School is out and our daily summer routine has started. My kids like to be kept busy during the summer so I love finding fun activities for us to do together. Summer is the time to get messy and wet and do fun outdoor things that you don’t get the chance to do in the other seasons. What kids don’t like to get wet and messy? So grab some paint and some water and get your creative juices flowing as you find fun things to do. I thought it would be fun to compile a list of Summer Vacation Activities for Kids that you can do this summer that involves science, crafts, water and all things fun!
