If you want to stay busy this summer you will want to grab this printable 100 things to do this summer list. Summer will fly by when you keep active with family friendly ideas.
WHY USE A SUMMER ACTIVITIES LIST?
You may wonder why I wanted to have a printable 100 things to do this summer list. I guess it is because I have been a parent for a long time and have “endured” a lot of summer breaks.
Our summer vacations from school always start great. We are all busy working on all the things we have been itching to do all spring. BUT then time keeps clicking by and a few weeks into summer I hear those dreaded words.
I am bored. This short sentence will be spoken by one of my children before the first month of summer is over. It always happens.
Well this summer I am going to be prepared when I hear those words. I won’t have to try to grab some ideas out of thin air! This printable 100 things to do this summer list will already be printed and ready to hand out to anyone who is needing some fun filled ideas to add to their summer.
INDIVIDUAL SUMMER FUN
I wanted my giant list of 100 things to do this summer to include individual activities and group or family activities. There are times when the whole family is bored and we can do some group activities. Other times the individual can just pick some items off the list to stay busy.
Here are some of the items that work great for individuals for summer fun:
- read a book

Group summer fun is a great way to pass the time during break. There are lots of ideas that can last from hours to even days when you are with a group of people.
Here are some of the fun group summer activities listed:
