It’s summer. The sun is shining, the grass is green, and we’re all still maintaining social distancing guidelines. Even with the current restrictions, there are still plenty of family activities that you can do to stay active and keep the kids entertained. Here are four activities to spice up your summer.
Go on a bike ride or take a walk.
A nice 30-minute walk or bike ride with the whole family is a great way to get in some light activity and catch some sun. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
Hold a scavenger hunt in your own backyard.
There’s so much to discover, even in your own backyard. This interactive activity is easy to put together, it’s great for both the indoors and outdoors, and it can be educational. Here are some good scavenger hunt ideas from Good Housekeeping that you can try. Make it even more interesting with a small prize at the end of the hunt!
Put together a picnic lunch.
Find your best checkered blanket and prepare some cool lemonade—it’s time for a picnic! Take some time to put together a nice picnic lunch with the kids help and enjoy it at a park or in your own backyard.
Try a themed dinner night.
Who doesn’t love a good theme night? Create a fun theme each night for dinner and have everyone show up dressed for that theme. This is a creative and interactive way to spur their creativity and change up the typical dinner routine. Try a Star Wars night, an 80s night, a luau night, or have your kids come up with the theme!
