You don’t have to go somewhere expensive to get a “wow!” 
Creative fun as a family is more about the heart behind it than the “where.” (And let’s be honest: Kids fight at the beach. And Disney.) 
So we’ve compiled pages of ideas for an unforgettable summer reminding your kids they can have fun in their own backyard. We capitalize on kids’ natural creativity and inventiveness. (We won’t mention they’re also picking up confidence, problem-solving, and teamwork.)
Bonus for Mom and Dad: We also know big fun ≠ big prep. Most of these activities can be done with minimal hands-on time for adults—so you can jump into the fun exactly as much as you hope to.
