Come summer break, though, and the opportunities for quality family time have arrived abundantly! With an excess of time on your hands to hang out with your kiddos, what activities do you have in mind?

Besides, it’s winter – the perfect time to get out a play, explore and see new places. Why? Because there won’t be any crowds!
