Splendid Summer Activities

Now that the kiddos are officially done with school and the weather’s nice, it’s time to start celebrating summer. After spending the last few months entertaining your kids at home, I know you might have run out of ideas for what to do next. That’s why I’ve put together some fun ideas the whole family can do together.

Start A Channel—From daily blogging on YouTube, to mini skits on TikTok, there’s so many ways you could unleash your inner creative. I suggest starting with a topic that interests you and see where those ideas take you. This is also a great opportunity to talk to your kids about safety on the Internet.

Go Camping In Your Backyard—All the fun of camping without all the hassle of trekking to a campsite, camping at home is an easy way to unplug for an evening and get in some quality family time. If you don’t have a backyard you could even camp in your living room. All you need is a tent and some pillows—it’s that easy!

Adopt A Furry Friend—If you’ve been thinking about adopting a new animal, this summer might be the perfect time. Extra time at home means your new pet will get plenty of attention and training.

Take A Cookbook Challenge—If you love cooking or baking but are sick of always making the same thing, consider taking a cookbook challenge. It’s easy. You buy a cookbook and challenge yourself to make every recipe in the book.

Renovate A Room—You’d be surprised what a coat of paint, new rug and updated lighting can do to a room. Pick a room in your house that’s in need of a makeover and get the whole family together to give it the update it needs. 

I hope some of these ideas inspire you to spice up your summer plans!
