The summer season is arguably the most popular and well-loved season for both parents and children, simply because it’s packed with fun adventures, days of relaxation, and family time! And now that it’s almost here, we know you’re looking for some creative and unique summer activities to do together as a family, something far different from how you were spending it this past year, all cooped up in your home because of the pandemic.
Make your summer super-entertaining and exciting without costing too much or wearing yourself out with planning. It doesn’t have to cost much to have immense family fun– check out our list of nine unique family summer activities to do this weekend and make the sunny season as spontaneous and enjoyable as you can!
Water balloon fights
Let the kids be kids– and don’t be afraid to get a little messy! Give in to those tiny whims and fill a bunch of water balloons with water from the hose on a hot day. Chase each other around and cool off with some water balloon fights this weekend! It’s a great activity to share with other neighborhood kids (or families!)
Draw some sidewalk or driveway art
Get a little artsy and gather the whole family for a little sidewalk or driveway art! Draw an entire chalk town and push the family to be more creative! Cover every inch of the concrete canvas and let your imagination run free– everyone who passes your home will surely be in a better mood instantly!
Host a bubble blowing contest
Oh, the kids are going to get a kick out of this one! Get yourselves tons of bubbles or DIY a secret formula and challenge them to blow humongous bubbles! It’ll surely keep them busy for a good hour or more, plus it’ll teach them to be more patient and determined!
Go on a weekend family movie night–outdoors!
Yes, a family movie night may be a bit common, but surely NOT when it’s outdoors! Go on a movie night outside with the family– set up a backyard picnic with a laptop or a large-screen tablet. Make sure to have tons of snacks (or s’mores if you have a fire pit!), some popcorn, and blankets, in case anyone suddenly feels chilly.
Make a family time capsule
Have you ever heard of time capsules? Make one for the whole family, and be sure to include current things, like a popular toy or even an unused face mask! Then, bury it in the backyard and dig it up in the future when you feel like being nostalgic!
Stargaze at the backyard
It’s always fun to observe nature, its beauty, and its simplicity. If your kids love to draw, paint, or take pictures, ask them to stargaze in your backyard! You can try to draw what you see or take photos of the sun setting and rising. Let them run outside around twilight and before dawn! It’s going to be memorable for them, for sure!
Take on a new crafting activity with the kids
Try a new craft like knitting or wood carving, and let your kids get involved! Ideally, it should be something unique that’s not generally taught in school or art classes, so they can hone a new talent in a creative area that’s uncommon. Let them learn a distinctive skill this summer!
Let the kids make dinnner by themselves
Let each kid make an entire dinner alone (or cheat and teach them to cook a bit in advance if they’re not used to tinkering in the kitchen!) for the whole family! By doing so, you allow them to be independent and to be more confident in themselves, too!
Enjoy some after-dark fun
We know summer is all about long days and fun afternoons, but many don’t realize those summer evenings are also beautiful and warm– especially once it’s dark and lightning bugs come out to play! Take the party outside and toast some s’mores over a fire pit. You can also play flashlight tag, sit around and tell stories, or go for a leisurely night walk together. These late nights bring a common ground that will surely bond your family for life!
