Fun Family Outdoor Activities To Try This Summer
Posted by C Brockie on
There's a song that goes: summertime and the living is easy. So what’s your summer activity of
choice that’s new and exciting for the whole family? Some would go sailing, hang out at
local beaches, take bike tours around the city, or try different outdoor activities in order to enjoy the
warm sunny weather, the sea breeze or the thrill of adventuring to a new place.
Here are some suggestions you might want to consider that are rich in experience and doable for both
parents and their children. With these, the kids are sure to have a summer they won’t forget and will
talk about when they return to school.
- Bike Tours
Be a tourist in your own country. If you just want to get a glimpse of interesting places, you can join a bike tour where you’ll also learn about the city’s history and culture while you pedal your way around destinations. It’s a great family
affair to try. Bike tours usually accommodate all levels and age groups, from kids to adults and sufficiently physically engaging for most people. You might want to try this new cool bike wheel lights that are making heads turn these days to go with your tour.
- Backyard camping
For first-timers, why not try backyard camping first as a dry-run before pitching a tent somewhere along the Appalachian Trail? Make sure you use real camping gears and start simulating the real stuff- sleep, cook and start learning taking photos of the milky way and shooting stars. Perhaps you might want to start orienting your kids how to use the shovel when nature calls.
- Create art with beach items
Seashells, bright colored stones, sand castles that have a story to tell are just a few common ones. You might want to explore something that’s out of the box that could nurture your kids' creativity. Here are some interesting beach crafts you might want your kids to try.
Another suggestion could be digging in the sand at the beach. Doesn't matter if it's in the ocean, lake or bay. It will definitely make your kids preoccupied for hours.
Try any of these family outdoor activities and give your family a summer that they won’t forget!
