As the only boy with three sisters, my son sometimes feels (justifiably, at times) that the girls rule the house. I polled my blog friends for their top summer activity for kids ideas that might appeal to 8-12-year-old boys. Then I went through the list with my son and had him down-select the activities he truly loved. We scheduled them through the summer and are sharing them today. I hope your kids love them as well!

  1. I can’t believe that summer is just around the corner, time does fly. You have a lot of great ideas here that I’m going to save – I always liked flying a kite (and still do) but the balancing games are new to me and look to be both educational and fun. Thanks for sharing!

  2. My daughter feels much like your son, and laments the lack of sisters quite often. We see a lot of these types of activities going on at my house.
