101 Summer Activities for Kids

The summer is officially here! Are you ready for some Summer Activities for Kids!! Looking for things to do? I love sharing ideas with you guys! With 5 kids it’s important to make sure I have a full list of things to do with the kids. I don’t want to be standing around in the morning confused or saying the dreaded – “WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TODAY?” question. I like to have things ready to rock and roll for them. I’m all about finding Summer Activities for Kids that will make them happy and me happy, too!
