I have a couple of obvious ones for you, and then one that has been a recent hit with my kids:
Obvious Choice 1: Vacation Bible School
This is the first year my kids have been really into it, but they LOVED it and were begging to go every night, “Is it time yet? Can we go to clubs yet?”
Obvious Choice 2: Summer Camp
This is my kid’s first year to go to one, and they couldn’t wait to go every day (sorry for the picture quality, it’s my cell phone). They went to a sports sampler camp at the gym, and I spent those two hours happily ensconced at a nearby Chik Fil A drawing and coloring like crazy.
BIG PLUS to these activities, it results in this:
Not So Obvious Choice 3: Visit an RV showground
“What?” you say, wander around in the heat and look at RVs. “Yes,” I say. Your kids will think it’s so much fun to see these “houses on wheels.”
Who can argue with faces like that? Besides it’s fun for Jeff and I to talk about where we would travel in one, what would we do, etc…….
What fun activities have you done? Any great recommendations?
