8 of the Best Summer Activities for Kids (OMG)

After school is out, parents start looking for summer programs for kids. This is understandable, because you want your kids to be active and not complain of being bored.

Kids Summer Activities
I have discovered some of the best kids summer activities that you and your children will enjoy. They are as follows:
1. Norfolk Farm  Located 3637 Morrice Road, Webberville, Michigan 48892
The great thing about this farm is that you seemingly go back in time. You will see a post office from the wild, wild, west. They offer summer camps, horse back riding, wagon rides, birthday parties, and much more.
2.  Paint Ball  Located 4403 Clio Road, Flint, Michigan 48504
I Thought Paint Ball was just for adults, but I discovered that children can play too. They offer birthday parties and it is a place for family fun. Get a little paint on your clothing don't worry it is washable.

3. Splash Pad,Creasey Bicentennial Park, 1505 Grand Blanc Road, Grand Blanc, Michigan

The Splash Pad in Grand Blanc, Michigan is a place that is very inexpensive to visit. It is open from 9 am -5 pm Children just love this. There are benches on the sides where the parents can sit to observe their children. The great thing about the splash pad is that unlike a swimming pool, it is water squirting out of various outlets on the pads. It is an outdoor area that you may want to consider during the summer months, especially on those really hot days. There is an area where parents can sit and observe. Children will love the water spouts and the fact that they can control when the water comes outs to splash them. Prices are reasonable with $2.00 for residents and $3.00 for non-residence.
It is located at 10407 North Fenton Road, Michigan. 8 am to 5 pm. Day camps are awesome. Activities may include, brushing the horses, hiking the nature trails to do bird watching, group activities to include relay races, a visit to the reptile center, and much more.
5. Zehnder'sSplash Village, 1365 South Main Street, Frankenmuth, Michigan 48734

Zehnders Splash Village is a great family outing for those that like the water. Whether you are in the Splash Park or the Atrium Park, you can have hours of fun. Here you will see water geysers, story tube slides, dumping baskets and much more. This indoor facility is fully staffed with lifeguards.  The indoor pools have warm water. There is also an outside pool area too.  You will need to call to confirm pricing for a 2-day get away, but packaging includes Chicken Dinner at Zehnder's Restaurant, 1 Large Pizza, breadsticks, 4 sodas and breakfast each morning at the Elf Hollow Cafe. I have had the Chicken Dinner at Zehnder's and it is delicious. Their stollen bread which is like a fruit cake is pleasure to your palate.

6. Wilderness Trail Zoo, Located 11721 Gera Rd Birch Run, Mi 48415 

This is a small petting zoo, but quite nice. They have food available to feed the various animals. I love the hands on area for petting the animals. Feed stations to feed the animals are located throughout the zoo. I discovered this zoo one day while on my way to Bronner's in Frankenmuth.

7. Lion Country Safari, 2003 Lion Country Safari Road, West Palm Beach, Florida

This is an amazing Safari. You will be able to walk through and see many of the animals. Even touching and feeding them. The Giraff shown in the cover page of this article was very friendly and loved for anyone to feed him. Another part of this safari that I liked was the one that you would drive through and view the animals. This is the one where you definitely do not want to get out of your car until the tour is finished.

8. Flint Public Main Library, located at 1026 E. Kearsley, Flint, Michigan 48503
You definitely do want to take advantage of the many promotions at the Flint Public Library. Most of these events are FREE. Some of the events will include planting a flower, storytelling on the lawn, family concerts, and much more. What are some of the summer fun activities that you do with your kids?
