7 Activities to Keep Kids Busy All Summer!

Summer has FINALLY arrived! 

The kids are out of school and every day is another adventure just waiting to happen! 

Whether your kids are staying home this summer, heading to day camp, or just searching for NEW family activities to embark on the weekends, we’ve found an adventure for you! 

7 days of the week means you’ll need an activity for each day to keep kiddos on the move! Some activities are all-day adventures, while others are short and sweet excursions. But no matter which activity you choose, your kiddos will be busy enjoying their summer. 

We’ve also included a FREE PRINTABLE weekly calendar with all the activities listed to keep on the fridge or corkboard when you’re looking for something to do. 

7 Days of Activities:

Move It Monday! 

It’s the BEST time of year to be on the move! Kids thrive when they are learning through active play and ADVENTURE! If you have a little ballerina at home, sign her up for a summer dance class. If your kiddo wants to enjoy the outdoors, take them to a local nature trail for hiking. On busy days when the workload takes over, go for an evening stroll after dinner. Taking even just a half-hour to move your body will make all the difference. 

Don’t wait to register for our upcoming summer session! Spots are still available with limited numbers for social distancing. Early Bird discounts end on June 30th! REGISTER TODAY! 

Trivia Tuesday!

School may be out of session for the summer, but that doesn’t mean the learning stops! There are so many ways to incorporate educational games and activities into your children’s weekly routine. Find free printables online to encourage summer reading, complete a STEM Challenge together or take a trip to your local nature preserve for a science adventure! 

 

Waterplay Wednesday!

Let’s splash around! We all know that in Wisconsin summer we soak up all the fun in the sun we can get, but having a dedicated water play day is something the whole family can look forward to! Create a new water balloon game, set up the slip n’ slide for family races, or head to your local beach for an all-day swim session! 

 

Travel Fun Thursday!

Hope in the car and take a trip! There are so many activities in our area that are short afternoon outings or all-day adventures. Head to the splash pad in Drexel Town Square for an afternoon in the sun and finish with a stop at the library for a summertime book. Walk to your closet playground for a morning quest or take a road trip to the Botanical Gardens and spend the day learning in nature. 

 

Family Friday!

What better way to end the week than with the family! Friday nights are the perfect time to catch up with one another on how the week went, goals that were accomplished, and tasks that still need completing. Make it fun by having an outdoor family game night with Ladder Ball, Badminton, or Bag Toss! Take an evening family bike ride around the neighborhood or host a backyard camp out and spend time together under the stars. 

Step Up Saturday!

Saturday is the start of the weekend and the BEST day to tackle those around-the-house projects as a family! No matter what is on the list, have little ones help with simple jobs to keep busy while parents complete the main task. Not only are you accomplishing everyday chores, but you’re spending time together and educating your kiddos how to work as a team! 

 

Simple Sunday!

Sundays can be so many things! Relaxing at home, adventures on the road, or spending the afternoon with family and friends. Decide together what your Sunday will look like. Will you journey to the new exhibit at the zoo, or stay in your pajamas for an all-day movie marathon!?  Whatever you choose, time together is always well spent. 

 

We hope this helps you enjoy summer to the fullest with your favorite people! 

 

P.S. Dance classes are a great Summer Activity! If you or someone you know are looking for something exciting to try this summer, don’t miss your chance to register the child in your life in our upcoming summer session!
