If you have kids, you are probably always trying to figure out what you can do with them in the summer. No parent likes to hear "I'm bored" for the millionth time and there are only so many times you can tell them to clean their room or bathroom every time they tell you that they are bored. That means that you have to come up with something to do, for at least some of the time.
Backyard Summer Camp
One thing you can do is to set up your own summer camp in your backyard. You can do all kinds of things if you are setting up your own backyard summer camp. That can include setting up obstacle courses or giant game boards. You can put in a game board like a tic tac toe board in a couple of ways. One is that you can use spray paint on your grass. Just paint the area you are using to set up the board and repaint it after you mow your yard or it rains.You may want to work with other parents, especially the parents of your children's friends. If you do work with other parents, you can arrange to do one day at each house or one week. That way each parent gets a break during the day so that they can get errands done or just take a breath.
Another thing you can do is to rent a home out for the summer or for some part of the summer. The reason that you would want to use a summer rental is that it can be less expensive than the same amount of time in a hotel, especially if you need to have plenty of rooms or you want to bring a pet. Renting a cabin or a house will also give you a home base. You can go out and do things like visit the beach or go to museums and then go back to your house and unwind. Having that space will allow your kids to be able to decompress from the activities better because they don't have to worry about being quiet for people in a hotel. If you are going to rent a house or cabin, you will want to make sure you set it up as soon as possible so you can get the property you want.
