What do your kids want to do with their summer vacation? Many go to camp, visit relatives, enroll in special classes or opt to just sleep and chill. But no matter if your kids are heavily scheduled, or if their time is completely their own, summertime is a perfect time for kids to experience boredom, forcing parents to be creative.

Every summer has a story. Why not start yours here?
