Getting the Most Out of Summer
Updated: Jul 8
Summer is right around the corner – where did the time go? – and we’re all uncertain about what this time holds for us. This doesn’t mean that summer fun can’t happen! Here are some fun ways to turn your home and yard into a summer playground for you and your kids.
The outdoors might be limited to us right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use your backyard to make some summer memories. Some ideas are:
Have a water balloon fight
Play shaving cream twister
Go for a family bike ride
Have a nature scavenger hunt
Decorate the driveway with sidewalk chalk and have a photoshoot or draw a hopscotch board and play a few games.
Stargaze with your family
Small or large spaces don’t matter when it comes to having a good time with your family! Create laughter and love with some of these summery activities:
Make a sensory bottle aquarium
Perform an easy science experiment by making soap clouds
Buy a popsicle mold and make homemade popsicles.
Build a fort
Movie night complete with delicious snacks and comfy pajamas
Enjoy story time, crafting, block play or coloring
Have your kids create a Summer Scrapbook by keeping a journal about their favorite Summer activities, and adding mementos and pictures
