Fun Summer Activities for the Kids

We’re right in the middle of the dog days of summer, so how do you make sure your kids stay entertained while they’re on vacation from school? Here are a few great activities to keep them busy and happy!

Go Outside

The weather might reach triple digits during the middle of the day, but early in the morning the weather is just right for a little play time. Richardson has a great variety of parks, and many are close to Canyon Creek. Prairie Creek Park, Point North Park and more are all just a short drive or walk away!

Have a Picnic

Everyone loves a picnic, and sometimes it’s just as much fun to prepare as it is to eat! Use fresh veggies to make a salad, or make tortilla wraps instead of sandwiches. Pack some cold drinks and some cake for dessert, and you’ve got yourself a fun picnic!

Ice Cream Time

When the weather is hot, nothing cools you off like a big double scoop of your favorite ice cream. Start a new tradition and have an ice cream day!

Game Day

Have each kid choose their favorite board game and devote a few hours to each one. Board games keep kids entertained and some even have an educational element to them. It’s always a good thing to keep their brains sharp during their time off from school.
