LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Many kids are counting down the days until school is out for summer, but for busy parents, it could be a challenge to find things to do.  Betsy Fusilier laid the groundwork for her website, LexFun4Kids.com, about a decade ago.

“It’s a free service, it doesn’t cost anything to get on the website, you don’t have to subscribe to get content. It’s all there and it’s all free for the community, so that’s what I want it to be,” Fusilier told FOX 56.

To Fusilier, the site is almost another member of the family. The former schoolteacher began forming the idea once she had kids of her own but wanted to find things to do.

“In the process, I started sharing what we’re doing with friends that I had met through mom groups in the community and that turned just into a little blog where I was kind of writing up stuff that was going on. And then it turned into a website,” she said.

And then it got even bigger. For example, the site features a community calendar and places where kids can eat at a discount or even free. Fusilier said maintaining it is a daily task.

“The website has continued to be something that evolves changes and grows with my kids, and I add more and more to it and I’ve always done just it by myself,” she said.

With upwards of 60 to 100 thousand views a month, throughout the years, Fusilier has gained a little support from community partners to promote, like summer camps. People can show their support by simply visiting the site and spreading the word.

“Sharing it, sharing the content that you see, it’s always nice to see it grow,” she said. Fusilier plans to continue building up the website and hopes to bring on writers with kids of their own to contribute. You can check out the site at LexFun4Kids.com
