12 Things Every Family Should Do This Summer

things every family should do during summerSummer is just around the corner, so it’s time to start making plans. Instead of sitting around the house this summer, get outside for some fresh air and exercise. Here are some things your family has to do this summer.

1. Host a BBQ Fire up your outdoor cooker (whether you prefer to grill or smoke) and feed your family and friends. Add some ice cold drinks and lawn games to have an amazing afternoon.

2. Swim in a natural body of water – Pools are great, but there’s something peaceful about swimming in a pond, lake or ocean.

3. Go camping – Camping is an excellent way to get away from gadgets and devices for a few days and truly enjoy nature. Of course, don’t forget your grill.

4. Visit a farmer’s market – Buying fruits and vegetables directly from farmers is an excellent way to support your local community. Plus, everything tastes better when it’s fresh.

5. Go berry picking – You probably have a farm of some kind around you that grows berries. They usually let you pick a bucket full for a flat fee. Then, take your prizes home and whip up something delicious!

6. Meet the ice cream truck – Kids love the ice cream truck. Who doesn’t like sweet delivered? The next time the ice cream man is around, grab a treat.

7. Play in the rain – Now that it’s warm, playing in the rain won’t make anyone sick. When we start to get one of those sunny day downpours, encourage everyone to run outside and splash in some puddles

8. Visit a museum – I know this one is indoors, but museums (especially science museums) set up elaborate exhibits when they know kids will be out of school.

9. Take a long bike ride – I’m not talking about just down the street. Find an easy area where there aren’t many hills so the kids can keep up (you may have to drive there).

10. Visit a petting zoo – During the colder months, the animals don’t like to come out of their enclosures, but during the summer you’ll have some time with them in the mornings and the evenings. Find one that let’s your kids ride a horse or goat.

11. Take a fishing trip – This might not be for everyone, but your little outdoors kid will love it.

12. Find some fireworksEveryone loves fireworks displays. They are an excellent way to sit back and enjoy an evening (especially once you’ve got everyone fed with your grilled and smoked delicacies).
