Seven Ways to Spend a Summer Day


Never hear that dreaded “I’m bored…” again. Here’s a full week’s worth of boredom busters that are sure to keep you and the kids happy and happily entertained.

1. Gateway Fun Park
This is at least one day of fun, if not more! Go-karts, a golf range, miniature golf, batting cages, a kiddie train, a snack bar and an arcade promise to keep kids of all ages happy for hours.

2. WOW! Children’s Museum
This is kid territory without a doubt. Children from 15 months to 11 years will find tons of exhibits designed to be experienced with all the senses including art displays, crafts, music, dance, dress-up and lots more!

3. Water World
With 46 attractions, Water World is one of the country’s biggest water parks, offering fun for families with kids of all ages. Bring a picnic, rent a cabana and spend the entire day in the sun.

4. AMC Free Flicks
One of my favorite memories of childhood involved getting out of the heat and into an air-conditioned movie theater to watch classic kid movies. The program is a great way to spend a weekday morning for kids.

5. Butterfly Pavilion
Whether your kids are super science-y or super squeamish, bugs are always fun, and the Butterfly Pavilion offers truly hands-on experiences with bugs of all kinds. Older kids with shutterbug tendencies will love taking photos in the atrium.

6. Crackpots
Whether you sign the kids up for a camp or just drop in for a session, you and the kids can paint-your-own pottery for a memory set in stone. Who knows? The masterpieces you create might replace your fine china.

7. The Library
Your local library is a wonderful resource when the boreds set in—not just for books, which are awesome, but for story times, game nights, movie nights and more. Check with your local library for programs.
