Saying Goodbye to Summer

Now that August is here there are only a few more weeks left of summer. Make August memorable for your little ones by trying out some of these local and easy-to-do ideas:

  • Go on a nature hunt. Look for leaves, sticks, flowers, bugs, animals, colors, textures
  • Try out one of these kid-friendly at-home science experiments, such as making dry ice bubbles or a kid-safe lava lamp
  • Finger paint the sidewalk
  • Host an ice cream social
  • Make a water obstacle course outside with buckets, water-filled sponges, sprinklers, and water balloons
  • Visit a local museum
  • Have a picnic
  • Take a trip to Burke Lake Park for mini-golf, train or carousel rides, or stroll around the lake
  • Play hangman or tic-tac-toe with chalk outside
  • Play a board game or cards as a family
  • Camp out in the backyard or create camp night indoors with s’more fixings, hot dogs, and storytelling
