Summer breaks typically last a few months, and it can be hard to keep your child busy enough that they don't drive you or themselves crazy. Family vacations and day trips can become expensive and take a lot of time to plan. So the question is, how can you keep them entertained constructively? Ideally, you want your kids to learn new things and grow during their summer break. If you're not proactive about it, they might decide to play video games or watch TV all summer.
