Summer’s last hoorah: 4 ways to stir some fun into the rest of your summer days

Summer is not over ‘till it’s over, baby! Now is about the time where you will be inundated with advertisements and articles about back to school. And almost every kid cringes when they hear the words, “back to school”. With this reminder glaring at us in almost every direction, part of you might be a little relieved that you don’t have to keep entertaining kids! 

If these last weeks of summer seem never-ending and boredom has struck (and when it strikes, it strikes hard!), here’s a little list to give you some oomph before kids get on the school bus.  

Book a last minute camping trip.  

What a great way to enjoy the outdoors! Plan a short weekend getaway to a camp site to jam in some extra fun summer memories. Here are some of the things you’ll need. Don’t stress! Enjoy a sporadic trip to the good outdoors. 

It’s not too late for a bon fire. 

What kid doesn’t love roasting marshmallows or making s’mores? Would you dare try to mix up the delicious perfection of the s’more? Here’s a list of 15 OTHER ways to create delicious s’mores. Go ahead and give them a try! 

Make an outdoor movie theatre.

 Because what says summer entertainment like “an outdoor movie?” Butter-up some popcorn. Fill a cooler and bring out your  TV,  extension cord, DVD player, blankets, a comfy blanket (the more the merrier!), and some family and/or friends. 

Last minute party. 

If you’re feeling like you just haven’t been able to see everyone, and your kids, too, then don’t despair and plan a party. Take a minute and plug a date into your calendar to invite some friends over. If you want to impress your guests, plan a refreshing mocktail, some easy-apps.

Hopefully with some proper encouragement and inspiration, you can pack the rest of your summer days with memories and kick boredom goodbye! Summers are short with our kids, and it’s easy to spend the latter days of summer longing for school to start. But why not create all the memories we possibly can?
