Summer FREE Activities for Kids

Greetings Friends!

I thought I’d re-post this from the June GoMamaGuidance newsletter so all those links are fresh and handy… -T

With only 2 short days left of the LAUSD school year, we’re just about ready to exclaim “we made it!” Yeah. School’s (almost) out for summer! For some of you, it already is. Enjoy it while you can because this will be the shortest summer break ever. Just 8 weeks until that mid-August return. Time to dust off that barbecue, polish off some libations and celebrate the close of another school year.

Are you having a staycation rather than a vacation this summer? No worries, here’s some FREE activities for the kids to keep them busy.

Wondering what the best beaches are in LA?
