Bring on summer! Sunny days, ice cream swimming… And a ton of other super fun summer activities for kids! Most of these ideas on what to do with your kids are frugal and are easy to set up.
12. Sprinkles! Can’t have a fun summer without sprinkles – perfect to cool down on a hot summer day. Whether it’s squirt guns, fancy hose nozzles or you make awesome ones by using pool noodles . There are all kinds of water toys that you do not need a pool for and the kids will stay cool during those hot summer days.
14. Set up a lemonade stand (classic). While your at it include ice cream, cookies, a bake sale and or anything else to spice it up. Lemonade is easy. Scour the neighborhood for lemons from a tree. This is the best kind of lemonade. (Of course make sure you ask first). Once you secure lemons it’s time to make lemonade.
16. Go to the library and borrow a book about folding paper air planes (you’ll be amazed at how many different ways there are to fold a plane!). Make a few and have a competition to see which model will fly the furthest (or highest, or makes the most loops…).
18. Buy an inexpensive piece of clothing for kids – preferably white, some textile paints or markers and let them create their very own clothes (or even a clothes line if you find a good bargain). You can also buy clothes that are ready for painting and coloring that have pre designed art on them.
