While many families plan trips and vacations during the summer, others stay at home for a summer staycation. Boys Town Pediatrics recommends local activities for your child and family.
Share and ask other parents and friends what they do to keep their children busy and add the ideas to your own list. Have your child compile their own list as well and begin discussing a couple of different activities to try for the week. The activity may be something your child will grow to love for a lifetime or just for a week, but either way, it will help your child learn new things and stay active.
There are so many things to do in Omaha that will keep your child active and engaged through the summer. From music venues, parks, picking up a new book or trying new restaurants, the key is to engage and explore your options. With the web always readily available, researching activities is very accessible. Visitomaha.com, among other online portals, provides timely events throughout the summer. An Omaha staycation has never sounded better. Let the possibilities began!
