Duluth / Superior Free Activities For Kids This Summer

youtube.com

Parents! Do you really want to hear “I’m so bored” from your kids for the next three months? Summer is fast approaching and if you have kids who will be out of school chances are you’re already thinking of ways to keep them busy and away from technology. Maybe not COMPLETELY away, but if you have kids like mine, they’d spend every minute in front of the TV/XBox/Computer if you’d let them.

I found a few cool things for kids to check out this summer that are all FREE!!

Superior:
