May 2019 Newsletter Round-up: 10 Things to do with your Kids

Summer is upon us and we can’t wait to start playing outdoors with the kids! Our Summers usually get booked up pretty fast, but we always manage to find time to spend some quality time with the kids.

 

 

But as much as we want to spend every waking minute with our kids, we still need a break when we come home from work. So here are 10 activities for your kids to do while you take a little breather after work:

 

1. Things to do with Dad on Father’s Day
