School's almost Over! For two months of the year, they finally have a break, and staying indoors looking at a screen is the last thing they should be doing! So, here are some fun ideas
Take a Hike! How many times have you explored your own neighbourhood? Chances are it has plenty of things you haven’t taken the opportunity to explore, and there is no better time than the present. Alternatively, if you are planning on making a move to a new neighbourhood come fall, this is a great time to take the kids and help them get a head start on adjusting to their new surroundings.
Host a Lemonade Stand! Getting involved in your community is not only a fun activity, but is a great learning lesson while school is out. Pick a charity or community event that your family is passionate about, and host a lemonade stand with proceeds benefiting your favourite organization.
Host a Campfire! Whether at a cottage in a popular cottage destination or just enjoying time at home, there is very little that can compete with family time around the campfire. Make sure you are prepared with your favourite campfire stories, and of course S’mores!
Plant a Garden! Last but certainly not least, there is no better time to start understanding how gardening works than the present. As a family, do some research on the best types of flowers to plant in your location and building type, and start a garden that the kids can continue to care for all summer long.
