I am a firm believer in keeping kids active in mind and body during the summertime. What if I told you that you could find amazing summer activities for your kids right at your fingertips?
I know as parents, although we love to spend the summer months with our kids, we need a little down time and our kids need an outlet that doesn’t involve screen time! It’s all about creating the right balance.
This post is written in partnership with Afterschoolz. All opinions are my own.
So school is out…..now what to do? Where do you start looking for programs for your kids?
When my older kids were small I had to rely on word of mouth or mailings to find activities for them that they would enjoy. It was difficult at best.
Most of the time when I found out about activities they would love it would be full or too expensive because I missed the deadline to sign up and needed to pay a fee.
It’s much easier now when I am looking into activities for my 10 year old! It’s the digital age. Companies are coming up with more ways everyday to make our lives as parents and caregivers simpler.
One of the amazing things about living in the Chicagoland area is the multitude of possibilities for kids of all ages.
We have award winning cooking classes, dance classes, art classes and STEM classes, to name a few. Even circus and theater camps!
It can be overwhelming and the people at Afterschoolz saw the need to help parents manage, find and sign up to these amazing programs.
I have been using it to look up activities for Liv and I was amazed at how easy it is to find what you are looking for right away.

In just a quick glance, after I entered Liv’s age group, I found a vegetarian cooking class, a Minecraft Mania class and a book club for her!
