  1. I LOVE this list. With a boy at home I really need all the help I can have to keep him occupied and having fun!

    I am going to add a lot of activities to my to-do list for the rainy days we are having now!

  2. Thanks for adding our colored sand activity!

  3. Thanks for including our Water fountain and Erupting Oobleck!

  4. This is a great list. I am definitely going to be checking out these links.

  5. There is not a single thing on this list that is specific to boys. Girls like art, building, exploring, and learning just as much as boys do. There is no reason this couldn't have been titled "50 Summer Activities Kids Will Love".

    1. That's why the first sentence mentions that girls will like them too.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
