Involved Activities 

These activities are still incredibly fun, but may need more parent involvement and attention to make sure everyone is safe, while having a good time. Some of these activities may even require assistance from a professional or training. 

  • Plant a garden
  • Make a bird feeder 
  • Rock climbing
  • Tie Dye
  • Science Experiment 

Remember to choose activities that your family will most enjoy! Not everyone enjoys the same things. If you need, have each person in your family choose one activity they want to do during the summer. Then make sure that each chosen activity happens, if there is time for other activities throw them in the mix too!
