  • Do you have a little pool? My kids loved that, they are cheap at Toys R Us.

  • Does your local library have preschool storytime? Some bookstores do, too.

  • Yes, story time at Barnes and Noble is great. Look on the website.

  • check out your local parks and recreation and local libraries. Our local library has story time and craft time Saturday mornings, our local park has a little wading pools my twins love to go to.  One of my favorite summer activities with my kids is to pack a picnic take them to our local park.  They love playing in the small wading pool, hanging out with some of the other children.  It's also a nice way for you to meet people in your community.  We also love going to the beach.

  • Crafts, storytimes at libraries, parks, sprinklers. I have 3 little ones and we always keep busy. It does not seem hard to find things to do. Picnics, sprinkler days, reading, coloring and my list could go on and on.
