Every generation feels like they were the ones who did summers the right way. Some played outside from sunrise to sunset.Advertisement

Others roamed the neighborhood in search of entertainment. What we can all be sure of is that Gen Z and Gen Alpha aren’t having the same experiences.

Look, I’m not knocking what childhood is today. Technology has brought us so many things that were once beyond our wildest dreams. We all want our kids to have the best of the best.

For many families, this summer will be different. Social distancing and continuing concerns over illness transmission will keep many families closer to home and in smaller groups.Advertisement

Kids will quickly beat video games. Their eyes will tire of staring at screens. Eventually, they’ll whine about being bored.

This summer is a great opportunity to pass some of your childhood favorite summer activities on to your kids. It’s a great way to bond and keep them busy with siblings and friends as parents tend to other responsibilities. Here are some throwback ideas for summer fun.
