One of your kid’s favorite parts of summer, besides no school, is hanging out with the babysitter. They’re like extended family that help your kids grow and develop into their own person. While your home is a fortress of solitude, where you lay your head down, etc., when you’re at home for extended periods of time, it can get boring. To help you and your babysitter keep the summer active and fun, we’ve compiled a list of local activities to spice up the agenda.
This activity is fun because you can do it at home and teach them about giving back simultaneously. MUST Ministries has a summer lunch program that encourages kids to make a sack lunch for children who receive a free or reduced-price lunches during the school year. A sack lunch includes a sandwich, sweet or salty snack, fruit and a juicebox. It’s a great way to teach them to share what they enjoy with others and the importance of supporting our community.
