50 Free Summer Activities for You and Your Kiddos

Who is in need of a Summer Bucket List!? Well... HERE WE GO!

While summer is super enticing, sometimes those days can get a little long when you don't know what to do. If you've ever heard the words "I'm bored" uttered from your kid's lips (probably a million times a day) you know it can drive you a little batty! So be prepared with a list of activities they can do whenever the "I'm bored" hits!

I know I know, you're probably thinking "STEPHANIE THE STRESS", I totally get it and have been through the same thing... but it's important. I talk ALL about how we got through it as a family and even about a few other juicy things in my Adventuring With Your Kids in my E-Book!

Just remember: not every single (if ANY) activity you do with your kiddos needs to be extravagant or pricey.

*Pro Tip! Write each idea on a popsicle stick and add them to a mason jar. Then when "I'm bored" stops in at your house you can direct your kiddos to grab a stick and kick 'em to the curb!
