Summer is officially here! Which is exciting and also daunting in a way… because now your kids have NOTHING to do all summer. They’re bored, you’re pulling your hair out – and the heat is beating down. I get it. You love your kids but spending to much time with them is rough 😉
Here are EIGHT activities that’ll keep your kids occupied this summer, so you can have some quiet time.
1.) Get them involved In Summer Camp
If you’re a working parent/couple with young kids it can be stressful figuring out what they’ll do or where they’ll go all day. Even if your a stay at home parent and just want some free time from your kids summer camp is a great option. Summer Camp is a great way to let them make friends, do fun activities and just try something new – and also get them out of the house for a few hours! (See Here)
2.) $1 Summer Movies
ONE DOLLAR MOVIES. This is a steal.Movies are super fun and a great way to use up two hours of the day while escaping the Vegas heat. Showtimes are Tuesday & Wednesday around 10am and the selection of movies is great! (See Here)
3.) Desert Breeze Aquatic Center
Located at 8275 Spring Mountain Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89117 this swim park is a great way to escape the Vegas Heat and work on your tan. Prices are SUPER affordable. (See Here)
Children (Ages 3-17): $2.00
Adults (Ages 18-54): $3.00
Seniors (Ages 55 and up): $1.00

4.) The Discovery Children’s Museum
… is a classic Las Vegas activity and is SUPER interactive, and takes about 2-3 hours to fully complete. Of course if you want to spend more/less time at the museum you can. Prices are VERY affordable. Local adult/child- $12.50. (See more here
5.) Go To Gilcrease
Bet you didn’t know Las Vegas had an orchard… well we do! Head down to Gilcrease on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 7am-12pm. Check out their website here
to see what’s in season! You can pick a variety of vegetable and fruit and it’s a really fun activity for kids (and adults) of all ages. It’s also a pro way to get your kids tired for their afternoon nap… Sounds like a win-win right!?
6.) Make Smores.
Vegas Summer nights are really the only “cool” time during the season. It’s notoriously hot during the summer months. Get your kids excited for summer nights and make some good-old-fashioned Smores. This is a really easy activity if you have kids 6 or older – they need minor supervision and are able to assemble their smores themselves.
7.) Plan a Game Night
I love game nights – as an added bonus they’re adjustable for all ages. Get complicated with “Monopoly” or stick to the simple with “Guess Who.” Take the smores you made in #7 and eat them while you dominant during game night!
8.) Make a Scavenger Hunt
Planning a scavenger hunt in your home is super simple. It’s as basic as a few sticky notes :). Hide clues around the house that lead your kids to easy destinations they’ll know. Like “You’ll find CLUE TWO where your shoes go.”
Lead them to the shoe closet where they’ll find CLUE THREE “You brush your teeth here.” At the end of the game have something small and silly hidden.
And maybe you’re a parent working from home and now your kids are with you while you’re trying to work your normal schedule. We understand how difficult this can be – and also how hard it can be to stay focused and motivated to get your job done. Well – here’s your solution. We have a few really affordable office spaces for lease. They’re small, easy to move into – and we have flexibility in our lease signing options. Maybe it’s time to get an office space away from home and work by yourself for a few hours. Check them out here.
