Fun Summer Activities for Kids


With summer in full swing, why not get out of the house and make some new memories with your family? Check out these activities your children can enjoy this season. If you're looking to get your child involved in some fun group activities this summer, give Country Day Care or Magnolia Ridge Child Care Center a call. We have locations in Richmond and Glen Allen, Virginia!

Explore Nature

Take advantage of the warm weather by exploring the great outdoors. Try a family-friendly hike. For trails that are easier on the little ones, check out Belle Isle Trail or Pony Pasture Rapids trails in James River Park. These looped trails are both about two miles long. You can cool off in the river if it gets too hot. For wildlife fans, make a game out how many types of birds you can spot.

Join a City-Wide Scavenger Hunt

Get to know your city by bringing the kids on a scavenger hunt! Create your own, or try a hunt from Urban Adventure Quest, which has locations in dozens of U.S. cities, including Richmond. Starting at Old City Hall, you and the family can spend an afternoon learning about Virginia's art and history while solving fun clues!

Plan a Picnic at Home

Sometimes, you don't even need to leave your own backyard to create a little adventure. Lay a blanket on the grass, make some sandwiches, and enjoy the outdoor dining experience! You can even let the kids have a hand in creating the menu.

At Country Day Care and Magnolia Ridge Child Care Center, we don't just look after your children. We offer a variety of educational and enjoyable activities, including dance, art, Spanish, music, and science classes!
