Summer is winding down and, for our little ones, school starts in just a few weeks. But just because the summer season is coming to a close next month, doesn’t mean the fun has to stop, too!

That’s why I’ve compiled a list of family-friendly activities for you to consider engaging in with your loved ones. Read on below!

Take an Inexpensive Day Trip

Become a tourist for a day in a city somewhere close to you, where you’ve never been before! Take time to visit the museums, catch local attractions and sample the local cuisine. 

Eat Ice Cream For Dinner 

This is for those that believe in the saying, “You only live once.” An ice cream for dinner tradition is fun and harmless – as as long as it’s not made an everyday thing, of course! Best of all, this is an experience your children will never forget.

Let the Kids Stay Up Late 

Before they have to head back to school, have a late night with your kids. Try playing games that require NO technology, like flashlight tag, glow stick swimming or simply stargazing.

Try an Outdoor Movie

This is an oldie but goodie, especially if you’re lucky enough to have a drive-in theater near you! If not, you can always make an outdoor movie theater at home with a projector and a white bed sheet.
