Keep Your Kids Engaged This Summer

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

By Willie Brown

In the next 2-3 weeks, summer will arrive, and with it, thousands of children will be unleashed all over Southern California, looking for things to do.  Are you ready, parents?

Summer is made for fun, but it can also present challenges for working parents who want to keep their kids safe and engaged.  You want them to enjoy their summer, but also be ready for the new school year.  Fortunately, there are plenty of attractions close to home that can keep your children from being bored and help them stay out of mischief. Several are totally free or low-cost.

Want to keep young minds sharp?  Check out your local libraries and see what types of events and reading programs are available.  Also, check out the local parks.  I recommend vising the website. is a good starting place to research parks and libraries in the area and see what’s going on.

Museums are a great way to get kids involved in learning history, art and culture Exposition Park in Los Angeles has a plethora of attractions for youngsters including the California Science Center, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, EXPO Center, Lucas Museum of Narrative Art and the California African American Museum (CAAM)

The CAAM just reopened to the public last week, after months of infrastructure repairs—just in time to kick off the summer season.  This summer, the museum will celebrate Juneteenth with a full day of wellness and family activities on June 15, followed by artist openings and exhibits highlighting the African American experience and culture. 

With a little planning, this summer can be both fun and mentally enriching.  Put a schedule together of fun activities  to keep your children entertained and inspired about learning.
