Summertime is the perfect time to go outside & enjoy the fresh air with these exciting Outdoor Minute to Win it Games. Plan a day, invite friends, and have a blast with 16 of the best outdoor summer activities!
Warm weather is here! When looking for activities for the kids during summer, it’s best to remain organized. The freedom of summer is fun but can lead to the chaos of a zoo when it’s not structured. Summer Bucket Lists are always helpful in creating a visual display off all the activities you can do as a family. One nice thing about having a summer checklist is the kids can see what plans are the works and what activities they have done.
One activity that often gets neglected, is outdoor play. This summer, drop the screen time and go outside and enjoy the fresh air and soak up the Vitamin D with some great group games.
