It has been so hot here that I have had to find indoor activities. We have a tumble fun place in our mall that serves crawlers up to ten. As far as outside, when it is nice we go to the local park and pool. We also have picnics.

I resently had all of my nieces (5 of them) over for a big slumber party. we baked, had a fasion show, decorated hats with our names on them, made our own henna tattoos, played twister, went to the movies, made homemade pizza, went to the pool, played in the sprinkler, had slip n slide races, had a water balloon fight, a water gun fight, and the biggest hit of all: a shaving cream fight! They talked about it for weeks! You add a few cans of shaving cream to a slip n slide and kids LOVE it!

Have your own "Cooking School". Last year my 8 and 10 year old helped create the dinner menus and fix them for the entire week! They loved it and keep asking to do it again this year. You just have to have patience and teach them to clean up afterward too!

Much depends on the age of the child/ren, the weather, and really brainstorming for what is available in your area. Not every day out has to include laying out serious cash. Try jotting a list of things, spendy and not, at home or not, of things you enjoyed as a child. Finally,send a shoutout to groups you visit to arrange a play day. Good icebreaker.

The backyard can be an awesome place to play with a few friends over. A waterhose or sprinkle, some water balloons,
a ball or balloon to throw around, maybe make a card board
game of toss, a large jug of lemonade, some chips and inespensive sandwhiches a couple tmes a week you'll be famous as a wonderful mom all the kids want.
One of my favorites with my 15 month old right now is going to the park! We try and name everything we see and still have fun on the swings and slides :) We always go early in the morning or late in the evening when it's not so hot or busy :D Home for homemade popsicles and maybe a dip in the baby pool out back :D

Here the Lake Waccamaw State Park has a program all summer. Every weekend there is are different activities that get you and your child outdoors and learn about the wildlife. For father's day, my son, husband, and I went on a Paddle Your Dad canoe trip up the Big Creek and even a little way out into the lake. We have learned about snakes from a professional snake handler and have searched for evidence of turtles. It is free and alot of fun.

i think a fun thing to do is my kids love water baloons and the prinkler. i Hook them up everytime my step kids come over they want to play out side so i let them play in the sprinkler. and water guns. I cant stand for them to stay in the house and watch tv, all day long they have to go outside and play but only in the water so they dont get to hot. My youngest he is mentaly handycaped. so i make sure he has a lot of water so he dont get to sik on me. But kid need to have fun and during the summer they need water fun. So take them outside and spray them down. lol. They will have fun

Here's a fun one! Put some fun sm. rubber toys inside of balloons then fill them with water like a regular water balloon and freeze them. When ready Kids pick what ever color balloon they want, peel away and wait for their price to appear. All ages like this one.
just bought the kids a small pool. it isn't much but the 3 of them can fit in it and it keeps them cool. i also like taking them to the museums. we are saving to take a weekend trip to the beach at least once before the boys go back to school in august.

I agree with Schyla: Stargazing. We have a spring free trampoline and we've even had a "camp out" on it, with lots of pillows, blankies, and stuffed animals. Watching the stars with the 5 and 3 year old for 20-30 minutes without any talking feels like nothing short of a miracle, even when we don't see a shooting star.
