Break Away from Screen Time

Looking for ways to keep your children entertained for the summer? Here are five fun and safe things for your children to do in Bozeman for the 2015 summer season:

Beat the Heat in Belgrade Direction to Lewis and Clark Park Splash Park

Have you had a chance to go to Lewis and Clark Park in Belgrade? Well, now that summer is here and the Bozeman and Belgrade areas are expected to have several days with highs in the 90s, this park is the perfect place for your kids to cool off! It has shaded areas and a splash park that will give your kids plenty of fun. Bring a book and relax!

They Still Need Education

The Museum of the Rockies is a great way to keep your children engaged and active while also learning during the summer months. You can visit the Taylor Planetarium, the dinosaur exhibit, the Living History Farm, the Martin Children’s Discovery Center, and the new chocolate exhibit! If those things do not scream fun, I don’t know what will. Not only is this an excellent option, it is also affordable and will keep your kids interested in learning.

Hike the Community

We are so lucky to live in the Gallatin Valley. With so many hiking and biking trails, there is no excuse not to get out and enjoy nature with your children this summer. Bring your pets and climb up the “M.” Want a longer hike? Try taking your children up to Cottonwood Meadow. If it is a hot day, drive over to Hyalite and take the short hike to Palisade Falls. Your children will love being outside with their family, and you will get a little refresher as well.

Where Art Thou Fun? In the Parks!

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks

Take your family to enjoy Shakespeare in the Park. While this does not happen every night of the week, check the Shakespeare in the Park website (http://www.shakespeareintheparks.org) and find a night to take your children to a play. Bring a picnic and sit back and enjoy a live performance by local actors.

Get Creative at Arts on Fire

Do your kids love their creative side? Take them to Arts on Fire off Main Street in Bozeman and let them pick out pottery to paint. It is a great way to get your children out of the house and let them create something they can cherish forever.
