Boredom Busters for Kids This SummerWhoever wrote the song “Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer” obviously didn’t have school-age children. Summer with kids is anything but lazy. Finding ways to keep them occupied and out of trouble is a constant struggle! Here are a few of our favorite summer boredom busters for kids.
WET AND WILD
Time to stock up on sunscreen. Yeah, maybe you’d rather stay in the AC, but sometimes you just have to embrace the season! Create summer fun and lifelong memories with a trip to the Rogers Aquatic Park, a beautiful three acre waterpark filled with neat things for the entire family! This mom's favorite part is the Lazy River!
Splashing in the sun and zipping down water slides are childhood summer classics! Plus, the promise of a repeat trip makes for an excellent incentive to behave on those long, boring indoor days.
It’s the zucchini bread of kids activities: Sneak some serious education into their summer fun! Plan regular field trips to Amazeum in Bentonville. The Amazeum has about 50,000 square feet of hands - on, interactive museum for children and families. It includes a climbable tree canopy, indoor cave, and ever evolving daily pop-up activities! It’s a fun way to stay busy indoors when it’s too hot to function outside. Even better, it’ll help keep your kids’ brains sharp and curious.
BOUNCE OFF THE WALLS
Indoor play options are popping up all over the area, if you know where to look for them. There are inflatable play places like Boingo Bounce in Fayetteville, and trampoline parks like the High Rise in Rogers and lots of arcade options, such as, Fun City Pizza and Arcade Springdale , as well as Locomotion, and Chuck E Cheese in Fayetteville for the little ones.
Let your beloved offspring run wild and burn off some energy on somebody else’s turf! You’ll have less cleanup to worry about and the kids will enjoy the change of scenery. Maybe you’ll luck out and get a few minutes of solitude while they play.
PAINT STUDIO FOR KIDS
To let out some creative energy and build up artistic confidence, your family can participate in a variety of kids painting classes. Paintings and instructions are tailored to kids’ interests and attention spans. Many kids painting classes are a family affair, with canvases and paints for Mom and Dad too.
Join us here at Pinot's Palette Springdale, every Wednesday at 11:30 - 1:30 during the months of June and July for a fun filled paint party atmosphere where your little artists can have a blast creating their own masterpieces!
Here's to the crazy days of summer!
