Summer is a great time to get out of the house and create memories with your family because the weather is finally warming up and the days are getting longer. Now is a great time to start planning how to make the most of summer, so we’ve put together a fun list of summer family activities that are guaranteed to make this summer the best one ever.
Waterpark at home
Warmer weather means your kids will be spending more time outside, so give them their very own splash pad that will keep them cool and entertained for hours. All you need is a plastic tarp, your sprinkler head of choice, and a hose. Once the sprinkler has run for a bit the tarp then becomes perfect for sliding on and will keep them entertained for hours. You can even make your waterpark more official with a welcome to our pool garden flag.
Day at the beach
If you’re looking for a change of scenery to have some fun, a trip to the local beach might just be your answer. You can do a lot of fun activities at the beach like a beach-themed scavenger hunt, a sandcastle competition, or just lie in the sand soaking up the fresh air and sunshine. Just don’t forget to pack your personalized beach towels.
Make Homemade Ice Cream
Ice cream is a cool treat perfect to help you and your family cool off after a fun-filled day outside, so why not take the time to learn the art of making ice cream at home? It’s a great way to spend time together as a family and your little ones are sure to learn a lot about how ice cream is made. Once your ice cream is ready to eat, each member of your family will love creating their own ice cream sundae or banana split in their personalized ice cream bowl.
Whether you’re traveling to a campsite or merely camping in the backyard, a night under the stars is always a lot of fun. You can have so much fun telling fun stories around the bonfire or simply making the most delicious s’mores while looking for the big constellations.
Picnic in the park
You can’t go wrong with a classic summer activity like a picnic in the park. Make it an adventure and find a new park that your little ones can explore and create their own adventures in. You’ll need a picnic blanket and all your family’s favorite snacks. It’s a great way to make a trip to the park a memory they’re sure to remember for years to come.
Host a Cookout
A cookout is a great way to bring the neighborhood together. Invite the odd-numbered houses to bring their favorite summer side dish or beverage and the even-numbered houses to bring their favorite summer dessert to have a truly spectacular menu. This is also a great time to let your grill master flex his grilling muscles with his personalized grilling gifts.
No matter what summer family activities you manage to do, they are guaranteed to give your loved ones memories they will cherish for many years to come.
