6 FREE Ways to Entertain Your Children this Summer in West Palm Beach

Happy 4th of July!


Half way through the summer and moms are already ready to send their kids back to school. If you don’t send your children to an all-day summer camp, you can quickly find it’s difficult to keep them occupied and still offer variety, every day, for an entire summer. Last year, I gave you an all-inclusive activity list, but as the cost of camps rise, here are a few things you can do to keep a cap on that budget and still have a great time with your children! Here are six FREE ways to entertain your children this summer.

    This sounds like fun ways to keep kids busy. I take mine to splash pads and they love it. I wish we had something like Peanut Island Park nearby.

    how, awesome! thanks for sharing. spend way too many afternoons hanging out in palm beach as I grew up near there.

    This is a great list for parents who don’t want to incur extra costs but are able to allow their kids to enjoy the summer.

  8. My kiddos and I were at a splash pad today and both had a blast. I love finding free (or super cheap) activities to do with my little ones.

  9. Splash pads are the best. Where were they when I was a kid? I wonder if there’s anything like Playmobil where I live.

  10. Julie says:

    Peanut Island looks like so much fun! My son would love that place!

  11. What a great way to keep the little ones busy during the summer! I know Florida can get pretty hot so the waterpark is a perfect way to cool off.


  12. Akamatra says:

    These places are awesome! Forget kids, I’ll take my bestie any time and check them out, lol! I am kidding, we’ll take the kids too 😉

    Bless. What a great article. Entertaining kids on budgets is so hard. Entrance fees for parks can be insane.

    With some effort, we can find fun and free things to do with the kids this summer. Your helpful guide makes it easier for moms to pick a few places without stressing over it.

    We haven’t been to any splash pads yet this summer, but it’s time. We’ve got another week of high temperatures and boredom setting in.

  16. I love places for entertaining kids which are few in our area. I bet the kids would want to stay all day at Playmobil. They love Lego’s.

  17. Woah the peanut island park sounds amazing, I wish I lived nearby because how cool does fishing sound? Anything to do with water and I am sold.

    WOW! That sounds like such a great place to go with kiddos! I’m sure you had an making time.

    A lot of my family lives in West Palm Beach. I’m visiting Orlando next week and am kind of bummed that I won’t be able to make the trip to WPB to see them. I’ll keep these ideas in mind when I do though.
