Fun in the Summer Fun: Kid Friendly Summer Activities

Welcome to the 1st of our Fun in the Summer Fun event! Each Monday until September 7th Mama to 4 Blessings along with Adventures of Mommydom, Sweet Diva, Harvest Moon By Hand, and Sweet Phenomena will be hosting Fun in the Summer Fun link up events.
Here’s the line up:
The 1st Monday of each month: link up your “Kid friendly summer activities”
The 2nd Monday of each month: link up your “Kid friendly summer crafts”
The 3rd Monday of each month: link up your “Kid friendly summer receipes”
The 4th Monday of each month: link up your “How to stay cool in the summer heat”

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
021035
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
001019
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:
001003
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?

  1. The last suggestion – about going to an RV showground – would be something that my daughters would have fun doing!

    We went to a horse show back in April and there were horse trailers that had attached living quarters for people. The girls enjoyed going in them and checking them out…especially the upper-end ones that cost as much as a house. 🙂

  2. My kids would love the RV showground ~ they would find it fascinating! We're getting ready for our VBS next week, and then camp the last week of July and first week of August. =)

  3. My kids would LOVE to visit an RV showground. I don't see Mike going for it, but maybe I'll take them while he's on one of his countless business trips this summer…
