Summer Family Fun by The Broward Tutor

Got the summer doldrums? Need a pick me up? Sick of making forts and doing jigsaw puzzles?
Get everyone out of the house for a while!

Here are some great summer family fun suggestions both close to home and fun to do. You can document your escapades by keeping a journal that includes photos and observations from your family members. Your kids will enjoy the memories as they grow up and look back at it!

The beach is my #1 favorite activity in the summer. It’s so quiet and relaxing. You can even bring a field guide. Creating a replica of a local mammal, bird, reptile, or amphibian in the sand can be a terrific family experience! My second favorite is the library. There are so many summer reading events and activities for all ages, including:  arts & crafts, chess tournaments, cooking classes, magic shows, movies, jewelry making, game days, and book clubs. Check your local library for a schedule at
