Looking to spend some quality time as a family these days? Take advantage of the beautiful sunshine and get your family outside for some sunny fun! There’s a handful of super exciting activities that are easy to manage and won’t cost much money at all. Take a look at these tips and see which ones your family might be into.

Build a Bird Feeder

You can’t go wrong with crafts! Building a bird feeder gets kids excited and gets those brain muscles working. You can make your own fun design from a laundry detergent bottle or milk carton, or you can buy a birdhouse and paint it to your liking.

Become One With Nature

There are two activities under this branch (pun intended), and the first one is going for a hike. Hikes are free and can take up a lot of time or just a bit of the day if you want. There’s flexibility. Plus, you can pack lunches and have a picnic. Another way to spend time in the great outdoors is to plan a camping trip. Just make sure you do it right, complete with s’mores and scary ghost stories.

Play Driveway Games

Hopscotch has to be one of the easiest games to create. Honestly, all you have to do is use the chalk you probably already have to draw out your course, and then take turns and see who the winner will be.

Plant Some Seeds

Gardening is a fun, inexpensive way to get kids outside and active. Take advantage of the desire to get all messy and let your kids play in the dirt. In the end, you’ll have some beautiful flowers planted and they’ll have gotten some energy out.

Get Crafty

You may not have a family of Picassos, but anyone can create a fun pattern using paint on a rock. Gather up some smooth pebbles and paint a fun pattern. Let everyone create their own design, and then glue a magnet on the back of the rocks and place them on the fridge. It’s a fun craft that will turn useful!
