There is something so wonderful about summer. Its long days and warm nights are just right for backyard barbecues, hammock story times, bike rides, baseball, a splash down in the swimming pool or a run through the garden sprinkler. With everything going on in the world these past few months, our kids need some old-school, unstructured days spent tossing a ball around, creating sidewalk chalk art, reading for pleasure and playing make-believe.
If it feels like a long time since your family has gathered to play, don’t worry. Our friends at the National Parenting Product Awards have put together this Guide to Summer Fun to help you get things off the ground. Flip through the pages for some inspiration, then turn your backyard and house into the fun zone this summer.
