Family Matters: Summertime Fun


Summertime FunSummers are a toddler’s best friend. Nothing is more fun than all the adventures you can have while traipsing about town with your toddler.

Splash pads are so much fun for you little one. Put toddler in a swim diaper, invest in a swim shirt to help protect them from ultraviolet rays, and prepare to have a great time. Splash pads are fun because there is no deep water. They can usually run in and out of jets of water at their own pace, and they have more control over how wet they get. They can even stay cool, and they have a good time from the periphery of the action if that’s their personality.

The local zoo or aquarium is a great place to visit with your toddler. If they enjoy your first visit, invest in a season pass for many memorable hours with fabulous animals.

Check out story time at your local library. Aside from developing a love of literature, story time can help you and your little one make some new friends, possibly learn some new crafts, and engage in group activities together.

Check into other group classes like music lessons, gym or yoga classes, or swim instruction. Your toddler will learn socialization skills and have a lot of fun while learning a new skill.

Plant a garden or grow a few potted vegetables with your toddler. Involve him in the process from beginning to end, and let him eat the fruits of his labor.

Visit playgrounds outside of your neighborhood. Your little one will like new scenery, and you will both make new friends.
