Well, what have you done so far this summer? Any great summer ideas to speak of? I know you don’t want to hear this but the fact is, summer is slowly slipping away. Before you know it there’ll be pumpkin flavored everything and you’ll be trading your shorts for slacks and your sunglasses for sensible sweaters. Don’t let Fall get here before you have some serious summer fun with your family. Here are some great summer ideas to make sure this summer is one to remember.
Swim Everywhere: Put on your suit and take your family to the local swimming pool, the beach and the river. Enjoy all kinds of water fun this summer. There are different ways to enjoy different bodies of water so make sure to experience them all. Bring your water wings to the pool, your boogie board to the beach and your tube to the river.
Water Balloon Bonanza: With the invention of the “ Bunch O Balloons” you can now fill one hundred water balloons at once with your garden house. These self-sealing little gems will make for an amazing water balloon fight. Don’t forget the water proof camera and don’t think you’re going to sit back and watch, either. If you want to make this a truly memorable summer you’re going to need to get right in there.
Go Camping: Or glamping if that’s more your speed. Either way, pack some of the comforts of home and take to nature to spend the night in the great outdoors. Don’t forget all the fixins for S’Mores because camping just wouldn’t be the same. If roughing it isn’t your speed, and trust me I get that, then try to find something a little less outdoorsy like these Dream Domes.
Find a Drive-in: They aren’t as easy to find as in years past but with a little research you can find a drive-in so your family can experience an outdoor movie. Pack some snacks and get cozy in your car while you watch a flick on the big screen. If you’re lucky they’ll show a double feature and the kids will be fast asleep by the time the grown-up movie starts.
Lemonade Stand: Kids love this kind of thing. They’ll work hard to set up their little business and sit out there all day long dreaming of making a fortune. Hey, to a kid, a couple of bucks is a fortune. Let them take their earnings and spend it any way they wish. After all, they worked hard for it.
Outdoor Concert: Even the smallest of children can enjoy music. There is simply nothing like enjoying it in the outdoors. Most towns have music festivals. Just make sure it’s kid-friendly and plan to go. Let your kids develop an appreciation for the festival atmosphere and make this one a yearly event.
Make sure you get all the things on this list done before Fall creeps in. You still have time but it’s disappearing quickly. Get started today and your whole family will thank you.
