Summer is the time for memories! With school out and the sun shining, families have more opportunities than ever to create connections outside of their routines.  Here are twenty-two must-do activities that'll create unforgettable memories.

  1. Go to the beach!  Run from the waves, build sand castles, and find sea creatures in the tide pools. 
  2. Go camping!  Help build your tent, go for a hike, build a campfire, and make s'mores.
  3. Go hiking!  Check out different trails and go on a nature scavenger hunt.
  4. Have a picnic and enjoy nature while munching on delicious homemade treats.
  5. Go to the zoo and meet some fascinating creatures from around the world.
  6. Go to an amusement park and ride on the wildest rides.
  7. Visit a farm and meet some cows, horses, and pigs.  Check to see if there is a farm sanctuary by you.  Farm sanctuaries give you a more up close and personal experience. Some farms have gardens and they may even let you pick some fruits and veggies.

  15. Play in the mud!  Make a mud kitchen and make cupcakes and pies.
  16. Visit an indoor playground and let out some energy. 
  17. Fly a kite.
  18. Plant a garden and grow your own fruits and vegetables.
  19. Go stargazing. 
  20. Stay up late watching movies or playing games. 
  21. Find activities through your city or library.
  22. Go to the movies.  Check to see if your theatre has summer discount days.
