School is almost out for the summer and that means parents are making plans to keep the kids entertained with one of a kind summer activities.
I remember summer break when I was a little girl. My sister, brother and I would get up in the morning, eat breakfast then my mom would say, “now go play outside.” We’d spend the whole day playing kickball, riding our bikes and playing tag with the other kids on the block. And we wouldn’t go in until our mom called us in to wash up for dinner.
I did the same thing with my kids and now my daughter does it with her kids. But the four-year old is already getting into his mom’s smartphone to watch toy review videos on YouTube. Pretty soon, he’d rather be on the phone watching videos than enjoying the summer outdoors.
Nowadays, if it’s not a video game or something they can’t do from a smartphone, the kids aren’t having any of it.
Still, there are all kinds of fun things to do with them over summer break that just might take their attention away from their gadgets for a while.
For instance, you can:
Enjoy a day at the beach.
Have a picnic at the park.
Make it a movie marathon night.
Set up a tent in the backyard for a camp night.
You can make these activities sound more interesting to the kiddos when they’re involved in picking out the refreshments and snacks. For me, they can have all the juice and gummy bears they want as long as I have my DR PEPPER®!
I’ve had a love affair with Dr Pepper for as long as I can remember. It has the perfect amount of sweetness and when it’s chilled just right it goes down so smoothly!
