Top 10 Favorite Summer Fun Ideas You’ll Want to Try

If you’re like me, summertime offers boundless opportunities to let loose and have fun with your kids. But that vast open time between early June and late August can also be overwhelming if you don’t know how to break it down into smaller, more manageable pieces.

That’s where Pinterest comes in. Type in “Summer Activities” and you’re greeted with the coolest, most fun ways to spend your days with your kiddos, whether they’re preschoolers or teenagers. I admit, the latter might want to spend more of those hours with their friends, but you can fill in rest of the time with quality parent-child time that they may not realize as such.

We’ve pulled together some of the Internet’s best ideas into two spots in our Pinterest account and would like to share them with you here. Our Summatime board celebrates all that is amazing about this warm season: fresh food and refreshing drinks, the hot sun revitalizing you each day and the late nights perfect for camping. The Destination Summer Fun! board is filled with activities that you and the whole family can enjoy together, or perhaps ways you can occupy their minds while you indulge in a little summer relaxation.

Here are 10 favorite ideas for summer fun:
