About My Kids' Adventures

My Kids’ Adventures™ is an online magazine designed to make it easy for busy parents to create adventures with their children anywhere—and it’s from the founders of Social Media Examiner.

Our free articles provide parents (and grandparents) with step-by-step instructions to creating fun activities in the home, the backyard, on the hill behind the house or in the great outdoors.

Our mission is to help you overcome the “I’m bored, I don’t know what to do” complaint you hear from your kids.
