One of the best things about summer time is having the family completely together again. We all have vacation time and the weather is beautiful! Here are a couple of fun ideas to enjoy with your family this summer.
- A Twist on Baseball– How about baseball with water balloons! Sounds fun right? Well just grab a baseball bat (I prefer the plastic T-Ball bats) and fill about 25-50 water balloons to roughly the size of a softball and have fun! It is always fun to see who the balloon explodes on and normally in the end our family always ends it with a water balloon fight.
- Tie Dye– When is the last time you have tie dyed something? I recently did this at the beach with my family and we had a blast! Go to your local craft store and purchase a tie dye kit. We purchased the family fun pack which came with the gloves, rubber bands, 25 colors and an instruction book of different designs. We then grabbed 10 white T-Shirts and had a blast! It is a great thing to do especially if you have younger children in your family they will love the opportunity to paint an article of clothing on purpose.
- Family Field Day– We used to do this in my neighborhood cul-de-sac. We would set up each house in the cul-de-sac with a different summer game. We of course had the traditional water balloon fight and slip-n-slide at one house, then sponge relay at another house and at our third house was basketball, jump rope and best of all food and popsicles! It was a blast each year that we were able to do these.
I look forward to the summer each year as I hope you all do as well. I think you will get enjoyment out of these activities and I hope that everyone has a wonderful fun filled summer!
