​5 Activities to Keep Your High-Energy Kids Busy This Summer!

Looking for ways to keep your kids busy? Here are five ways to get your high-energy kiddos to burn some summer steam!

  1. Have races! Do races with your kids for about 10 minutes to burn some energy.
  2. Do an around-the-block scavenger hunt where they can get "points" for spotting things like a bunny, a kid on a bike, fireflies, etc. (Adult supervision required!)
  3. Do a "Ninja Warrior" obstacle course at the playground.
  4. Walk the dog. Or find a neighbor with a dog and walk theirs.
  5. Have a dance party on the sidewalk! Turn your iPhone up loud and get them to dance their energy away!

Enjoy the rest of summer!
