It’s summertime and the heat of the day doesn’t have to put a damper on your activities! There are plenty of ways for you and your family to enjoy themselves this summer while also paying close attention to social distancing.

Keep reading for some summer family activities that will keep you and your kids entertained all summer long.

1. Backyard Fun

Even though going out and enjoying public places is more difficult this year, there are still plenty of fun things you can do at your own home. If you’re tired of being cooped up in the house you can set up some fun things to do in the backyard.

A slip and slide is a perfect way to have some fun during the day while still keeping cool. Your kids will enjoy sliding over and over, especially with the extra help of some sprinklers or a hose. Once they’ve had their fill, they can blow some bubbles or enjoy a homemade popsicle. If they get messy eating their sweet treat, no worries, just hose them down or send them through the slip and slide to rinse off.

At the end of the day, you can set up a tent or lay down a blanket and do some stargazing. You can use a star guide to learn more about the constellations you are looking at or if you are really lucky maybe catch a meteor shower.

2. Go to the Beach or Park

It’s the perfect time of year to go to a beach and enjoy the sun and water. If you plan your visit during the week you can also avoid the busier weekend crowd and not worry as much about being close to others. At the beach, you can make sandcastles, swim or surf in the water, or have a bonfire and roast hot dogs or make some s’mores.

If you aren’t close enough to a beach but still want to get out and enjoy the outdoors you can visit a park and have a picnic or fly a kite. You might also want to take some time to remember a loved one and walk through the grounds at a memorial park. Visit for more information.

3. Get Creative

At home, you can let your creative juices flow together by making some sidewalk chalk art on your front walk or driveway. Maybe learn how to paint a beautiful watercolor or still life from an online tutorial. You and the kids can work together designing a festive front door wreath for the upcoming holidays.

Other creative ideas are learning to grow a small herb garden. You can also make some decorative pieces for inside your home like a small aquarium in a jar or learn how to make a flower arrangement.
