Summer Family Fun and Leisure
When my kids were young, they couldn’t wait for that final bell that happily dismissed them from school for summer holiday. They had big plans that would easily consume a 3 month vacation… and more. Or so they thought. But, you guessed it! they were bored silly 3 weeks later.
After visiting every City Park, Movie Theater and City Swimming Pool, they were ready to be entertained and thought Mom should be the entertainment in our own back yard. I’m not talking about my four kids only, I’m talking my own 4 children +2 friends each. That’s about 12 kids or thereabouts, all summer long, in-and-out of our home and back yard at different times during the day.
You guessed it, I was the only Mom who worked at home on the entire block, so our house was the summer hangout for the others.
Warm up that back yard Pool before the kids dive in! and if you need a smaller, portable pool, there are a few of those too–
I can tell you right now, I wouldn’t have seen my kids for 8 hours if they had had this Super Water Balloon Maker 40 years ago. Somehow, it often became my job to fill the water balloons because they were having too much fun popping them on everyone including me! With this super way to fill Water Balloons, I think I would have bombed a few more of them than I actually did back then. 🙂
A pool isn’t the only way to have fun in the summer time though, there are many super duper indoor toys as well, not including all those new Video Games created every month, it seems sometimes– And if you’re traveling with friends or family for a distant vacation, there are many handheld devices, including these that are less expensive but still lots of fun.
