10 Ideas for Summer Fun

Down here in Southern Louisiana we know how hot those summer months can actually get. You don’t want your kids playing outside and overheat, but they also can’t stay cooped up inside all day with you going crazy! So we have compiled a list of some ideas for indoor and outdoor summer fun!

Visit Your Local Park

What kid doesn’t like to swing on a swing or slide down a slide? Visiting your local park for the day is such an easy way to have fun with the kiddos and not shell out any big bucks for amusement rides or park food. Simply pack lunch, a few snacks, and sunscreen. Some local parks also have a water park area so on a hot day your kiddos will love to play in the water! Just make sure to bring towels and extra clothes!

Chalk Up the Sidewalk - ASKE

Chalk Up the Sidewalk

Kids love to color and why not give them a bigger mural? You can buy chalk at Walmart or Target for only a few bucks! Let them fill the driveway and sidewalk with their creative drawings to show the whole neighborhood. Introduce them to your childhood memories and draw a hopscotch board! They’ll love playing the game and you’ll love seeing the smiles on their faces.

Hold a Car Wash

Park your car in the driveway and let your kids give it a good scrub with a pot of water and sponge or with the garden hose. Get the whole family involved for added fun! They’ll stay cool in the summer’s heat and you’ll have a clean car!

Have a Water Balloon Fight

Having a water balloon fight is an awesome way to get friends and neighbors involved! If your kiddos are too young/small to participate in the water balloon fight, get a kiddy pool, fill it with water and balloons and let them pop the balloons with their hands; they’ll have a ball!

Fishing

Teaching your kids, or a friend, how to fish is easy fun! It’s an easy way to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with friends and family all while learning a new skill! Plus you may catch some good dinner for that night.

Lemonade Stand - ASH, ASKE

Set Up a Lemonade Stand

There is nothing wrong with teaching your children a good work ethic at a young age. Just get them a table, couple chairs, a sign and lemonade! They’ll have a blast trying to sell the neighbors lemonade and they’ll earn a little bit of cash while doing it.

Visit a New Town for a Day

Visiting a new town for the day is an easy way to give the kids a new and different environment to explore without having to take a long road trip. Look up historical places in the town and local restaurants and shops to explore.

Build a Fort in the Living Room

Growing up we all used to make forts in our living rooms. Now it is your turn to teach your kiddos how to make the perfect living room fort! Drape some old sheets over kitchen chairs or your couches. Put some sleeping bags and pillows inside and you are set! Eat dinner, watch movies or tell spooky stories! Whatever you do in your living room fort will sure to be some amazing memories!

Visit a Fire Station

What kid hasn’t dreamed about riding on top of a firetruck? Reach out to your local fire station and ask if you can come visit. Your kids will have a blast climbing on the fire station and possibly dressing up in a fireman’s suit!

Neighborhood Game Night

Designate one evening a week for some friendly multifamily competition (think kickball, softball, and capture the flag). Keep things fair by designating a different parent to ref and dividing into new teams each time, like dads and daughters versus moms and sons. This Neighborhood Game Night is sure to become a tradition!

All these activities are inexpensive and a sure way to make the summer much more fun!

Gift’s For Mom

Moms tend to spend lots of time shuttling the kids to school and practices, commuting to work and doing every day errands. Even a stay-at-home Mom is probably in her car right now! So since your Mom spends so much time in her car, what better way to say “You’re the best mom in the whole world” on Mother’s Day, than giving her some awesome gifts for her car! We have compiled a list of some things you can gift to your specular mom on Mother’s Day.

Act of Service         

Chances are there is dirt on the floor and crumbs stuffed between the seats in your mom’s vehicle. She probably already knows this but with her busy schedule, when does she have the time to detail it? So on Mother’s Day, take your Mom’s car and detail if for her! You can either pay someone to else to detail it, or you can gather the kids and make it a family event. Either way, we know she will appreciate a clean car!

So if you’re thinking about detailing her car at home, here is some items that might come in handy.

  • Armor All 4-Piece Complete Car Care Kit
  • This kit comes fully equipped with Armor All Ultra Shine Wash and Wax, Armor All Original Protectant and tire foam for that finishing touch. This car cleaner kit also comes with 25 glass wipes for windows. Simply use the wipes, sprays and cleaner, to wash and protect a car or trucks’ interior and exterior.
  • You will also need brushes, microfiber towels and a cleaning mitt. You can purchase all of these at your local car care store or online!

Armor All Complete Car Care Kit

Tablet Holder

Help mom keep the kids entertained during the long and even the short car rides. She won’t ever have to hear the kids complain that their iPad dropped on the ground when they can’t reach it. Just simply attach the tablet to the base, put your kid’s favorite show on and get ready for a peaceful car ride. And if mom wants to catch up on her shows while the kids are at practice, she can just sit back and relax until the kids are done.

ASKE - Tablet Holder

Washer Heater Windshield

If mom is constantly running around chances are her windshield has battled dirt, bugs and rain. With the heated windshield washer, her windshield will be looking clean and spotless during every drive. If she has somewhere to be early in the morning, this windshield will defog in no time so she can be on her way to drop the kids off at school or go to work. For more details about the Heated Washer Windshield, call us at (855) 981-1838 or stop by at All Star Kia East located on Florida Boulevard.

Remember, Mother’s Day is about spending time with your mom and telling her how much you appreciate all the things she has done and will continue to do for you. Regardless if you are able to get your Mom something or not, she will enjoy spending time with you! So All Star Kia East would like to say a big thank you to all the awesome Moms out there!
