So, we found a list of 100 fun summer ideas. Take a look at some of the fun things that you and your kids can do to fill up the summer days.

Go Outside and Explore Nature

Spring and summer are for outdoor fun. So, get out in the fresh air with a few exciting outdoor activities that you can use as educational moments. One way to explore nature is to go bird watching. You can teach your little one about local wildlife at one of these wonderful places to go bird watching near Fredericksburg. Another outdoor nature activity is gardening. Since Virginia is home to plenty of hummingbirds, you can plant flowers and plants that hummingbirds will love.  To add a little extra fun to your garden, make a fairy house as well.

Indoor Fun During the Summer

Sometimes getting outside during the summer just isn’t possible. On rainy days, there are plenty of activities that you can do indoors to keep the summer fun going. One interesting thing you can do is dive into your family history and make a time capsule for future generations to discover. Another is playing board games. Did you know that playing board games can help your child develop critical thinking skills? Teach your little one the fundamentals of chess or checkers then challenge them to a few matches.

Schedule Arts and Crafts Time

Let your little one tap into their creative side with arts and crafts. While you’re outdoors exploring nature, you can pick up a few rocks to take home and paint later. Make sure to find flat smooth stones to paint. You can put the finished product in your garden, give them as a gift to friends and family, or use them as a paperweight. Another artsy summer idea is creating chalk murals on your sidewalk or driveway. You can purchase sidewalk chalk from your local store, or order it online. If you’re in the mood to get super crafty, you can also make DIY chalk with cornstarch, water, and food coloring.
