It’s summer time!
Your kids must be thrilled to be free so let them have some fun.
Since they spend way too much of time indoors, especially if you’re from a climate where it’s cold and raining or snowing all of the time, let’s encourage our children to engage in some well-deserved play time. It’s also a great way to bond as a family.
The following list of activities will have your kids laughing while you stay on budget.
#1. Mini Challenge
Make some delicious sandwiches together and pack it in your favorite picnic basket. Then dress in your favorite summer attire, put on some sunscreen and head to the beach or to your local park. Bask in the sunshine with your family, toss around a Frisbee or a ball, or take a walk and enjoy munching on your delicious sandwiches.
In fact, you can alternate between these two or make it a point to visit as many beaches or free parks in your area. Think of it as a challenge.
#2. The Hunt
Hide things that your kids like in your backyard. You can also do this at a park.
Create a list of clues and ask them to search for the items. Once they’ve found everything, you can all treat yourselves to something delicious that you have at home. Enjoy yourselves by laughing and discussing how the scavenger hunt went.
#3. Go Camping
Campsites are expensive but you can always grab a sleeping back and sleep under the stars. If you live in a particularly hot environment, it might be cooler outside than inside your house.
Grab a flashlight, some marshmallows or any treats you may have at home, tell each other stories, sing some songs and share a treat before calling it a night.
If you don’t have access to a sleeping bag or if sleeping outside is not an option for you, then treat it like a late picnic and go inside and head to bed or sleep in the living room together.
#4. Bubble Pop
Make some bubbles in a small container with some dish soap and water, blow some bubbles and have your little ones run around and pop them.
If you’re okay with it, your kids can take turns blowing bubbles are well.
This activity always has little ones running around and squealing with excitement.
Let’s recap really quickly. Today, we looked at the following:

- Four activities you can do to with your kids outside: mini challenge, the hunt, go camping, and bubble pop.
