June is upon us, and so is warm weather. That means it’s time to make the most of summer. Here’s a fun little bucket list of ideas to fill longer days before school is back in session. Print it out (details below), hang it up, and check it off for some sweet summer fun.
∆ Hike to a waterfall.
Lace up your hiking boots, grab a friend, and take to the trails. (Just keep an eye out for snakes!)
∆ Visit your local farmers’ market.
Stock up on fresh produce, and challenge yourself to cook a colorful—and nutritious—dinner with whatever you buy.
∆ Pick strawberries and make jam.
Spend the morning in the field, and after a couple hours in the kitchen, you’ll be eating biscuits smeared with homemade jam. (Get step-by-step instructions here.)
∆ See an outdoor concert, movie, or play.
Pack a picnic and settle in for some fun under the stars.
∆ Plan a road trip—it doesn’t have to be far!
Even if you’ve only got the day, grab some friends and a killer playlist and pick a nearby city or park to explore.
∆ Roast marshmallows over a campfire.
And don’t you dare forget the chocolate and graham crackers.
∆ Go to a drive-in movie.
Drive-in theaters are fun, retro, and the best way to cool down after a hot summer day.
∆ Make sno-cones.
Just one bite of these sticky concoctions will make you nostalgic for summers past. (Make your own with this recipe.)
∆ Visit your local zoo.
Add kids or friends, and you’ve got a lively day out.
∆ Organize a friend/family Olympics.
Plan a themed day of sports and games, and discover competitive streaks you didn’t even know existed.
∆ Go canoeing or kayaking.
Splashing is encouraged.
∆ Pitch a tent.
There’s nothing like camping out during the summer—even if it’s only in your own backyard.
