I love summer. It's a great time for fun family activities. This summer, however, the smoke from wildfires near our house have been keeping us indoors. Recently, my 11 and 14 year olds have been releasing the pent up energy from being stuck inside to make videos. So far, they've made a music video using the song "Hot & Cold" by Katy Perry, and they've also made a super cute, short thriller film with a killer teddy bear.
We've also organized their rooms, joined some other local families in a weekly "Amazing Race" game with fun challenges at local businesses and parks, have taken a couple of trips to the beach, and they're continuing their BJJ classes.
I've been trying to come up with more activities we can do, especially indoor ones as there are many days where the smoke is really bad.
What are you doing with your kids this summer?
