Fun Summer Ideas for The Kids!If you’re feeling like you’re fresh out of ideas for ways to keep those ever- changing grandchildren entertained this summer well, you’re in luck! We have compiled a list of 5 fun ideas to do with your families this summer!

1. Set up a lemonade stand!
Make it interesting by stirring up your own lemonade and making signs to display in the yard. Let your kids pick a local charity and donate the profits or save up for something extra special!

2. Make ice cream in a bag.
All you will need for this tasty treat is two resealable plastic bags, 1 cup half and half, 2 tbsp. sugar, ½ tsp. vanilla extract, 1/3 cup kosher salt, and 3 cups of ice. In the smaller bag, combine half and half, sugar and vanilla. Place the smaller bag into the larger bag and fill the larger with ice and salt. Shake vigorously for 15 minutes and enjoy! Best of all, use your imagination for all those yummy toppings- you can’t go wrong.

3. Rent an RV and take a family road trip! 
Ready to make some amazing family road trip memories this summer? An RV is the way to do it. You can rent one on Outdoorsy (think of it as an Airbnb but for RV rentals) in just about any size or style you can imagine. The best part: many RV hosts will throw in all the camping gear your family could ever need and, for an additional fee, will even dispose of the waste after you drop it off at the end of your trip making it easy for first-timers.

4. Catch fireflies.
One of the more magical parts of summer evenings is the little blinking lights that flutter around the backyard. Gently catch fireflies and watch them glow in your hands. Add to the fun by having the kids name their fireflies before releasing them.

5. Paint flower pots and plant herbs in them. 
Break out the art kit and terra cotta pots for this fun activity for the whole family. After painting the pots, plant different herbs like mint, rosemary, oregano, and cilantro in them. Watch those herbs grow and use them in a meal to teach the kids about at-home gardening.
