Have you ever wished you didn’t have to work so hard to make summer fun? Do you sometimes feel like you are a cruise director instead of a mom who still has all the real-life responsibilities? Ever Googled “Family Fun Activities Near Me”?

We have been there too.

Even while your kids take a break from school and you get a little extra pool time, summer can bring its own stress.

Yes, you heard us right. Summer can bring its own stress. But it doesn’t have to.

What if we told you that “family fun activities near me” don’t have to cost a ton of money, take up an entire day, or require sitting in hours of traffic to go far from your house?

We had you at hello, didn’t we?

Let’s explore the POWER of PLAY as you go along the way of summer, while you sip on lemonade, when you’re folding laundry, and during your summer reading logs. (Oh, you haven’t started those yet? Have no fear. We can help you with that too.)

On-the-go activities: These are best when you are waiting in line, sitting in a restaurant (waiting for food), in the car, and on the way somewhere.

Chores in summer? These are all things you can do while your kids are helping you with a task, whether it’s folding laundry or unloading the dishwasher.

Reading logs or water-logged? This may help you as your kids read BY the pool, maybe not IN it.

Scavenger hunt: This can be done just about anywhere – at the beach, in the backyard, and inside on a rainy day.
