8 Fun Activities To Do With Kids This Summer

Here is a list of fun activities  to do with your kids this summer:

Camp in yard

Get a tent in the backyard and spend the night underneath the stars. This free summer activity has one major benefit over normal camping: there’s a working toilet couple feet away! Don't have a backyard? Make your own camp in the living room!

Plan a Bike Parade

Tell your kids to decorate their rides with streamers, stickers, flags, and more—then let them cruise around the neighborhood to show off their creation.

Make a bird feeder

Invite summertime birds to your yard with a DIY bird feeder. To make it, simply coat sticks with peanut butter and roll them in birdseed. It’s the perfect opportunity to teach kids about nature and animals.

DIY Chalk Bombs

Kids will have a blast with this idea from mom Lorie King Kaehler, author of Chalk on the Wild Side. Use a clean soap-dispenser pump to fill water balloons with a washable chalk-paint mixture (1 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, and a few drops of food coloring). Have your child draw targets on the ground with chalk or just let him go wild. Fire away!

At home picnic

You can host a picnic lunch without leaving your property! Choose a mealtime destination, whether it’s a patio table or blanket in the backyard. Prepare picnic staples like sandwiches, load them into a basket, and enjoy dining al fresco. 

 

Decorate rocks

The next time you embark on a hike, have your children collect rocks. At home, they can decorate the stones with paint, stickers, markers, glitter, and other art supplies. Display the finished products around the house, use them as paperweights, or give them to relatives!

Make Homemade Goop

Mix up a bowl of Oobleck, a mysterious matter that kids can shape into balls or let ooze from their fingers. Here's how:

  • Pour one cup of water into a large mixing bowl
  • Add a few drops of food coloring (any color)
  • Slowly stir in two cups of cornstarch (use a spoon at first, but you may eventually find it's easier with your hands)

Go over their old clothes and items

Get the kids together go over their baby clothes and toys. It's great to tell them stories about them and you can also donate or resell some of them with your kid's help! And if you find old baby's shoes, you can always have them bronzed by Bronzery !

Your kids can do this fun summer activity either inside or outside the house!

5 Fun Things To Do With Kids at Home

Trying to keep them entertained at home? In between being homeschooled and the confinement, it's time to get creative and plan some good old-fashioned family fun. If you’ don't know what to do with the kids, we’ve got some ideas to get you started with Bronzery.

Create a Treasure Hunt

When the kids start to feel bored up - it's time to send them on a treasure hunt. You can organize it either in the house, in the backyard or around the neighborhood (at a social distance!, of course) It is easy and fun to do with an n old piece of a brown paper bag. Draw the map, leave the clues, the treasures and let the kids find the fun!

Make FLOAM

Kids love FLOAM! Here is a quick recipe on how to make it.


FLOAM Ingredients:

  • A small bottle of glue
  • 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of saline solution 
  • 1/2 cup bean bag filler.

FLOAM instructions:

  • Pour the glue into a bowl
  • Add the baking soda and water
  • Slowly add the saline solution a few teaspoons at a time, mixing in between
  • Mix and then knew, adding more saline solution if needed
  • Add beads and knead until fully mixed

Read - with a twist! 

If you are having a hard time getting the kids to read more books, shake things up with a story bag!

Fill up a paper bags with random items like a rubber duck, a toy, a doll, etc... (basically anything you have handy) Then get the kids to tell YOU a story, by pulling the items out of the bag, one at a time. This is one story that never gets boring, because it’s changing all the time!

Make your home a family restaurant!

Have the kids plan the menu, set the table, help with the cooking, makeup menus, even play the part of waiter/waitress - taking your order and adding up a “bill,” even although everything is of course - on the house.

Have older kids? Teens might like to turn tonight’s dinner into a cooking show they can video and share with the family or on social media.

Make a bird feeder

As school ramps up at home, you should look for ways to make learning fun for your kids. Now’s the perfect time to get outside and explore nature with DIY bird feeders. Kids can make this project with old milk cartons. To get started, cut a hole in the milk carton, clean it out and add birdseed, sticks on the outside, and decorate. Then place the bird feeders outside and watch for little visitors!
