What to do, what to do…

May 11th, 2009 by jennyonthespot

I hope for this to be the first of many posts of this nature. What is there to do with the kids around here?

The end of school is quickly approaching and if you are like any of the moms I have been chatting with, you may be asking yourself, “What are we going to do when school is out?”

Good question. Are there local activities we can do with our kids when school is out? Of course there are!

Sure, I could load you down with link after link to fun crafts to do over the summer, but I won’t. Nah. I am going to throw two links at you today so you can get those summer activity wheels turning. One link to a website with local resources for moms and families, and one link to a book written by local gals with fantastic ideas for exploring the Kitsap Peninisula. Let’s keep it simple… 

  • PNW Moms. Have you been there yet? It is a FANTASTIC resource. You can locate local play groups, mom groups, library story times, businesses with activities list their programs… There is information on the site about local parks, you can connect with other moms on the site. The options available are many. There are even activites listed for teens… This is not a site only for moms with young or elementary aged children. Take a look. Browse around. Were I a betting woman, I’d bet you’d find something there to look into!
  • Great Adventures for Kitsap Peninsula: Family Fun in the West Sound. It is in it’s 3rd Edition now. I bought myself a copy of the 2nd edition a few years back and I love it. It is a great reference and idea-giver for us Kitsap mamas — and families! I’ve copied a snippet from the Kitsap Adventures website describing the book: Filled with new information about local parks, trails, beaches, museums, and kid friendly activities all packaged as adventures and creative ideas families can do together in our beautiful Kitsap Peninsula

So there you go, families… fellow moms… A starting point to help answer that looming “summer is almost here” question, “What are we going to do???”

    Parents -
    You need to know about a fun 3 day long Water Wonders day camp to be held at Island Lake Community Center on July 7, 8 and 9. This camp is lead by Kitsap County environmental educators, Debbie Thomas from Kitsap PUD and Pat Kirschbaum from Kitsap County Surface Water Management Program. This camp gets rave reviews from campers and parents every year. Camp activities are all about water and you know that anytime you mix water and kids you get FUN! Another amazing strong point for the camp – it costs $45 for all three days. Contact Debbie Thomas, dthomas@kpud.org to register.
