Swings and swimming: Guide to summer fun


It’s officially summer, and many children and teens have traded in their school notebooks, tablets and uniforms for sidewalk chalk, tennis rackets and bathing suits. They also have more time for exploring new activities and experiences!

This year, the Center on Media and Child Health hopes to help you make the most out of your family’s summer by offering a free Summer F.U.N. Guide, providing you with fun, exciting and healthy media and non-media activity ideas for the children and teens in your life.

The guide contains helpful tips to keep in mind when planning activities as well as specific outing suggestions based on the child’s developmental stage.

We hope you find the guide helpful and easy to use, whether on your computer, on a mobile device or printed out and pinned to a family bulletin board. Whatever your method, don’t forget the sunscreen, and enjoy your media and your summer!
