10 Summer Adventures for the Family... and a printable checklist

When it comes to summer fun, it's always great to have inspiration and a plan. Today, I'm sharing both! You can pick one or two items off of my summer adventure checklist, or you can tackle all ten.

To download a copy of the list: click on the picture above, right-click, save it to your computer, and print it like a regular 8x10 photograph.

And... here are the details...

1) Eat ice cream – Make homemade ice cream, have ice cream for supper, or try a NEW ice cream stand.

2) Do something good – Run a lemonade stand or yard sale for charity, visit the grocery store and buy things to donate to a food bank, or participating in a few random acts of kindness.

3) Buy a meal from a food truck and eat outside – Grab burgers, fries, fish, or pizza, and have a picnic in the park.

4) Visit a beach – Go for a swim, play catch on the shore, collect sea glass and shells, fly a kite, or go on a scavenger hunt.

5) Cook on a campfire – Avoid dinner dishes by roasting hot dogs over an open fire. Then, cook campfire treats for dessert.

6) Plan a theme day –Some options include: “spend gift cards day”, “play board games day”, and “kids pick the meals day”.

7) Have an outdoor movie night – Watch a movie under the stars with blankets, pillows and treats.

8) Plan a parent / child date – Parents pick the time frame and budget, and the kids pick the activity.

9) Get creative – Make a craft, bake something, decorate a cake, try a new recipe, or film a video. The only limit is your imagination.

10) Explore – Go on a hike, hunt for waterfalls, swim somewhere new, or go a road trip.
