Surviving A COVID-19 Summer With Kids

Like everything else, summer looks different this year due to COVID-19. Maybe your vacation is postponed or summer camp is cancelled and you’re looking for ways to keep your kids entertained. It’s a hefty order even during a normal summer, but so much more this year. As always, Launch has you covered with a few ideas on surviving a COVID-19 summer with kids.

1.) Take It Outside

Whether it’s a puzzle, story time, or watching Netflix, take it outside! Switch up your background & enjoy an inside activity outside.

2.) Scavenger Hunt

Create a scavenger hunt by placing items throughout the home & yard for kids to find. Parade has a great list of ideas.

3.) Indoor Camping Trip

Set up your tent or make a blanket fort! String some twinkle lights throughout the living room & pop in a movie. Don’t forget about the s’mores & popcorn. This is a fun one for the whole family to enjoy. Check out more of our ways to enjoy an easy activity with the family.

4.) Taste Test

6.) Explore Science

Try a pre-made science experiment kit or make your own experiment with a few household items. Find your next experiment on Science Fun or Science Bob.

7.) Group Game Video Chat

If you have older kids like tweens or teens this can be a great connection activity. They get to spend time with friends & play a game while social distancing. You can try Scattergories, Charades, or something simple like Tic, Tac, Toe.

8.) Drive Thru Ice Cream

Head to your favorite local ice cream spot for a sweet treat! It’s a fun way to get out & support local businesses. As Floridians, we know there are no shortages of amazing local ice cream spots.

We hope these ideas help you with surviving a COVID-19 summer with kids.
