This is a sponsored post, I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own.
Since I live in the midwest area we experience all four seasons. By the time winter is over, we are more then ready for warmer weather to come. Summertime brings so many fun opportunities, and I thought I would share with you how we have spent our summer outside.
We went to a historical day at a Mill and old house, and the children loved getting to wash clothes by hand, make rag dolls and rope, watch the sheep being sheered, tour the house, and see all the historical costumes. It was a fun day outside as a family, yet we were learning about history while we were together!
Then there is the lazy summer days of eating snacks outside (popsicles are a must!), reading books on a blanket outside, jumping on the trampoline, exploring in the ditch, catching fireflies at night, and sidewalk chalk and bubbles.
Are you looking for ideas for the summer months?
Making a tepee outside with branches.
Fun with water guns.
Slip and Slide (add bubbles to make it even more slippery!)
Put a sprinkler under the trampoline and bounce away while you cool down.
Take a long bike ride as a family.
Cook an egg on the hot sidewalk.
Make homemade ice-cream.
Go to a drive in outdoor movie theater (I did this once as a child and it was a totally new experience!).
Set up a tent in the backyard and sleep outside.
Invite friends over for a BBQ outside.
Fly a kite.
Make a treehouse.
Have a water balloon fight.
These are just some ideas of things we enjoy to do in the summer, or things we want to do!
I’d love to hear what you stay busy doing in the summer months!
