Summer has officially started and at-home learning has ended for many kids. Really that’s just code for: I-have-to-entertain-my-kids-for-more-hours-of-the-day. Actually in all honesty I think it’s ok for kids to be bored. That’s when they are forced to be creative. That being said, heat is real, pools may be closed, and water makes everyone happy. That’s where the water activities come in. We found outdoor water activities that are fun for all ages, provide hours of fun and help to beat the summer heat. My kids have been absolutely loving this water slide and have turned it into a full on obstacle course. It’s been fun to watch the “friendly” competition and camaraderie.
