Summer Activities to Keep Kids Safe and Active
Even though the sun is shining and school is out, this summer will be one unlike any other.
Parents are usually prepared for summer breaks, with childcare and camps rearranged in advance. Even with some restrictions lifted, many summer camps and childcare services will not be possible this year. Luckily there are lots of ways to still let kids be kids and enjoy the summer while also keeping them and others safe.
Even if we are social distancing, it is physically and mentally good for kids to spend time outside. On days where the weather is pleasant, any one of these activities will keep your kids engaged and enjoying the summer weather.
Start a Workout Challenge
Pack a Picnic
Host a Field Day
A classic field day can be so much fun and bring a little competitiveness out of the whole family. Set up activities such as the 3 legged race, backyard obstacle courses, potato sack races using old pillowcases, and water balloon tosses and watch the fun unfold! Offer prizes like a no chore day or choosing dinner one night.
Crafts and DIY projects are the perfect way to keep your kid's attention and the creativity here is endless. Try making a bird feeder out of a milk carton or a scavenger hunt complete with prizes.
