Outdoor Summer Activities

It is always a great idea to go on a hike! Find a local trail or hill and walk the entire path. It is nice to just have chats while going on a walk. If you find is a little pond with ducks your child can feed them! Sounds fun? Bring a bike with you and get the scenic ride together. Everyone will enjoy it. This is a great way to stay active in the summer and allow your children to get in touch with nature. Print the scavenger hunt and bring it with you. Kids will get entertained and active finding things around. Find fireflies? Catch them in the jar! Just be sure there is no rain ahead!

Beach Activities

Although every child loves to spend a day on the beach, sometimes you need extra ideas to keep them entertained. The first things your child will do of course swim and build sandcastles. This always seems like a great hit among children. Let them scour the sand in search of some beautiful shells to make necklaces, bracelets, and crafts later at home! Bring some sand home and your child can make outstanding art projects!

Backyard Activities

Does your child like the treasure hunt? I bet she does. So plan one or two around the yard or around the neighborhood. Start a lemonade stand (you can make ice popsicles as well!). It gets very hot in the summer and not only is it a fun activity, but it will also help to cool them down while giving them a tasty snack! Do not get a chance for camping? Make one in the backyard. Play water balloon fight, practice rope skipping, make a race track or zip lines.
