Fight Boredom with Field Trips
Visit your zoo
Check into season passes to the zoo - sometimes they are just a bit more than the one day admission. One thing I love about having a season pass is we can disappear to the zoo for just an hour or two and not feel like we aren't getting our money's worth.
Get Close To Water
Do you live near the coast or a lake? Pack up for a day on the water! You can buy great sand toys at the dollar store on your way and the kids will be so pooped after a day outside that they will sleep super well for you! ;)
Slip and Slide at the Water Park
Many towns have some sort of water theme park near them... if you have swimmers this can be a great day event!
