Keep your munchkins entertained this summer, but not by packing them off to the usual activity classes and run-of-the-mill workshops. Instead, entice them with our roundup of fun things to do. These are activities that your children can dabble in with their cousins or friends at home or even in your backyard. We tell you how to encourage kids to write better stories, stage home productions of plays, and even devise a quiz. They can also plan a midnight feast, live in a tree house, which you can build without hurting the tree and hone their sense of smell.
