It's summer time and if you do not have your kids signed up for summer camp, you can be guaranteed to hear, "I'm bored," several hundred times a day. Today's kids are so hooked on electronics it is hard to get them to focus on anything else.  Here are a few ideas to kick-start some fun during the day, especially on rainy, indoor days!  

Let them use their imagination and have fun the "old school" way.  Let them play outside and play hide & seek or run around with the sprinklers on. Play slip & slide or a good old fashion game of four-square or hop-scotch.  How about Red Rover?  Does anyone remember that game? There are a lot of fun things your kids can do, it's just a matter of taking the time to steer them in the right direction. 



Things to Do ( Especially on Rainy Days)
