Summer is over and a new school year has started. For children, it’s the end of fun and carefree times. For parents, although it’s great to have some free time after being at the beck and call of your children 24 hours a day for nearly two months straight, there’s still plenty of downtime after school and during the weekends that needs to be filled. What better way to fill it then with activities that are not only fun, but that are also interesting and educational? With that in mind, here are some fun after school activities in our area:
