With COVID19 cases rising and signs of more restrictions in the horizon, this summer will be limited with all the activities that will be available. That is why staycation ideas are important this summer! Check out our list and we hope that it will help keep you all busy and entertained.
Build a fort. Back yard forts and tree houses inspire imagination and active play. If you don’t have a backyard or tree house no problem! The living room with some pillows and blankets make great forts!
Create an outdoor fire pit. Have the woods or beach fire experience without leaving your backyard. Fire pits are a great night time gathering opportunity with your family. Make smore's and share stories around the fire.
Backyard Camping. Pitch a tent in the backyard and change the scenery. Sometimes getting outside of the house even if its just in the backyard is very helpful to clear the mind. Kids love camping in tents and they find it exciting if it is in the woods or a few feet away from home.
Set up a hammock. Relax, make a drink, and play some chill music while swaying on a hammock. Set one up on a porch, backyard, front yard, or even in your home if you have the room. Once inside a hammock with eyes closed you can imagine yourself where ever you want to be.
Create your own water park. Go to your nearby store and find fun fixtures for your garden hose to spray water. This will entertain the kids for hours and you can add more fun with water balloons and water guns.
Create Your own Movie Theater. If you are tech savvy and have a projector, you can set up a fun backyard theater for the family to enjoy. Find a place to set up your projector. You can rig up a projector screen or aim toward either towards a backyard fence or the back of the home. The set up can be part of the fun as well.
Game night. Go to your nearby store and buy some new board games. This is the time to discover new games or to share your favorite games with close friends and family. Have virtual game nights on Zoom, Google hangout, or Facebook. For all of you who are 21 and older put a little twist on all the games and make some drinking game rules. This can be a fun way to start a new family tradition.
