Summer is here! Well, it’s almost here. Warmer weather means kids will be outside and active, so we made a list of some of our favorite summer activities for kids on the internet!
Use an old sock, and a water bottle to make these awesome bubble snakes!
Use an old tarp and some duct tape to turn your front yard into a fun passing game! Great for practice too!
This takes very little prep time the night before, and will keep your kids busy for a very long time. It will also keep them cool!
Make your own fun sprinkler out of a pool noodle for hours of wet, summer fun!
Make Twister a way to cool off! This is a great idea for those hot days.
Perfect for when it’s raining outside, this wall mural painting for kids is awesome!
These boxes are packed full of great activities to help kids be still for a bit and rest.
This one looks fun, but it also looks like it could get messy!
9. Self-Freezing Coca-Cola
I love when I can find summer activities for kids that teach and offer a treat at the same time!
Make baseball a ay to cool off with water balloons instead of actual balls!
Your kids will LOVE you if you do this one, but be sure to have the hose ready to clean them off before they come inside!
This one is also messy, but isn’t growing up about getting a little dirty?
This activity uses paint covered balls rolling down gutter piping!
Kids love to make messes. Let them pour to their hearts delight in a controlled area with this activity!
Use your fence, or an old pallet if you don’t have a fence, to make an interactive water wall for the kids!
This has lots of ideas for racing cars down gutters (hint: they’re not all traditional cars!!).
17. Sand Volcano
You can make more than castles out of sand! Check out this awesome interactive sand volcano!
18. DIY Egg Geodes
Make awesome geodes with Borax!
This activity was part of an Angry Birds birthday party, but we think it’s cool enough to play on its own!
20. Backyard Zipline
How cool would it be to make your very own zipline in your backyard?!
21. Water Balloon Pinata
This would be an awesome way to cool off!
