Squashing Summer Boredom

Summer Festivals

Along with summer come fun festivals throughout the country. Did you know that the teeny town of Spivy's Corner, North Carolina holds an annual Hollerin' Festival, where a contest is held to determine the screamer with the most style? In Wisconsin, citizens of Prairie du Sac are challenged to see who can throw cow dung the farthest. You may not find a festival quite as wacky in your local area, but there is sure to be some sort of festival nearby. Take the whole family for a summer celebration.

Take a walk

Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. Summer weather doesn't last year-round, so take advantage of the balmy breezes and head out for a stroll with your child. Leave your cell phone at home and enjoy the day. Consider this a chance to chat with your child and find out what is happening in his life.
