Kids Activity Ideas to Help Fight Summer Boredom


So, it’s been about 30 seconds since school ended for Summer and the kids are already bugging me! “What can we do?…We’re bored…Waah, waah, waah!” My first response “We can do school!” Um…that usually fends them off long enough for me to come up with something fun to do.

Since I tend to focus most of my efforts on our school activities, I just didn’t have it in me to come up with some sort of summer schedule! But…thanks to Amanda Bennett, author of the popular Download-N-Go series, I don’t have to!

Amanda’s team has come up with a fun summer calendar for June, July and August 2011. Each day contains a clickable link to a fun low or no-cost activity suggestions that will help keep your children busy and engaged! As an added bonus they even include coupons for discounts on Amanda Bennett Unit Studies. The best part is that it’s totally FREE!


Click here to download!

(Note: You will be asked to signup via email and then the calendar will be emailed to you.)

Hope this helps you fight summer boredom! If it doesn’t work, bust out the math book…your kids are sure to disappear for a good hour or so ;o)
