Summertime can be so much fun but often we find our little ones getting bored. We’ve found some of our most fun activities to do at home this summer to keep the boredom at bay and those little hands and feet moving! These activities are perfect for kids to do with their sitters as well!
Pool Days At Home
Bring the pool to you! Get a small kiddie pool and all the pool toys for some fun in the sun. Some fun pool toys we’ve found this summer are the Spark Shark Fish Hunt Pool Toy, We love having these garden hose sprinkler attachments around the house for some additional fun.
Creative Chalk Play
What’s better than some summer chalk fun? Chalk in the shape of sweet treats! Get creative opening your own bakery and get ready to make all kinds of sweet treats with this Melissa & Doug® Sweet Shop Chalk Play Set. I’ll take a chocolate cupcake with sprinkles please!
Activities To Keep Those Little Hands Busy
When it comes to keeping littles busy, these hands-on activities rank amongst our favs! The creating is endless, and the learning is fun too. From bird houses to bracelets, we bet your little ones will be proud of their creations.

Outdoor Learning and Fun
One of the things we love to do with our children in the summer is plant a garden or a flower patch! Not only do we love to eat the fruits and veggies that come from it, but it is so much fun learning the process of planting and watching them grow. Our little ones love to help us take care of the plants all summer long. Each of our children has their own little gardening set just for fun! We really like these Green Toys sets because they are so durable. We use them all the time at home and at the pool and beach.
We aren’t talking about boring books here. Nope! These are fun and interactive, and children love them! Anything Usborne Books are our favorites, but the list below includes some of our all-time summer favs! We love to set up an outdoor reading spot in the cool shade and prepare to have some fun.
