer is ending. It is still bright and sunny, hot and humid, and we still have our weekends. Why not squeeze in a little fun with the kids whether they are in school or not?
Enjoy the End of Summer with these Fun Ideas
Maybe you can’t take a week long camping trip to your favorite camp ground but you can still enjoy a quick getaway with a weekend camping trip. Pack light, you will only be gone for two nights. Make sure you pack the marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers and definitely don’t forget the bug spray.
No need to pack for an overnight stay but you can still pack up and enjoy a picnic at your local park. Or if you don’t want to go too far have a backyard picnic or even one indoors. Just make sure you pack all your favorite foods and a few things to do when you’re not enjoying your lunch.
Explore Your City
Another way to stay close to home is to explore your city with your children. Enjoy a lunch down town, a trip to the library, or some hidden spot that only you know about.
