Keeping Growing Minds Busy–48 Summer Activity Ideas

The summer is in full effect, the kids are out of school!  I have one in school, William, and he is so used to being busy that I have had to be proactive and think of some things to do this summer.  My younger kids have a blast going along with the fun activities too!  I have spent some time on Pinterest gathering ideas.  The websites I visited most were: U Create, 101 Kids Summer Activities, 100+ Science Activities for kids and 500+ Activities for Kids. It is a great place to spark the creative side.  Today, I hit a couple of stores collecting materials for some activities this summer.  So far this summer we have had an obstacle course, water balloon fight and marshmallow shooters.
