Through out my years of nannying for many families I always researched new places to go with the kids when it was 100 and some degrees outside. Luckily some of the same activities are still around.
Here are my favorite 5 summer activity ideas
1.- AZ Movie Fun, for more than 35 years, Harkins Theatres has brought back some of Hollywood's best family films to keep kids entertained and cool during the summer. Kids can enjoy a movie a week for 10 weeks, for less than $1 per film. Make Harkins Summer Movie Fun for kids an annual tradition for your family. All adults must be accompanied by children.
2.- Create , is one of the attractions from the Phoenix Science center, they have camps for Pre-K age and up and its always a great indoor facility to visit, kids can create and explore around.
3.- As you wish is a pottery place with few locations around the valley, Pick a piece of pottery from our shelves, Design, decorate and doodle, As You Wish! and In just a few days, your piece will be glazed, fired and ready to pick up.
4.- Brunswick Lanes via Linda (bowling) summer games: With the Summer Games, you can bowl all summer for one low price—and save over 90%. Shoes are included with your pass, making the summer’s best deal on bowling even better!
5.- Bass pro shop in Mesa, Kid's Night - Every Tuesday 5-7pm
Bring the kids for FREE crafts, coloring, popcorn, archery, and the fish feeding at 6pm!
