You're going to spend about $495 to keep your kid happy and entertained this summer. According to the Daily Mail, that includes $319 on toys and activities to keep them occupied while they're not in school. You'll also drop another $176 to take them with you on trips and vacations. And be prepared to spend even more on stuff like daycare and babysitters.

The average parent said they suggest 13 different activities a week for their kids over the summer. And that's still not enough. On average, kids are bored and don't know what to do by about 1:30 every day.

And even though about two-thirds of parents start planning activities for their kids before summer hits...45% said they're out of ideas by August...and out of extra money by September.
