Make this summer the best one yet for you and your kids

Already planning on ways to beat the heat this summer? There are so many awesome things you can do with your kids to stay busy and keep cool. Check out these fun ideas:

Join the Club

Check for kids’ clubs at your local library, community center, or college. You’ll be surprised at how many opportunities are out there, especially in urban and suburban areas. Why not stay cool with your kids while getting into fun new hobbies?

Get Away

If the summer equivalent of “cabin fever” has you down, improve your outlook and your kids’ dispositions by taking a quick weekend trip. You don’t have to break the bank or take time off of work to have a really special weekend together. Head out to camp for a night or two or take in the local culture in another town, exploring just for fun as you stay cool with your kids.

Freezer Fun

Get your kids active in the kitchen while improving the quality of dessert time this summer. Use fresh, local produce to make amazing and beautiful popsicles with just a few dollars and some ice pop molds. Try for some funky, unusual flavor combinations to mix it up. Definitely one of the tastiest ways to stay cool with your kids!

Stay Hydrated and Learn Science

Want to do something fun and interesting—all while learning about science? Check out a homemade water bottle recipe. Your kids will love making these amazing, edible “bubbles” of water all year-round.

Back to Nature

If it’s hot where you are, get outside in a beautiful setting to enjoy nature. Events like the Meadowlark Nature Festival, a five-day event near Penticton Lakeside Resort featuring fantastic programs for kids, will entertain your whole family while getting you outside in amazing weather.

Whether you live where summer is a welcome relief after a long, icy winter or where summer is months of miserable heat, there are plenty of ways to make summer awesome and stay cool with your kids. We can’t wait to see you here!
