BLOG: The most underrated place to keep kids busy during summer

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

I had lunch with a girlfriend the other day where the topic of summer camps came up – more specifically the enormous amount of money it’s going to cost to sign her kids up! There are so many camps I would love to have my two little ones attending right now, but $125 here (x2), $350 there (x2) and the summer budget just burst at the seams!

There’s one place that is always a sure favorite that my kids like to go to. The library!

I have to credit my mother-in-law (a retired teacher) for encouraging me to get the kids involved in the free programs at the library just for kids.

We recently got to see the Spin Cycle Jugglers team do their tricks (pictured). Then, it was off to read books…topped off by my 4-year-old’s favorite activity – playing with the train set.

Libraries are so underrated. Hopefully the couple hours we spend there at a time is planting a seed for a love of reading as they grow up.
