21 Fun Things to Do With Kids This Summer

By  | Last Updated:  

Have you made a bucket list for your summer activities yet? I’m sure you’ll find fun things to do with kids on this list.

You’ll see ideas for field day games, an outdoor color match game, games to play with pool noodles, a pool noodle water wall, and water baseball.

Kids will have fun painting with bubbles, foam, paint filled eggs and sidewalk paint.

Learn how to make giant bubbles, rainbow snake bubbles, a bubble pool, crayons, ice chalk, fireworks in a jar, window art, polka dot slime, and kitchen volcanoes.

Make a tin river–or a rain gutter will work–and race boats made of ice cubes or soap.

This is going to be the best summer yet!
