We are officially in the Dog Days of summer, which means high temperatures and lack of ideas in keeping the kids busy. Though Great Plains Communications is a strong supporter and provider of telecommunications services, we believe it is important for children to stay active and enjoy the outdoors. We have come together with a few of our cable networks to provide some fun activities to keep in mind throughout these hot summer days.


Disney Channel – Throw a Disney Princess Party

Your little girl have a birthday this summer? Throw a Disney princess party with cupcakes and handmade decorations. Letting the kids create the decorations gives them satisfaction in seeing it all come together and a fun goodie to take home.

HGTV – Tie-Dye Bed Sheets

This is a great way to get the kids outside but it doesn’t take too long, in case the temperatures start to rise. Grab some white bed sheets and some dye and you have a fun and colorful activity.

Food Network – Get in the Kitchen

Some days it is just too hot to go outside. No problem, stay cool and get them cooking. There are a lot of things kids can do in the kitchen and they love to help out, especially if it means getting their hands a little dirty.
