I share a new idea every weekday morning at 6:40 and 8:40 to help make this the Best Summer Ever!  You can also find a big list on the Best Summer Ever board on the 98.5 KTIS Pinterest page.

If you want your wild animals to find some new furry friends and a good book at the same time, check out Wild Rumpus Book Store in Minneapolis!  (they also have storytime Mondays at 10:30)

If you get tired to telling your kids, “when I was your age, we would go outside and get dirty and have a blast” Let them experience it for themselves at a Natural Playground! There are a bunch in the Twin Cities, and here’s a big list to check out. (my favorite is Discovery Hollow)

Let’s face it, there’s never a good time to be stuck at a railroad crossing waiting for a seemingly never ending train to pass by!  But if you took a moment and looked in the back seat, I bet you’d see some bright smiles from your little ones!  You can give them a more hands-on experience at the Minnesota Transportation Museum during Tots & Trains Wednesdays from 10am – Noon!  They can play with train tables, Create a craft to take home, and play pretend in old train cars, and unlike when you are stuck in your car at the railroad crossing, this is one train adventure that you won’t want to pass by.

If your kids love going to the lake and the pool but you get tired of telling them, you can’t go that far in, no come back, no stop, no you’re too deep… Then check out Battle Creek Waterworks in Maplewood!  They have a shallow water pool with water playground, and a sand play area.  And for once you can enjoy the water with your kids without saying “no” every two seconds.  There’s also Tot Time just for the little ones from 9:30 – 10:30 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Check out the brand new Bell History Museum!

Enjoy a show that travels to you with the Woodbury Puppet Wagon!
