Summer Family Fun Activities

summer series CollageThroughout this summer I worked with a group of bloggers to give our communities fun activities to do with our kids throughout the summer months. Summer is fun and carefree, but we all know as parents at times we are at a loss of how to to keep our children entertained and happy. Each week we came up with some pretty amazing ideas that I personally have used again and again to keep my 9 and 7 year old busy and me HAPPY!

It was hard, but I choose 1 fun activity from each blogger that I loved. Even though this is our last week for the Summer Family Fun Series we still have a few more weeks left of summer. I hope you enjoy these activities as much as we have.
