Summer Fun: Plan for Summer 2010

My plan is to keep the kids busy!  My step-son will be here in July and I don't want him to get bored.  One of the challenges I need to address is finding age appropriate activities which 2, 4 and 13 year old children can participate in and have fun.  We're planning to take a camping trip one weekend in July and we also have our District Convention one weekend.  I'm looking for weekly activities for the kids.  So here's a run down of some things we might be able to do over the next two months:

Free Movies provided by Regal Cinemas (check your town for listings)
Tellus Science Museum - Free admission 1st weekend of every month (Cartersville)
Georgia Aquarium (Atlanta) Purchased Mommy & Me tickets earlier this year (woo hoo!)
Noah's Ark (Locust Grove)
Cochran Mill Nature Center - hiking and picnicking near the waterfalls
Bowling - check out specials, you can bowl for $.99!
Welcome All Park - swimming
Adams Farms or other farm for Blueberry picking
Skating - Fayetteville or Douglasville

I don't know if we'll do all of these things but at least I have a list I can check and see what we can do or what they might want to do.  It looks like most of these places have a variety of activities for children of all ages.  

I'll share what we do under my new "Summer Fun" button.  Isn't it cheerful!?!

Do you have any suggestions for our area in Georgia?

I had the same problem w/ my girls:) One is nine and one is two-- I took them to Jim Tanner lake and let them play on the beach and I also took them to Midtown Waterpark in Carrollton, it has a good mix of age range options and a ton of lifeguards (reassuring for me:) ) Both of them were fairly inexpensive. Let me know how it goes.. and YES I adore your new summer fun logo;)

Have a great one!

I don't know if your area has it but try www.kidsbowlfree.com it is a site where you can sign the kids up for FREE 2 games of bowling per DAY all summer long. It's not a scam we've been bowling 5 times in the last 2 weeks. You do have to pay for shoe rental. And for $25 you can sign up 4 adults to bowl all summer long too. It's just a one time $25. It's a great program.

Sadie and I did the free admission to the Children's Museum downtown and it was fun, but be prepared to wait for 2 hours in line so if you go, bring snacks/water etc. It's the second Tuesday of each month.
