Keep your whole family active, engaged, and cool this summer!
By Kaeti Spanbauer
Are you looking forward to a summer with your kids? A couple months full of fun activities to bring you closer as a family and make lasting memories. We are, and we know kids are getting excited for a break too, so let’s give them the summer of a lifetime. Here are seventeen family activities to create an amazing and adventurous summer!
Camping is a relatively inexpensive excursion and is a great way to spend time outside screen free. You can throw a football or some frisbees around, make some delicious s’mores and meals over the fire, and tell your favorite campfire stories.
You can definitely choose to rough it, but with little ones, finding somewhere with bathrooms and showers makes it a little easier on both kids and parents for bathroom runs in the middle of the night.
Sidewalk Chalk Murals
Outdoor Movie Night
Fly a Kite
Picnic in the Park
Slip N Slide
Plant Flowers or a Garden
Make Ice Cream
Take your kids on a biking adventure. You can google a local scavenger hunt and bike around to find the different locations and items. Or simply find a fun biking trail the whole family can enjoy.
Visit Your Local Library
During the summer, local libraries often have summer activities for kids. You can go to weekly story time, join their summer reading program, or even participate in a youth book club. Check with your local library to see if they have a calendar of their summer activities so you don’t miss out on the fun!
Early Morning Walks
You can take your kids out on a morning walk (or evening, if that works better). This can be a great time to chat with your kids and get some quality time with them. You can catch up on their lives, their interests, and what they are looking forward to this summer.
We hope you have a fantastic summer!
