Are your kids already out of school for the summer? Then you’re probably looking for ways to keep them busy. Here are five ideas:

1. Teen Maker Lab at Main Library
We’re big fans of the MakerSpace at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County’s main branch. Help your teens learn how to take full advantage with this hands-on sewing class where they can make DIY pillows and tote bags (using their fabric or fabric from the library).

3. Farmer’s Markets
We love the Central Ohio River Valley Local Food Guide, which helps farm-loving folks find the best markets for produce, dairy products, and everything in between. Get your kiddos going on some good habits. All summer, eatlocalcorv.org

The Miami Whitewater Forest Harbor hosts two hands-on days of scavenger hunts, crafts, and other nature-themed activities. May 23 & 24, greatparks.org
