Most kids are pet lovers. Take them to a nearby petting zoo and let them feed their favorite animals. They don’t need to see lions and tigers to be entertained; kids can spend hours watching animals they have seen in their storybooks.
9. Join community park activities
Community parks provide a variety of activities, especially during summer season. The best way to experience the fun is to enroll everyone in the family for various activities like arts and craft, music and tennis lessons. This way, their summer will be more productive and insightful.
