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

7.) Group Game Video Chat

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.
