If you’ve ever poured yourself into the house after a day of unbearable heat you may be ready for an inside adventure. (For those of you in more moderate weather, don’t forget to bookmark this for the winter!)
My adventures have directed me many places. I’ve spoken at Georgia Tech, the University of Maine, to thousands across multiple states and countries simultaneously, internationally, at Fortune 500 campuses in Minnesota, Tennessee, Massachusetts, and more. But one of the most memorable place I’ve ever spoken has been in Columbia, South Carolina.
If you go in October through February, it’s a haven. It’s a warm retreat from the cold of so many climates.
But if you go in the dead of summer you need to bring a bucket to scoop yourself up in. The heat is as outrageous as any jungle to the point where you can’t tell if you’re enveloped in humidity or the melting process has simply started.
On days like this you will want an inside adventure.
An Inside Adventure
It’s easy to have an inside adventure, you just have to decide who it’s for.
If you’re looking to do something fun with kids you can have a scavenger hunt for some items you’ve hidden around the house. You could help them build a fort and spruce it up with ferns and twinkle lights to make it seem like you’re camping under the stars.
You can put together a stage and make a talent competition. There are apps you can get to give your voice more of an announcer vibe and you can have them create award certificates before the events.
For adults, why not ditch the couch and have a nice picnic on the floor? If you have a bunch of friends over ditch the cards, get in a circle and play some games that don’t require anything like “I Went to Market” or “Two Truths and a Lie”.
Just because you’re inside, doesn’t mean you have to be bored; make it fun. There are all kinds of ways to have an inside adventure. Pick a few and have a blast.
