What are some fun things to do with a 2.5 year old in the summer?

Our son will be about 2 and a half during the summer and we are trying to think of some fun things to do... so far we have thought of the zoo, the beach, the airshow, a duck pond, OMSI, childrens museum and camping... can you help me out with some more ideas so that we can have a nice fun full summer?

  • My DS had swim lessons last year (he was 1 1/2) this year he will have personal lessons (just him & the instructor), we have memberships to the zoo & art museum, we're getting Disneyland passes, also we have him enrolled in a baby gym with other kids of his age. We also have a very nice park nearby with a lake and another with a little train & ponies to ride. I think we will have plenty to do with all of that! Your list sounds pretty good too!

  • Go to the park and have a picnic lunch and let him play on the swings. Invite some friends, moms and kids, over for outdoor activities like finger painting, running through the sprinkler or playing in a sand box.

  • we live near a college campus so its fun to walk around there when its empty. we go to the barn. going on trails is fun, they can find neat things and its a fun way to teach them about out-doors things.
