Summer days can get kind of long when you’ve got little ones around, so if you’re like me, you’re going to want to get your kids outside and active. You might take them to the park to the playground, to the museum, but if you find yourself in need of some indoor activities, we have some suggestions.
Imaginative play is a great way to spend a summer afternoon with your kids. One way to do imaginative play is a puppet show. What’s great about puppet shows is that it builds self-expression, creativity and even problem solving. So, if you don’t have puppets, you can make your own. Here’s one I made out of a simple lunch sack. Or if you want to do something a little more advanced, grab an old sock and make a sock puppet!
If you’re not feeling that adventurous, that’s okay. We highly recommend Puppet on a Stick! These guys are great. Kids love them. They’re great to do a story, read a book, or duck behind the couch to do an instant puppet show. We think they’re great, we think your kids will love them too!
I hope you’ve enjoyed our recommendations for summer activities with your kids, we hope you have a creative and happy summer!
