Remember being a kid and getting out of school for summer break? Oh, the excitement! Sleeping late, playing in the yard, family vacations. And about two weeks into the hottest season of the year, it hits – boredom. “I’m so bored, there’s nothing to do.” The summer battle cry of children.
Well, good news for parents and children alike. July is National Anti-Boredom Month. Here are a few activities to help kids and families stave off the doldrums:
- Have a backyard campout
- Plan a family game night
- Go online to take a virtual tour of a foreign country
- Check out a concert
- Go to an outdoor movie
- Go see Shakespeare in the Park
- Go to a free puppet show at Nashville Public Library
- Take a hike or go to a nature program
So, whether you’re young or old, there’s lots of stuff to do in Nashville or in your own back yard this summer. And if you find something that isn’t free and need a little extra pocket cash, Advance Financial is always here to help.
