Top 10 Things to Do This Summer

Hello friends! Happy Monday and Happy Fourth of July! (tomorrow) I hope your summer is off to a great start! We have had a great summer so far. We have had family in town back to back to back for the last three weeks and have loved every minute. We have been on many kayaking adventures and continue to grow our little back porch garden. Tell me what have you been up to?

As we enter the back half of the year… I can’t believe I am even saying this! How is it the back half of the year already? Didn’t we just celebrate New Year's? Anyways the plan is to post here biweekly and provide you and me with some fun content whether it’s just my thoughts for the week on motherhood, an outfit I love, or even a new recipe I’ve tried. (not that I’m a chef) I just want this to be a fun space for us to share life. So if you don’t see me biweekly call me out. lol

So let’s kick it off with a little fun. Summer is the perfect time to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and have some fun. Whether you’re stuck at home or planning a staycation, there are plenty of fun activities to help make the most of your time off. I put together a list of 10 fun things to do this summer.

  1. Go on a scavenger hunt. Get outside go for a hike and see what you can find along the way. I love this nature scavenger hunt. It is perfect to keep the kids busy and entertained while on a hike.

  2. Movie-themed night. Nothing beats a good movie night, and it’s especially great when you have a themed dinner to go with it. Pinterest has so many cute ideas!

  3. Do a craft project. I love the idea of squirt gun painting! This one is on our list of things to do this summer. It is so simple and requires minimal talent. haha

  4. Stargazing. Stay up late and watch the stars. See how many constellations you can find.

  5. Go swimming. Beat the heat with a dip in the pool, lake, or beach. There is just something about getting to the water that stills my mind. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!

  6. Outdoor movie. We love a good outdoor movie night. Look in your local area to see who is hosting. I know here our mall and zoo have hosted outdoor movie nights. My kids always LOVE them!

  7. Game night. Gather up all the board games and card games you have lying around and have fun playing together. This is a great way to encourage the family to interact and have fun without screens.

  8. Take a day trip. Whether it’s to the zoo, beach, museum, or baseball game make a day of it. Camping is another great option for a day trip. We love taking day trips! It’s like a mini vacation without all the chaos of trying to pack enough underwear. lol

  9. Fly a kite. We did this! I forgot how fun it is to fly a kite and watching my daughter’s face light up at the sight of it was so worth it. You have to try it, your inner child will thank you!

  10. Try something new! We have found we LOVE kayaking. We decided to try something new and found our new hobby. What is that one thing you have been wanting to try? Summer is the perfect time to try. Who knows it might just be your new passion!

I hope this helps with all your summer adventures! Which of the things listed will you and your family try this summer? I look forward to hearing what you have planned for this summer. Happy summer and Happy Fourth of July to you all!!
