The kids are on summer break (awesome!), but what can you do and where can you take them to keep them busy? I'm here to help! I've scoured San Diego to find some places to take them.

Parking lots are back open to 100% capacity. Make sure you bring a face covering and keep your social distance as you enjoy "passive activites" with the kids. 


At-Home Projects:

@BusyToddler on Instagram has a lot of fun proects to do with the kids, like making bread in a bag or making name art.

Don't have a pop-up screen? Grab a white sheet! This is a favorite activity for my family and I. 


Grow a Garden


Start a vegetable garden with the kids! They'll be amazed to see their plants grow right before their eyes. Plus, you'll have some yummy veggies to use for your home cooked meals.
