Summer Survival Guide

Summer Survival Guide

School’s out, and summer in North Texas is in full swing! For parents, that means finding creative ways to keep the kids entertained without breaking the bank. Whether you're looking for activities to do at home or fun outings to explore, The Luxe Global Group has you covered with these budget-friendly ideas to beat summer boredom.


At-Home Activities

  • DIY Crafts and Art Projects: Set up a craft station with supplies like paper, markers, glue, and recyclables. Encourage your kids to get creative and make their own masterpieces.

  • Backyard Camping: Pitch a tent in the backyard for a night under the stars. Roast marshmallows, tell stories, and enjoy the great outdoors without leaving home.

  • Cooking and Baking: Get the kids involved in the kitchen with simple recipes they can help prepare. From homemade pizzas to no-bake cookies, cooking together is a fun and tasty way to spend time together.

  • Science Experiments: Turn your kitchen into a science lab with easy experiments like making slime, creating a baking soda volcano, or exploring the properties of water.

  • Family Movie Nights: Pop some popcorn, dim the lights, and have a movie marathon with your kids’ favorite films. Create a cozy fort with blankets and pillows for an extra special movie night experience.


Out-and-About Adventures

  • Local Parks and Nature Trails: Take advantage of community parks and nature trails for outdoor adventures like hiking, picnicking, and birdwatching.

  • Library Visits: Visit your local library for free storytime sessions, crafts, and summer reading programs. It’s a great way to encourage literacy while keeping the kids engaged.

  • Community Events: Check out your city calendar of events for free or low-cost activities like concerts, festivals, and outdoor movie screenings.

  • Day Trips: Plan day trips to nearby attractions such as museums, aquariums, or botanical gardens.

  • Volunteer Opportunities: Teach your kids the value of giving back by volunteering together at a local food bank, animal shelter, or community garden.


Budget-Friendly Tips

  • Pack Snacks and Drinks: Save money on outings by packing snacks and drinks from home instead of buying them at attractions or events.

  • Look for Discounts and Deals: Keep an eye out for discounts, coupons, and special offers on admission fees, activities, and attractions.

  • Utilize Free Resources: Take advantage of free resources like community centers, playgrounds, splash pads, and public pools for summer fun without spending a dime.

  • Swap and Share: Organize a toy or book swap with friends or neighbors to keep the kids entertained with new-to-them items without spending money.

  • Embrace the Great Outdoors: Nature provides endless opportunities for free and fun activities like hiking, biking, swimming, and exploring local parks and trails.
