Summer can be a great time in your child's life .

Are your kids off school for the summer? During their summer break, kids often get bored. You can fight the boredom without breaking the bank.

Here are some fun kids summer activities any child will enjoy.

Water Play: Most children love water. You can set up a small wading pool or sprinkler and let your child enjoy one of summer’s simple pleasures. Provide buckets or cups, spoons, small toys, balls, and other objects that are fun to play with in the water.

Go-Karting: Kids and adults of all ages enjoy go-karts. Visiting Pole Position Raceway allows anyone tall enough to race around an indoor track and stay cool in the heat of summer.

Dance Party: Another thing kids love is dancing. Crank up the tunes and have a fun dance party.

Arts and Crafts: Indulge your child’s creative side with arts and crafts activities. Depending on your child’s age, you can set up paints, coloring, drawing, or any other fun activity that you and your child may enjoy.

Take a Hike: Pack a lunch and some water bottles, lace up your hiking shoes, and hit the nearest hiking trail. No matter where you live, you are likely to find an interesting trail. To make the hike even more adventurous, put together a scavenger hunt.

Camping: You and your youngsters don’t have to go anywhere to enjoy camping, set up a tent in your backyard. Bring the sleeping bags, tell scary stories, and have a fun night outside camping.

Flashlight Tag: Playing outside as it gets dark is somewhat magical. You and your children can enjoy the summer evenings by combining hide-and-seek with tag. Whoever is “it” counts while the other people hide. “It” uses a flashlight to find the hiders and when he does, he shines his light on them to tag them.

Scavenger Hunt: Set up an adventurous hunt for your child and his friends. You can use things found around your home and your neighborhood. If you are having trouble coming up with items and clues, having a neighbor help out.
