Word Search: Family Summertime Activities (Contest)
Tuesday, May 7th, 2024

UPDATE: The winner is…Kerry Jo!

School lets out on May 23rd! We didn’t have many snow days last winter, so they’re out early! Yay! We love our summers with the kids. We plan little events all summer long, whether it’s something simple like eating watermelon at the poolside or heading to the cinema for a movie. My lovely brother gifted us with a canoe he wasn’t using when he last visited, so we have something to add to our activities!

I’ve made a list of activities I’m pretty sure we’ll do this summer. For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, give me some more ideas! And if you have kids to entertain, what do you plan to do?

    Trips to beach, zoo, walks in parks.

    My kids are grown and gone, planning their own activities that generally don’t include mom. However, have plans to do some porch sitting. Just sit and enjoy the weather, watch the tourist drive by, and stay out of their way. Oh yeah, there will probably be a book or three involved.

    I’ll have my granddaughter this summer so we’ll be swimming, going to the beach, boating at the lake and taking picnics with us.

    Birding. I’m amazed at the variety I’m learning about here in NM.

    Upcycle something you get at the flea market. Or collect leaves and flowers while you are hiking and make them into bookmarks or framed art. Take pictures of all of the activities then make a humorous memory book.

    Definitely taking advantage of free entry days at local museums and gardens. Doing art (whatever that looks like) in connection with one of those visits, either during (stopping to draw/paint, whatever) or after. Learning a new craft or hobby. Board games, or making your own game. If the kids have interest, selling either something they make or culling what they have to sell what they don’t want any longer…

    I would take them on an old fashioned camping trip. I remember when I was little we would go to the lake and camp, spend all day in and out of the lake swimming, playing games, eating outside, at night have a camp fire
    it was awesome

    I would plan trips to parks, museums, and beaches. I live finding something that is like a one tank trip and go there and explore there are some places around people tend to forget about. Myself I’m planning on going to the beach and seeing if I find any beach glass or stones that I can make something out of them besides going to parks for hiking.

    Did you ever go mining? Herkimer diamonds in upstate New York is tons of fun. Pottery class or even a glass blowing class. Enjoy you summer!

    We have a small inflatable pool for the 8 year old granddaughter. Hopefully that and the few other outdoor toys will be enough for her when it’s not just plain too hot to go outside. All four of the adults make and sell crafts projects on the weekends at a farmer’s market and the granddaughter is starting to get in on it too. We live only about 5 miles from a mountain lake that the husband and I used to take the kids camping at years ago, so will probably take the little one there a few times, til the water levels start dropping later in summer.
