Summer vacation has just started and the kids are looking for stuff to do.  I have 3 children.  My son just turned 11 and my daughters are 8 and 4.  If any has any suggestions of things to do in the area let us know.  Or if somone has kids around my kids age and would like to meet for playdates that would be fun as well.  I just find it harder to amuse them once they get older.  We went to safety village yestaurday but my oldest was too big for the jeep so he was bored.

We go to the beach a lot. T loves colchester and Seacliff beaches, they both have splashpads and nice playgrounds also.


The other thing T and I do in the summer is conservation areas. We take nature walks with our cameras

Having an 11 year old and a 4 year old will be a challenge to find something that will please both of them.


A few ideas: parks, Colasanti's, bowling, swimming, camping or backyard campout.

You can get a lot of ideas for what to do at home on Pinterest. This way they wouldn't all have to be doing the same activity, but I would guess that with most of the cool stuff on there, they will all be interested.
