  1. Pick some fruit

Depending on where you live, there’s likely some great fruit picking to be done! From a variety of berries to peaches, summer is a great time to pick those fruits and then do a fun cooking or baking activity afterward!

  1. Be a Tourist in Your Hometown

You’ve lived in your hometown for quite a while, and now it’s time to flip the coin and become a tourist. Go sightseeing, visit a museum, take a walk and learn about the history of your backyard!

  1. Surprise a family member

Have an empty evening? Why not take a short road trip to visit a family member or close friend? Keep them company, and bring them something you’ve baked or made.

  1. Lego Mania

This one only works if everyone in your family participates…adults too! Dump out all of the Legos that you have onto the floor of your family room and sit down to build together. Come up with a theme, try and build a specific animal or TV character. Use this time to recognize your children’s creativity. You might even impress yourself!

Take the kids to a local high school basketball or football game. Grab some pizza or ice cream afterward. It’s sure to be a tradition you’ll revisit over and over again!
