7 Active Summer Games our Family Loves

This game is great for keeping the kids active inside when it’s very hot outside!!  When I was a kid, I remember playing skip ball a lot.  We were shopping at Target about a month ago and did a total impulse buy!!  I’m so glad we did.

To begin, designate a place to be the “jail.” Not far away, the can should...

The kids were pretty excited to make these… especially since we had an activity lined up for the right afterward! These are super fun for playing catch in the pool or just tossing around in the yard. You could get them wet and play hot-potato or use them...
