Summer is here and it’s a great time to enjoy some fun summer activities (and some hot day activities). Here are some creative summer ideas for you to enjoy with the family and make some exciting summer plans.
A Themed Day
Sure the weather may be nice or the shade might be nicer, but that doesn’t mean coming up with creative summer ideas is easy. After all, once you get outside, then what? And how do you fill a whole day?
Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. If you’re looking for a way to have a fun summer day with the family, why not try a themed day. (If you’re looking for fun summer activities with friends, try this post).
Is there something your kids love like a particular movie, cartoon, game, or activity? Then make a themed day around it.
For instance, if they like the Toy Story movies, you could start out by having Toy Story coloring pages at breakfast. In the morning, you could go to the arcade like they did in the movie. You could have a “tea time” lunch. In the afternoon, you could shoot off rockets, and eventually you could come home to watch one of the movies. The kids could even dress as one of the characters if they want.
A Creative Excursion
If you want your experience to be more creative, you can have your kids make their own adventure. Instead of predefining where you go and what you do, make it a game.
Come up with three or four ideas in a few areas, such as:
- What to eat
- What to wear
- What activities to do
- What quirks to enact
Then, put the ideas in a hat one at a time and draw one out. You may end up going for a picnic dressed as royalty and then playing frisbee while talking like pirates. Or you might go to a favorite restaurant dressed as cowboys while talking Australian and drawing pictures.
The best part about these creative summer ideas is that it’s easy to make a unique experience with just a few options.
If you’re still not sure what to do, you should try a family scavenger hunt.
A Family Scavenger Hunt
One of the ways that AweVenture makes family adventures fun and exciting is by making it easy to do what you love to do.
Do like a particular restaurant or a local miniature golf course or maybe an ice cream shop down the road? Why not enjoy all three? Plan out a scavenger hunt by having your kids solve clues to unlock the next location.
They solve a clue to reveal an exciting lunch. After lunch, they solve a clue to reveal fun at the miniature golf course. After playing they solve a clue to reveal that it’s time for a frozen treat. You can plan all this yourself and come up with fun clues and riddles, or you can use our AweVenture app to plan it all out in a few short seconds.
Summer is a great time to spend with family. Have fun with some creative summer ideas whether you enjoy a themed day, a creative excursion, or a family scavenger hunt and find where your adventure will take you.
