My kids are still pretty young (5 and 11 months) - and this summer I have the luxury of being off work for most of it. So I created a bucket list of things for us to do while I am still off work. We're already knocking things off the list (and adding new ones LOL) but the most important thing, we are having fun! Here's the link to the list:
My oldest LOVES to be outside, no matter what time of year, so I am sure most of his favourite activities will be outdoors. We took him mini-golfing for the first time last weekend and he loved it. His grandparents bought him his first set of golf clubs last year so we go to the driving range and heloves that. He's signed up for soccer camp for the first time this year. And we LOVE to go to the beach, especially in the mornigs before it gets crazy hot and crazy busy. So excited for summer!!

I love the idea of snail races!!
Its sounds totally gross to most people, but its actually a lot of fun- and -since snails move SLOWLY, lol- it entertains them for a while, lol.
My son loves swimming and basically just hanging out with his cousins. However, since we've moved (from IL to TN), it takes so much more effort now to let him be with family. We just spent an extended July 4th vacation with them and it was a joy to see my son have such a great time with the other little ones he's missed so much. If it's just us, we try to take him out biking and swimming at the gym.
Water balloons. They could play with those every day and not get bored, LOL!
My kids loved these when they were little, too. And of course, I loved them because I would have to help fill and tie each one AND pick up the balloon fragments in the yard before the dog got to them!
My kids loved their Intex pool or Slip N Slides.
