30 Free Activities for the Summer Holiday

Do the kids say they’re bored? A variety of free options to alleviate boredom

Though going on summer vacation means taking time off from school, it doesn’t mean there is total freedom and that freedom has no rules. In every home, even during the summer vacation, rules of behavior are defined such as hours of returning home from parties, bedtime and the amount of money spent on various pastimes.

Part of the responsibility for what to do, when and how much lies with the children and the list of free activities can help deal with “I’m bored” and save costs.

Share the list with your kids.

  1. The sea is free, and so is the neighborhood park.
