Making the most of summer as a family

Summer is a wonderful time for families to spend quality time together, enjoying the warm weather and taking a break from the routine of daily life. Whether you have young children or teenagers, there are plenty of activities and experiences that can be enjoyed together as a family. Here are some tips for making the most of summer as a family.

1.Plan a family vacation

Summer is the perfect time for a family vacation. Whether it’s a trip to the beach, a national park, or a theme park, there are plenty of options for families. Planning a vacation together can be a fun activity in itself, as everyone can contribute ideas and help to plan the itinerary.

2. Spend time outdoors

Summer is a great time to get outside and enjoy nature. Go for a hike, have a picnic, go to the lake, or take a bike ride together. Spending time in nature has been shown to have numerous health benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety and improving mood. It’s also a great way to get some exercise and fresh air.

3.Try new activities

Summer is a great time to try new things as a family. Consider taking a cooking class together, trying a new sport or activity, or learning a new skill. You could also try out a new hobby, such as painting, knitting, or gardening. Trying new things as a family can be a fun way to bond and create new memories together.

4.Try out a summer Bible Study

5.Have a family game night

Summer evenings are perfect for a family game night. Choose games that are suitable for all ages, and make sure everyone gets a chance to pick a game. You could also make it a tradition to try out a new game each week or month. Game nights are a great way to spend quality time together and create a fun family tradition.

6.Volunteer together

Volunteering as a family is a great way to give back to your community and spend quality time together. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities available, such as serving at a food bank, helping with a community cleanup, or volunteering at a local animal shelter. Volunteering together can be a meaningful way to create positive memories and teach children about the importance of giving back.

7.Take advantage of local events

Summer is a time for festivals, concerts, and other events. Check out what’s happening in your community and plan to attend some of these events together as a family. Whether it’s a farmers market, a street fair, or a concert in the park, these events are a great way to get out and enjoy the community.

No matter what you chose to do as a family, the impact will last a lifetime. Being purposeful and prioritizing family time allows your kids to see that you value them and your family! Don't overthink it, just have fun and be together.
