Have a picnic together

Have the kids help you pack up all their favorite sandwiches and snacks. Then grab your favorite outdoor gear. From kites to bikes load it all in the car, then head to the park for a day of outdoor fun. 


Be sure to bring a big blanket and find a spot in the shade to protect everyone’s skin from the sun.

Get a little unhealthy

Instead of your traditional dinner, have an ice cream sundae bar! Get different flavors of ice cream and a variety of toppings. Get the kiddoes favorite toppings from oreos to gummy bears. Pile your bowls high and dig in together.

Plant a garden together

Take everyone to your local gardening center and explore all the flowers and plants they have to offer. Pay close attention to the colors, and sizes they have to offer. Then, let everyone pick their favorite flower or plant to take home.

Visit a museum you have never been to

Some families have their favorite museums, but try and mix it up this summer. Pick a fun, new museum you have never been to that you want to explore. Or, find specific exhibits being featured throughout the summer, so that you can explore something new. From dinosaurs, to ancient ruins, something new is always coming into town!

Go camping in your backyard

You don’t have to go far to set up your tent and tell ghost stories. Take the hassle out of packing up the car with all your camping equipment, and just head out back. Eat s’mores, look at the stars, and cuddle up into your sleeping bag. It’s convenient and fun for everyone!
