Summertime is in full swing, this week there are quite a few fun events and lots of cool outdoorsy stuff to do in the works. Pool parties, slip-and-slides and concerts are always a great way to enjoy the warm summer weather, and we have sought out some (just in case of rain) weather defiant activities for your energy filled kids, too!

The weather has been all over the place lately, so if you’re looking for activities that are indoors but energy zappers look no further! Sport4Kids has a fantastic summer program lined up for the kids starting from 3 and up to 10 years old.
