Activities For The Whole Family
Although you may not be able to afford a summer vacation
this year, there are no-cost, fun summer activities for
the whole family. Here are a few ideas.
Pick a tree in your back yard and lay down a blanket.
Have some lemonade and cookies, and read your Children's
Bible. Take turns reading. Invite friends and their kids
to join you. Make it a weekly event.
Gardening is another fun
summer activity for kids. Have your kids
plant their own flower garden. Talk about each flower;
how it grows, how much room it needs, and then give the
kids a title, such as Director of Water Resource (this
would be for one kid to oversee the watering of the
plants); or Director of Roots and Shoots (this would be
for another kid to oversee the weeding), etc. Also, give
your kids some watermelon seeds to plant. You never know
what may crop up.
Many, many lessons can be
gleaned from landscaping. Talk about how
God created the Earth and everything on it. Planting
vegetables and fruit can spark a conversation about how
God provides for us. Planting flowers can spark a
conversation about how God uses trees to give us oxygen
Create a Bible Story
Scrapbook. As you cover new lessons each
week with your children, create a scrapbook of your
children's interpretation of the lessons. I'm sure your
child can think of great interpretations of Noah's ark
or David & Goliath.
Fun summer activities for
the whole family can be achieved with a little
imagination and a lot of creativity.
