Summer Activities

So our summer starts on Wednesday!  I'm excited but also know that I need to be sure to have some constructive, fun, and educational activities planned to keep my older kids happy and thus the whole family happy.  I decided to put together a weekly activity that we can all look forward to and break up the week.  So once a week that we are not on vacation we have planned a fun "field trip" for the kids and I.  Here are  things we have planned:

Wednesday June 1st, Stokes Nature Center invites all ages to Nature Night on Wed, June 1st from 4p.m. to 7p.m. The theme for June is “Bugs”! Participants will play bug games, make bug crafts, learn bug facts, and go on a bug hunt. This program is free. All are welcome to drop-in; activities are ongoing. For more information: (435-755-3239) or visit www.logannature.org
Saturday, June 4th, come join us for music, fun activities, and learn about water conservation, water quality, wildlife, recycling, energy, the environment, and the Bear River Watershed. Teens and children are invited with their parents to participate in the TENTH annual Bear River Celebration and Free Fishing day from 10 am to 2 pm Saturday June 4th at Logan’s Willow Park West pond area. Pack a water bottle and sun block and enjoy free fishing, booths, activities, giveaways and prizes. T-shirts will be given out to the first 200 youth who complete the booth activities
Wednesday June 8th, Fry Street Quartet—Logan Tabernacle Concert at Noon—Think Cub Scout requirements, and amazing musical experience for FREE! (Every weekday they have Free concerts at the tabernacle at noon)

Family Information and Resource Center- 1:00-2:00 Around the World in 80 days-- The Logan Family Center is a small white building on the playground at Wilson Elementary School, 2 doors south of the Island Market, a half block from the bus stop at Center Street and 400 East. 

Providence Splash Pad-- 310 West 250 North in Providence

Logan Fire Department—think Cub Scout requirements!

Water Games in the park and making boats for the river, 

Tour of a local Grocery Store

Logan Aquatic Center

Some other ideas we had were:  
Take a bus ride adventure
Go to the zoo
Daughters of the Utah Pioneer Museum
Tour the post Office
Any others you have done or are planning on doing?  Please share in comments.
If you would like to join us on any of these adventures, please let me know and I'll give you more details.
