Summertime Fun and Safe Outdoor Activities for Kids

Make clover chains: Weave a bracelet, necklace or crown from clover or daisies.

Picking weeds: Kids can learn what's a good and bad plant. The garden gets help and the vegetables grow better. You might have to try a couple, just as a snack.

Painting: Take a paintbrush and a bucket of water and paint the sidewalk or sit on the lawn and paint your toenails and fingernails.

Decorate a bike: Get your bike or trike ready for the big parade. Give it a bath first. Once it's clean and dry, your child can add streamers, flowers or banners.

Break out the empty boxes: One might become a car; another a spaceship. The power of imagination!

What's your family's idea of safe outdoor summer fun?
