School’s Out for Summer! Awesome Things to Do with Your Kids…

June 09, 2015

There are so many fantastic articles out there about doing creative things with your kids over summer break… But we want to encourage you to do things that are simple, easy, economical, and most of all things that will build memories to last a lifetime. Get back to the basics, and enjoy a beautiful summer! Here are some great ideas:

  • Backyard theatre and musical performances. Gather the neighborhood for one spectacular show! Help your little ones even give out tickets for their special event.
  • Build a backyard fort. Drape sheets over clotheslines or trees, snuggle up and read books together. Chase fireflies and sleep under the stars.
  • Dance in the rain. Don’t ever forget how fun this is, even as an adult. Have you ever taken a purposeful shower in the rain? That’s totally fun, too.
  • Plan a scavenger hunt. This can be as simple or elaborate as you’d like, and let your inner Benjamin Gates rule. Kids will dig it.
  • Cloud watching and daydreaming. This is the stuff childhood memories are made of. Clouds can turn into princes slaying dragons, ice cream cones, or they may even resemble grandma.
  • Play dress up together. Thrift stores and garage sales are gold mines for dress up clothes. Be one of those awesome parents who lets there kiddos wear their dress up attire to the grocery store.
  • Skip rocks across a pond or creek or lake… even (maybe) in the bathtub. This is definitely a learned skill, so patience is required.
  • Plant a garden together. Getting in the dirt is a great thing. It’s good for the body and for the soul. It’s also a great lesson in caring for our environment and living things.

All of us at www.dressmedaddy.com are wishing you a safe and spectacular summer!
