What To Do When The Summer Blahs Hit

RealityMoms is nothing if not proactive, so we asked our moms what their favorite inexpensive go-tos are when the summer boredom hits.

School’s out (or almost out) for the summer, and parents everywhere are wondering—what are we going to do with the kids all summer. Well, RealityMoms is nothing if not proactive, so we asked our moms what their favorite inexpensive go-tos are when the summer boredom hits.

Hiking is always a nice freebie activity. We just took the boys hiking yesterday in Rocky Mountain National Park. I was actually thinking last night about what a nice, free day it was! ~ Jessica, I Dream of Naptime

We hit up the local library weekly. The kids love it. Plus, the library offers a steady schedule of free, family-oriented events. ~ Erica, 7 Little Monkeys

This is clearly not for everyone, but we love watching the bats and fireflies come out in the evening. My kids look forward to—and ask—when the bats come back in the spring after hibernation. Shannon ~ We’ll Eat You Up We Love You So

We go for bike rides to different parks and playgrounds around the area. I usually pack some snacks so we can have a picnic, too. Elizabeth Joyce

We go to the local natural history museum several times over the summer. There is a great children’s room with hands-on activities, it’s free, and it’s a nice indoor space when afternoon rain showers come through. We also go to our theater’s Summer Movie events every week. They play popular animated movies for only one dollar! Dana ~ 39ish Life

We like to go to local and state parks for walks and the playgrounds. You can make it an adventure to see how many different and new parks you can check out during the summer months! Mia ~ This Mom with a Blog

We go to the water front and hang out. We bring a volleyball and frisbee. Walk out on pedestrian bridge and watch the clouds and boats go by. Joy ~ Evil Joy Speaks

All fantastic ideas. What do you do when the summer blahs hit?

We may have been safe, but we were not unscathed. I felt the potential catastrophes around each corner. And in the shadows lurked the great What Ifs. The Could Have Beens packed themselves into each crack of my surface.Continue Reading
