Think Outside the Box!

On super hot days and throughout the summer months, it’s important as parents to ensure children don’t get too much exposure to the sun’s harmful rays.  On these hot days when the temperature rises, there are still a lot of ways to have fun indoors and beat the heat without camping out in front of the TV– It just takes a little planning and a lot of imagination! Here are some fun suggestions to get you started.

Build a Blanket Fort
Hand your kids some blankets, sheets, and close-pins and let their imaginations run wild! The best thing about a blanket fort is all the fun they will have inside of it. Reading a book, playing cards, or drawing pictures becomes so much more magical inside a blanket fort. Cardboard box forts are also a great activity that will keep kids entertained for hours! See the attached example on how to build your own!

Founded in 2009, Kid Ventures was the creation of Debbie & Darren Solomon.  After spending over 15 years working with children and with two little ones of their own, this duo knew exactly what they wanted in a kids indoor play facility - a clean and safe environment, creative and innovative play structures and a place where parents could enjoy a bit of down time knowing their kids were having fun in a secure setting.

  1. So much fun! My Dad used to make box houses for us when we were kids! We loved it!

    Did your store name change? I went to view it and it's now EarthKidsPlace.
