The best part of summer, for me, has always been the ability to be outside all day long. Running around the neighborhood, poking around in the garden, reading on the porch, playing tag with neighborhood kids, playing in the hose, going to the pool, lying on the grass, making forts out of trees. Bliss.
But it’s been so hot lately that kids can’t really stay outside all day. Evening is still prime time for catching lightning bugs, but the days are just too hot and humid to be outside for long enough to have any fun.
So I thought of some things kids can do inside that still give them the learning they get from running around all day and the same freedom.
