Summertime Fun with Your Little One
Memorial Day is upon us, which means that summer is officially on our radar! When thinking of summer a few things come to mind: warmer weather, ‘longer’ days, barbeques, fireflies, and much more. But one of the best parts of summer is the fun in the sun you have with your little one! The pool and beach are all great activities, but here are some additional ideas to keep good times rolling all summer long!
Have a Picnic
Gather a basket together with yummy snacks, plenty of water and a bunch toys for the kids, and hit the road to a local park or lake! Don’t forget to bring a few blankets to set up your summer picnic grounds for the family. It’s a great opportunity to take some photos of baby enjoying the warmer weather and will give you mementos that will last forever!
Go to a County/State Fair
You may need a stroller, but taking your little one to his first fair is such a fun summer activity! Baby will be so awed by all the smells and sights of the magicians and different rides. While it’s fun for your whole family, it’s also a great tradition to start just for your new addition.
Just because you’re at home, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the summer outdoors! Grab some chalk and head outside to the patio or sidewalk or even the driveway and let your little ones draw you something special. Let their imagination run – you’d be surprised how creative they can be!
Make Homemade Ice Cream
Did you know you can make homemade ice cream in a bag? You only need a few ingredients, but best of all – it’s super easy, fast and a quick cleanup! This will be fun for everyone during the hot summer months! Check out Family Fun’s recipe here, and tell us how delicious it was!
