Summer Activities for Kids in Dallas


The kids are out of school and now the challenge for parents is figuring out what to do with them for the next three months. This can be stressful for many parents because they have to work and with so many working from home, having the kids at home can make it hard. Here’s a list of some of the free things your kids can enjoy this summer.
