Fight Summer Boredom
Now that it’s the heat of summer, it’s harder for kids to find fun activities on their days off. In June, Kids.gov hosted a Twitter chat where we brainstormed fun and educational activities for your kids this summer.
We were joined by numerous partners, including NASA, Fitness.gov, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Girlshealth.gov, My Plate and more, and an enormous amount of resources were shared to help spark new activity ideas for your kids. Take a look at some of the highlights from the chat:
What kinds of outdoor activities do you do with your kids in the summer?
Do you have a favorite park, pool or beach you take the kids to every summer?
Summer weather can be rough, but summer nights are beautiful. Are there any evening activities you love to do with your kids?
Summer is full of BBQs and vacations. Do you try and encourage healthy eating with your kids?
How do you keep your kids entertained on rainy days? There are some great educational games and videos now to help!
