What to do this summer
Having a 3 year-old at home, I am always looking for something to help us get out of the house. But during the summer, it can be super hot and not so great to get out. I tried to jot down a few fun activities that we can do together where the heat wouldn't get to us. Please add to the list! By the way, my friend Sara at Happy Brown House has a great list of Chattanooga area parks.
Here is my list:
Library (Most have summer reading programs right now)
Sprinkler/kiddie pool at home
Petting zoo at local farm
Boy tea party (dress up like super heroes, firefighters, etc).
Wash my car
Concerts/movies in the park
Picnic in the park with friends or grandparents
Local amusement park that is kid-friendly (Called Lake Winnie)
Make no bake cookies
Visit church shut-is
If you have older kids, Family Fun's Website is a great place for ideas. T hey have all kinds of crafts for kids to do.
What do you and your kids like to do during the summer?
