Don’t let the lure of pricey theme parks and other expensive attractions wreck your budget this summer. There are plenty of free and low-cost entertainment ideas to fill up lazy, summer days when school is out. Here are some fun activities to keep school-aged children occupied that will give parents (and their wallet) a break:

  • Complete a DIY project. Think of how rewarding it will be to see an entire project through from start to finish in a day (a bench, a time capsule, a raised bed garden?) From determining what to create, gathering the materials and the actual work, you’ll have a full agenda for the day.
  • Make a movie. Write a funny, dramatic or suspenseful script, design and construct your set, assign acting roles, create costumes and perform it all while someone films it using the video feature on a smartphone. Finish the day by having a special viewing.
  • Head to the library. Head over to your local library to check out some books or movies. Look online for a calendar of children’s events or other happenings.
  • Picnic at a playground. Find a public park with a great playground that is within a drivable distance, pack a lunch and go enjoy the day. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
  • Find a festival. Look up fairs and festivals going on in your area and see what interests you. From food trucks to music to authors to art, find a gathering worthy of a trip and head out.
  • Create an obstacle course. Devise a series of obstacles (whether indoors or outdoors) to overcome. Use the activity to impart new skills (like a station to tie a shoe or to ride a bicycle) or just use your imagination and have fun.
  • Go berry picking. Look up nearby pick-it-yourself farms and hop in the car for a day trip. Establishments like these are usually family-run and charge by the amount you pick. Don’t forget the bug spray!
  • Do some yoga. Break out some yoga mats (or towels) and do some yoga stretches. If you’re inexperienced, stick with beginner’s poses.
  • Have a cultural day. Learn about a different country or culture by listening to music, making crafts, dressing up, watching films and preparing unique food from the country or culture of your choosing.
  • Paint a portrait. Pick up some inexpensive art supplies at a dollar store or art supply store (canvases, paints and brushes), set up a makeshift easel and let your creative juices flow. This can be done from a photograph, or someone (or some pet) can be a live model!

Tens of thousands of Primerica representatives and their teammates are expected to convene for several days in Atlanta for the 2019 Primerica International Convention.

The company’s flagship event – which happens every two years – celebrates its return back to its home base state after the 2017 Convention was held in Indianapolis during the construction of the new Mercedes-Benz stadium.

“Our convention provides a great opportunity for us to celebrate our accomplishments and set the course for the remainder of the year. We expect the event to bring together tens of thousands of our teammates to Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium where they will learn from dynamic leaders, attend workshops and seminars, and enhance their skills,” Glenn Williams, Primerica’s CEO said, in a press release. “The convention will help us maximize the many opportunities that lie ahead for Primerica, our clients, and our representatives. Primerica remains ideally positioned to meet the evolving needs of middle-income families across North America now and for years to come.”

Business sessions hosting upwards of 50,000 will be held in the stadium arena, and the nearby Georgia World Congress Center will house exhibit halls and business-building workshops hosting tens of thousands of Primerica representatives from all across North America.

Primerica’s first-ever Convention was held in 1977 at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama.

Read about the enormous impact this year’s Convention will have on Atlanta in this press release by the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Helping your children develop a positive work ethic is a priority for all parents, but it can be difficult in today’s modern world to discern whether we’re doing the right thing with all the other priorities out there to juggle. If you have teenagers, helping them develop confidence in their work ethic is essential. Here are a few steps your son or daughter can take to land a job this summer:

Expand your social network. Contact family and friends to let them know your teen is looking for work. Check out neighborhoods near you that may have trustworthy websites and/or social media sites that may post help wanted notices for appropriate jobs for teens. If your child already has a service to offer, such as babysitting or mowing lawns, help them post to these sites and offer their services. Just be sure to screen the responses and make it known that your child’s parent is involved.

Send them back to camp. But this time, as a counselor. If your child already knows the ropes at a particular summer camp, or if he is already interested in a particular subject, like music or marine biology, his help may be invaluable to a summer camp organizer looking to hire someone to guide younger kids in that subject matter. Help your teen with a web search on summer camps in your area that align with his interests and go from there. Be sure to check out local governments and nearby parks for camps being held there, as well.

Let them volunteer. Don’t ignore volunteerism as a way to develop a strong work ethic in your teen this summer. It looks great on a resume and is a definite character builder and can help them navigate interests for potential careers. Many large national organizations – like American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and Meals on Wheels  have local offices where you can offer your help, in addition to other volunteer opportunities that may be available in your area. Make sure you stress to your teen that there are plenty of other causes – no matter how tiny – that can have a huge impact on your community and on them.

Bring them to the office. If you own a business and can use your teen’s help, hire them. Whether it’s filing, making copies, answering phones, or grabbing coffee, a part-time job can help them branch out and ready themselves for the adult world.
