5 Fun End of Summer Ideas for Families

Aug18

As we head into back to school time, it’s easy to feel a little sad that Summer is over and you have less time with the kids to enjoy the warm weather. Well the fun doesn’t have to stop, just because school is back in session! Now that summer is over its peak, many places offer afternoon or evening discounts through the next few months, including Funderland with our After School Special! But that’s not all, see below for more ways to keep the fun going!

Fun End of Summer Ideas

  1. Have an after school pool party. It doesn’t have to be big and fancy, just invite a few neighbor kids or school friends over for a late afternoon swim to cool off and run free after school. Make sure you have plenty of cold water and possibly some fresh fruit for snacking!

  2. Take advantage of the twilight hours from 7 – 8pm by heading over to a frozen yogurt shop for an after dinner treat, a local miniature golf course with the family.

  3. Make a summer collage. Use pictures from magazines, family photos from the summer, plus anything else your kids want to add to a construction sheet like stickers, stamps, or sentimental items like ticket stubs! Your kids will love seeing their “masterpiece” at the end, and you’ll have a fun family keepsake.

  4. Head over to Crayola.com, one of our favorite colorful websites, for fun printables for nearly every season or activity!

  5. Visit Funderland from 3-5pm (weekdays only) for our After School Special which includes half off each unlimited ride wristband. Don’t forget, we now have misters in the park to help you stay cool while you play!

Back to School Lunch Ideas

Jul29

Back to school brings a lot of excitement and changes. But one thing you may be dreading as a parent is trying to get creative with brown bagged lunches for the kiddos. Whether you have a picky eater or just want to give your son or daughter some variety, we have some great back to school lunch ideas for you.

Snacks

  • Fruit kabobs are a fun way to pack sliced fruits. Try pineapple, banana, apples, strawberries, blueberries, grapes, kiwi, and watermelon.
  • Yogurt is a great sweet treat that give your child a good dose of calcium and protein. There are lots of options including drinkable, spoonable, or squishable packages.
  • Fruit leathers or granola bars are an easy non-perishable snack for kids
  • Trail Mix also packs lots of protein and good-for-you fiber. You can make your own using nuts, dried fruit, cereal, popped corn, or carob chips.

 

Build Your Own Lunch

  • Pick a Protein:

Sliced cheese, turkey, ham, tuna, pepperoni, hummus, bacon, hard-boiled eggs, or peanut/almond butter

  • Pick a Fruit or Veggie:

Cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, sliced bell peppers, carrots, zucchini, celery, pickles, olives, or radishes.

  • Pick a Grain:

Whole grain crackers, tortillas, sliced bread, bagel slices, cooked rice or quinoa, English muffins, brown rice chips, or sweet potato fries.

  • Use small reusable containers like these mini-dippers, for low fat ranch, Italian dressing, mustard, cream cheese, peanut butter, or jelly! Making adding a big flavor even easier.

 

Lunchbox Essentials

  • Small freezer packs helps keep cold items chilled until lunch time
  • A thermos are a great way to keep hot things hot and cool things cooler. Great for soups, apple cider, mac-n-cheese, iced water, milk, or juice.
  • Kid sized utensils make mealtime easier for little eaters just like these from Pottery Barn Kids
  • Make each day a little more special with lunch love notes from Mom.

Dads Make our World Awesome

Jun12

Dad, we sometimes forget to tell you how much we appreciate you. We know you work hard, provide for your family, and teach us so many valuable life lessons. So we wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all you do.

Why Dads Make Our World Awesome:

You are an Influencer

When you encourage your kids, you make them feel strong, capable, and supported. Don’t ever forget how much your cheering means to your children.

You are Adaptable

When mom is sick, you often step into the role of Mr. Mom. We know it can be way out of your comfort zone, but you do an awesome job keeping your family’s little boat afloat.

You Keep Energy High

Although sometimes you might get the kids a little too wound up at bedtime, you have a knack for getting the kids active and burning off energy. From sports, to yard work, and all the ways in between, you get things done. And that’s get for everyone.

So thank you to all you dads who make our world more awesome. To show our appreciation, we’re hosting a Dads Ride FREE day at Funderland on Sunday, June 15th.

5 Things to do With Your Kids this Summer

May16

Now that the kids are almost out of school, it’s time to start planning your summer activities to keep them busy! Whether it’s a summer sports or art camp, playdates with friends, or relaxing afternoons by the pool, there’s lots of things to do with your kids this summer. Here are just a few ideas for you!

5 Things to do With Your Kids this Summer

  1. Host a summer party. You don’t have to have a birthday to throw an awesome summer party. All you need is some creativity, space, and sunshine. Some fun themes include a Luau Party, a Pool Party, or a Party at the Farm. Head to the dollar store for inexpensive items like hula hoops, flower leis, water toys, or hats. Don’t forget fun games like pin the tail on the donkey, pinatas, hopscotch, musical chairs, or 3 legged race.
  2. Explore your neighborhood. The Greater Sacramento Area is full of beautiful parks and trails. Take a nature walk through scenic parks like William Land Park. Make it more exciting by turning your walk into a scavenger hunt! List items like leaves, rocks, flowers, and landmark items like statues, fountains, and signs.
  3. Get fit together. Nothing brings your family closer than exercising together. It’s a great way to get and stay healthy and nothing keeps you motivated better than your kids! Plus, you’ll be setting a good example of how to be healthy and make fitness fun, not a chore. Try family friendly activities like biking, swimming, yoga, or hiking. You can even take your normal circuit training moves and tweak them for the kids. Body weight exercises like pushups, sit ups, lunges, crunches, jumping jacks, etc…are all great ways to keep the wee ones moving and having fun with mom and dad.
  4. Build a fort. Nothing makes you feel like a kid yourself than building and crawling around in a home made fort. For fantastic fort ideas, check out this Pinterest board. Pull out those blankets, pillows, cardboard boxes, flashlights, and couch cushions and get building!
  5. And of course plan a family day or playdate at Funderland. We have 9 pint sized rides for kids of all ages. We also have plenty of picnic areas, cafe treats, and attractions – perfect for a sunny summer day. So plan a family “Stay-cation” and pack in the fun at Funderland Amusement Park!
