Summer always had a magical feel growing up. It was a time of freedom. Freedom from schedules, freedom from homework, freedom from routine. Now that school is out have you thought about how you're going to keep the kids busy for 3 months? Even if you don't have kids in school summer is still a great time for people with or without kids, young and old and everyone in between to make memories. It's a chance to get out of the house and have some fun. Here's some ideas to get your summer started right!

  • Go for a walk and take some pictures.
  • Window shop in your local downtown area.
  • Make something! Sand and paint an old cabinet, paint a mural outside, go on a nature walk and make a collage.
  • Make a lemonade stand with your children or grandchildren. It's a great way to teach them responsibility and how to be money savvy!
  • Have a garage sale and make some extra shopping cash!
  • Have a bonfire and make s'mores.
