Fun Summer Activities

Summer is unofficially here, so I wanted to share some fun summer activities for kids and adults of all ages that we love to do every year!

My kiddos LOVE racing down our Slip N Slide!  It’s a great way to stay cool and have a little competitive fun!

This is a family favorite! We snagged a simple projector.  Then, we hang up a white sheet and voila!  We have movies out in our backyard!  Don’t forget to complete the experience with popcorn, soda, and snacks!

 This is one of my summer favorites!  Make a DIY S’mores Bar, where you can choose your own S’mores adventure!  I like a classic S’mores, but the rest of my family likes to try new crackers or cookies, and even new candies, instead of the plain chocolate too!  Grab your marshmallow roasting sticks and start making your favorite version!

A tradition I started last year with my kids! We put up some Christmas lights, made gingerbread cookies, listened to Christmas music, and we watched a fun Christmas movie. We had a jolly good time!
