A guest post by Stephanie Holleman, Founder of Mom’s Healthy Market

Its summer and time for summer fun with the family.  Although there are fun individual activities such as t-ball games, soccer practices, birthday parties, sleep-over’s, and summer camps for each of your children, the best days of summer are spent when families share time together.

For an extra special summer try these summer family activities:

1)      Bike to the Ice Cream Store

2)      Hike a Trail or Climb a Mountain

3)      Visit your City’s Botanical Garden

4)      Attend a Baseball game or Sporting Event

5)      Have a Picnic at your Favorite Park

6)      Enjoy a day at the Beach, Lake or Ocean

7)      Make Homemade Ice-cream

8)      Go Fruit Picking for Strawberries, Cherries or Blueberries

9)      Surprise your Kids with a Day off Work to a Surprise Location of your Choice

10)  Take a Road Trip to a City you Have Never Been to Before

11)  Swim at a Local Pool or Splash Pad

12)  Go Camping at a State Park

13)  Try a New Sport like Golfing or Tennis

14)  Have an Unplanned Water Fight in your Own Backyard

15)  Go to an Amusement Park or Water Park

    1. This is one of my favorites. Almost all kids love a fun water fight on a hot day! The best part about a water fight is that it's free and you don't have to go anywhere to have fun. Enjoy!

  1. These are some great activities for the summer! I think my family will be trying to do # 5, 8, 11 & 15!! thank you so much for the ideas! We are always looking for things to do!!

  2. Jessica – Glad you like the summer activities. Picnics seem to be a thing of the past but kids love them and parents need them to slow down a little. Enjoy your time with your son!
