Summer is often filled with outdoor parties, warm weather and no school. Unfortunately, the arrival of summer can bring stress for many parents as they search for ways to keep their children happy, healthy, engaged and safe without breaking the bank.
Listed below are a few simple - and inexpensive - summer activities that you and your children can do together this summer:
- Make homemade frozen treats. Cooking together is a great way to create memories that will last a lifetime and to instill healthy habits in your children.
- Go berry picking. Many berries come into season in the summer. Take your children to your local berry farm to pick your own delicious strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.
- Go hiking. Enjoy the summer weather and your local scenery, and get some exercise by taking a family hike at your nearest hiking trail.
