Our family is SO ready for summer! This is truly the time of year when we live our best lives, all of the outdoor time and all of the togetherness and adventure as a family fills us up! Are you feeling ready to soak up summer and make unforgettable memories with your family? I’ve got a list of fabulous summer family activities that are perfect for kiddos. Let’s dive right in!
With those super hot Texas summers, what better way to cool off than spending quality time in our backyard pool? Whether you have a pool, a neighborhood pool, a local YMCA, or even a lake or river that you can dip into, make time for the family to splash, swim, and play water games. Don’t forget the pool floats and water toys to keep the fun going!
Our kiddos have hours of fun on the trampoline! Let your kids bounce to their heart’s content or even just have a fun hangout spot where they can make forts and have tea parties.
Extend the summer fun into the evening with light-up balls and toys. Have a glow-in-the-dark treasure hunt or play a friendly game of catch under the starlit sky. These luminous activities will make your long summer nights stretch out even longer!
Transform your backyard into a summer paradise with a wide range of toys and games. From classic outdoor favorites like Frisbee and hula hoops to more adventurous options like a mini obstacle course or even a homemade slip ‘n slide, the possibilities for endless family fun are endless!
Get your kids moving with exciting sports activities. Set up a mini soccer or basketball tournament, have a fun game of badminton, or challenge each other to a round of mini golf. Sports together as a family can be a lot of fun and a great way to connect with one another.
Lace up those hiking boots and hit the trails! Explore the beauty of nature together as a family. From local parks to national forests, there’s always a scenic trail waiting to be conquered. Encourage your kids to spot wildlife, collect interesting rocks or leaves, and breathe in the fresh summer air. You could even work on a nature journal together!
Pitch a tent in your own backyard and have a memorable camping adventure. Gather around the flickering bonfire, roast marshmallows, and share stories under the starry sky. Camping at home offers the perfect blend of adventure and comfort, allowing you to create special moments together.
If you’re craving a change of scenery, hit the road on a family trip! You can drive or fly, or even make a day trip to a theme park.
I live for the precious moments when we can all be together as a family. We plan to make this summer the best one yet by embracing fun and creating cherished memories together. I truly believe that it’s the simple moments that make life so sweet.
