Finally, the warm weather and sunshine of summer are back. You’re probably eager to get outside and looking forward to exciting outdoor activities. Here are some creative outdoor activities that you and your family can try.
Camp out in your backyard
No need to pack the car up and drive to a campground when you can pitch a tent in your own backyard. There are companies who will come set up a “glamping” experience, though it will be even more fun to set things up yourself. This is a great way to have the adventure of sleeping under the stars while having the comfort of knowing your home is just a few feet away, in case you need to pop in for anything.
Host a car wash
Whether you want to pocket the cash for yourself or donate it to a charitable cause, hosting a car wash can be an entertaining way to make a quick buck. Recruit some friends to help you out on a hot day.
Get your summer wardrobe ready by getting out in the sun and tie-dying some colorful outfits. Depending on how you tie up the clothes, you can achieve plenty of unique patterns with many color combinations. You can tie-dye just about any white item of clothing, even down to your socks.
Make and fly kites
You can easily make a kite from household items you have laying around. Try using old newspapers, plastic garbage bags, sticks from outside and tape. There are tons of tutorials online on how exactly you can best build the frame of your kite. The amount of detail you put in is up to you, as this can be done in less than 30 minutes or take up to an hour and a half depending on the shape you choose to make.
Go on a scavenger hunt
Scavenger hunts are a fun way to explore and make some amazing discoveries. They can be as easy or as difficult as you want them to be. Maybe you want to explore nature and search for specific plants or animals, or maybe you want to go to different landmarks around your city. Whatever you choose, the hunt is sure to be a good time. For even more fun, make it a competition to see who can find everything the fastest.
