So, it’s already nearing the end of April and summer will be here before we know it (hard to believe with this spring weather, but it will come). In about 6 weeks, my daughter’s school year will be ending and I’m putting together ideas for activities to keep the kids busy all summer-long! I’ve been already gathering lots of information and schedules from the public library and the parks & recreation department, as well as other events going on around the area.
What types of activities are available in your area this summer, and how have you made the community aware of them? If you haven’t yet, here are some ideas:
-If you’re promoting park programs or activities, send seed packets or a seeded mailer printed with your organization’s website and event calendar. The seeds can then be planted, and be a reminder of your organization, activities or events.
-Hand out items at local schools, such as sun safety products imprinted with the hours of the community pool or animal shaped key tags along with brochures to let parents know about special activities at the local petting zoo.
–Tote bags are a practical way to communicate special programming at the library. Include a flyer with a printed calendar of events, and keep them near the library entrance.
Regardless of weather, many kids will be done with school by early June and parents will be looking for ways to keep them busy! Let them know what is going on in your area!
