Don’t have kids of my own, but…When I was a kid we went to a public swimming area at a nearby lake several times a month. It was only a couple of bucks for a carload. Mom packed a lunch and we would spend the better part of a day there.Do you have a community swimming pool nearby?
Check out your local library, they may have summer reading programs or other learning activities. Or, justgoing tochoose books and getting out of the heat and into air conditioning. Picnicing at the local park, frisbee, playgrounds, etc.
Out in the country we had a creek nearby and we’d go down there and catch crawdads and play in the water. We also took walks in the woods. We camped out in the yard and cooked on a campfire.
Check local paper to see if there are any free activities such as parades, festivals, county
fairs. Also, many museums, botanical gardensand zoos have free days. If there are any in your locality just call and ask.
Family bike rides. I’m sure you’ll get tons more suggestions on this group.
