Screen free summer activities are needed by so many moms, so that’s why I wrote this for you! Summer is coming, my very favorite season. I loved summer pool days as a kid and I love making summers with my own kids extra special. First and foremost though, I want to be honest, I am not the best at limiting screen time for my kids and I’m totally guilty for using the TV as a babysitter. Seriously, no judgment if your kids are TV junkies like mine! But if you’re wanting screen free summer activities for your kiddos, keep reading!

With all that being said, I do try really hard in the summer to watch less TV. Some days are better than others though because it’s all about balance, but that’s why I have come up with 62 screen free summer activities for you and your kids! There is something for almost every day of the summer, and this can at least HELP in the less-tv-watching-department.

Screen Free, FUN Summer Activities for Families

That’s 62 fun and screen free summer activities for you to do as a family! If you can do every one, you’ll have a jam-packed, FUN summer! But like I said before, make sure to relax too! There’s nothing wrong with having a low-key, or “boring” day when you just stay at home and do nothing. Seriously, don’t feel bad about doing nothing! In fact, experts say being “bored” is great for kids because it helps them tap into their creativity. I think it’s great to even schedule in a “boring” day and just turn off the TV and allow your kids to think of something to do on their own, play with their toys, and be a kid!
