Play with sidewalk chalk.
Long Summer days allow for endless opportunities while the kids are out of school, but those unfilled hours can also leave you with unplanned afternoons that turn into chaos, or worse, whiny kids. While you don't want to overschedule the warmer months, having a list of ideas is key to keeping the "boredom" at bay. Start by writing up a Summer bucket list with your little ones, and fill it with easy activities like outdoor water play, simple backyard games, messy crafts, and cool treats. Find inspiration ahead, and if you're still searching, check out even more ways to get your kids outside this Summer.
