When you are planning your perfect summer weekend, it is important to note that you don’t have to stick to the same old things you are used to.
Get creative and try something new.
TAKE A HIKE
Summer is the perfect time to get back to nature. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the great outdoors by taking a walk somewhere you have never visited before.
Grab a backpack picnic bag for those harder to hike trails and eat your lunch half way.
Pack your tent and camping gear and set off for a weekend camping adventure. Sometimes all you need is a little relaxation outdoors away from it all to regroup.
Camping as a family is a great way to create special bonds.
LET HUNGER BE YOUR GUIDE
Visit a restaurant you have never tried before and sit on the patio to enjoy your meal.
Why not have one member of your family choose a different restaurant every weekend?
TAKE A HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE
There is nothing more beautiful than the view from a hot air balloon. It will give you a chance to see your city from a new vantage point.
GO BERRY PICKING
Spend the entire day gathering berries from a local farm. Buy each of your children special buckets to collect berries in and see who can fill their bucket first.
Once you have collected all your berries, then use the fruits of your labor to make a delicious dessert or mocktail to enjoy.
HAVE A BACKYARD BBQ
Invite your friends over for a backyard get together. Delicious food, refreshing drinks and good company make for an amazing weekend.
Why not try a DIY HOT DOG BAR with all the fixings?
GO FOR A BIKE RIDE
Hop on your bike and take a leisurely ride through paths and trails of your local park.
There is nothing more refreshing on a hot day than a dip in the pool.
Visit your local public pool, beach or lake and go for a swim.
DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING
Plug in a CD player or load up your music app on your phone and let loose. Sometimes music soothes the soul and dancing can help to relieve stress.
Having the perfect summer weekend doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, the less complicated it is the better. Take this chance to step outside your comfort zone and enjoy some new things.
