Summer Outdoor Family Fun

Now that the school year is quickly coming to an end, that just means two things: summer is officially here and school’s out! Fight off that summertime boredom and get the family outside for fun as the weather is warmer than ever! We’ll be sure your family will make great memories! Check out our list below and try them all!

Backyard Fun
No plans for the day? Get your kids out of the house and play in your backyard! Jump along on your trampoline, plan a fun scavenger hunt, or DIY a mini-golf setup. If it’s extra hot outside, make sure to bring a towel because you’ll need one when you join the kids for a water fight, slip ‘n’ slide or go splashing in the sprinkler. 

Beach Day
Have fun in the sun when you and your family spend a day at the beach! Go swimming or boogie-boarding, build sandcastles, collect shells, make a sand angel! There’s plenty of fun beach activities that’ll provide entertainment for all. Just remember to always have enough sunscreen, snacks and drinks! 

Summer Picnic
Who doesn’t love a summer picnic? Pack your family’s favourite picnic food and drinks and head to your local picnic ground. Don’t forget to bring a blanket and portable chairs! Fly a kite, blow some bubbles, bring a frisbee or participate in a good competitive family wheelbarrow race.  

Park Days
Take your family to your local park with a big field and amenities like a playground, splash pad or petting zoo! Your kids are likely to have so much fun! If they’re a bit older, bring a soccer ball or glove and ball and play catch to stay more active. To end off the day, grab a blanket, lay down and start cloud gazing – see who can spot the most shapes and animals!  

This could be in the comfort of your own backyard or the real deal! Plan a camping trip at your family’s favourite campground and be one with nature. If your family decides on backyard camping, pitch your tent, stargaze, set up a bonfire and make sure to continue the classic camping tradition of roasting marshmallows and s’mores. Kick it up a notch and set up an outdoor movie before knocking out for the night.
