101 Almost Free Things to Do With Kids This Summer...in the 60's we were simply told to go outside and PLAY on most days, we went swimming in the afternoons after mama had cooked ( I never ate a sandwich lunch or fast food), we helped pick and shell peas when they were ready, we did chores...news flash parents: you don't have to make everything in life "fun".

Easy peasy.
