Five stimulating activities around the South Sound to keep your children busy this summer.
1 Schedule a regular family board-game night, featuring America’s new word-game sensation: “Covfefe.” (Ages 6 to President.)
2 Drive the minivan down River Road for a fun day of berry picking and a visit to “Ill Eagle,” which is either a fireworks stand or a bird hospital.
3 Bring in a home-security expert to give the kiddos “shock and awe” Taser training, now that Tacoma is poised to decriminalize stun guns.
4 Encourage your teenagers to take part in our nation’s No. 1 civic pastime: putting up election signs. Ground them if they participate in the No. 2 pastime: vandalizing election signs.
5 Check out the wildlife at Northwest Trek, Point Defiance or The Evergreen State College graduation ceremony.
