With Summer in full swing and the family all at home due to the coronavirus, finding things to do becomes a little challenging after a little while! To help you with this we have found a few fun family friendly activities that you can do this summer:
- Cook! If you are always ordering, take out with your family or have only one member of the family who usually cooks it might be time to bring your family together in the kitchen to help prepare a family meal together! You can try things like making homemade pizzas all the way from the dough to the toppings! Have each family member create a dish that they like and bring them all together in the end! Or crack open a cookbook or a cooking app to tackle a brand-new recipe together! This can also be a way to help eat healthier as well! (Just don’t make too many pizzas!)
- Have a treasure hunt! If you have a yard (or even just around your house) you can make a treasure hunt for your family that they all can enjoy! If you have older kids that might not want to do it you can hide gift cards around the house and you can almost promise that they will be participating more than anyone else! Make a list of clues and tell them what they can find, you can even take some of their favorite possessions to do this with as well! (But remember where you put it all just in case!)
- Start a YouTube Channel! It’s fast and easy—and it can be a great way to capture moments that you want to easily share with other members of your family that don’t live with you! If you have a funny pet or just want to record day to day life for others to see it’s a great way to express yourself using video in our quarantined world!
Remember that you are not limited to just these on this list, you can scour the internet and find enough to keep your family entertained all summer and probably into the fall! Don’t let the summer go by without enjoying some time with your loved ones!
