5 Fun Things to do this Summer with the Kiddos

Whether you find yourself outdoors or in, there are all sorts of fun things to do as a family all summer long. We love to stay up until the sun goes down, sometimes we’re even up early as it rises. So we’ve got a full day ahead and need all sorts of ideas to keep us going.

5 Fun Things to Do this Summer!

1. Go Berry Picking: We love to go berry picking together! We’ve found a local berry picking place near us in Seattle. We look for the dates of the type of berries available and what is in season. Blueberries are the best, so easy to pick and perfect for little hands to help! Check out your local “U-Pick” farms near you. Then pick your berries and make something yummy with your spoils! Pies and smoothies are some of our favorites!

2. Summer Movie Marathon: Oh, ya! This is one of our favorite things to do for summer, staying up late and watching classic movies. It’s so fun to introduce these older movies to my kids, sharing my love of these classics with them. Nothing more fun than snuggling up with the kiddies watching classic summer movies- and you don’t have to worry about bedtime!

  1. What great ideas! Our 8-year-old has had his own garden (4×8′ raised bed) for the last 3-4 years and he LOVES it. We let him do his own thing in there and he has a weird combination of annuals, perennials, beans, squash, peppers, etc.
