School is almost here, but before it arrives, take the family out for some fun in Shreveport.

Hard to believe we're now just a few weeks away from school returning here in the Ark-La-Tex. It feels like just yesterday I was at my daughter's school on her last day, scouring the schoolyard for her friends to sing her yearbook.

Yet, school is almost here and if you're like me, you might wish you had a little more time with your little ones. Since I'm struggling with this myself, I figured I would write a list highlighting fun activities you can do with the kiddos that won't break the bank, and won't take much gas out of the tank.

    Trampoline Park

    We have a few trampoline parks in town, and rain or shine, they are always a hit with the little ones and they'll enjoy spending a few stress-free hours with you before they break the books back out.

    Splash Kingdom Water Park

    You only have a short time left to enjoy our own in-town waterpark. Tickets are sup[er affordable and there's no such thing as a Shreveport kid who doesn't love Splash Kingdom.

    Gators and Friends

    This place is a hit with my daughters. Even though they've already gone a few times this summer, we're still planning a couple more trips before the school bell starts ringing.

    Sci-Port is always a big win, no matter the time of year. However, as summer winds down you may be scratching your head looking for ideas that the kids will love. Maybe you haven't been thinking of Sci-Port this summer until now, and it's not too late to take the family to this awesome Shreveport sdestination.

    Shreveport Aquarium

    My daughters visit the aquarium at least once a month. It's simply incredible and we're lucky to have it here in town. Before school starts back up, take the little ones to this wonderful place of education and enjoyment.
