Take a look at these summer ideas and activities for kids that have been shared in years past and get ready for another summer of fun:
Although I look forward to the downtime in the summer, it can also create all kinds of fights and “I’m booooooored” reactions from my kids. BUT– there are so many easy, good ideas to do with your kids to make summer a little more fun without a ton of work. You don’t have to do all of these ideas with your kids. Just pick a few to try and go for it —

Activities for Kids
Your kids will love doing these activities. Some are a little more involved than others (like teaching your child to cook!) but well worth it and they’ll appreciate spending time with you:
- Teach Kids How to Hand Sew
- Pin the Cherry on the Ice Cream Cone
- Kids Cooking Camp
- Ice Cream Math Game
- Straw Building
- Make Your Own Bubble Blower
One thing I always want to encourage is reading! Summer is the perfect time to get lost in a good book (or 2 or 10). Here are some ideas for how to encourage your kids to read too:
- Encourage Reading with this Bubble Gum Game
- 20 Books for Teen Boys
- Over 50 Books for Tween and Teen Girls
- Summer Reading Challenge Bookmarks
- Best Audiobooks for Kids– great for road trips!
While I have tons of printables, these are perfect for summer:
