Summer has a few more weeks left to its name and we bet your kids are starting to get bored. Understandably, they’re used to being with other kids their age 180 days out of the year. So, how do you keep your kids from becoming couch potatoes? The team at Southwestern Skate put together 12 ideas to keep your kids active in the summer. Have something to add? Let us know your family’s favorite summer activity!
- Build a homemade slip ‘n slide
- Build a treehouse
- Camp in your backyard
- Climb a tree
- Create your own outdoor movie theater
- Discover new hiking/biking trails
- Go to the roller skating rink
- Host a water balloon fight
- Jump on the trampoline
- Plant a vegetable garden in your backyard
- Play board games outside
- Swim at the local pool
All of these are awesome ideas to keep your kids entertained during the summer. When they’re outside, make sure they wear plenty of sunscreen, a wide-brimmed hat to cover their neck and ears, and polarized sunglasses to protect their eyes. These suggestions will keep your kids healthy and happy.
We won’t be surprised if your kids will literally jump off the couch when you suggest you head to Southwestern Skate. Roller skating is a fun activity that they’ll love and they’ll be getting awesome exercise. (And, if your child has a summer birthday, the roller skating rink is the place to be!) Check out our summer schedule and head to the rink today! Feel free to bring their friends, your family, and anyone else who loves a good time.
