100 Days of Summer Fun – CSRA Kids
We love summer!! Cue the pool, beach, the grill and cut up the watermelon. We know that summer can be overwhelming at times. Especially when the kiddos start using the B – word. *Eye Roll* Bored. So here at CSRA Kids…we wanted to give you some summer inspiration!
We are issuing a 100 Days of Summer Fun challenge! We have compiled a list of super fun activities for you to do with the kiddos this summer. Some are cheap, some are free, some require a drive and some things you can do right at your own home. The list is just a guideline!
