It’s hot outside, and that means it is time for indoor summer activities!
We love the outdoors as much as the next family, but when Texas summer temps rise about 100 degrees, this family is staying indoors. We’ve created a list of over 30 indoor activities that are still summery and fun that you can do inside without feeling like you’re missing out on summer (or rotting your kids’ brains with too much TV). Try these activities for some family fun this year!
