Summer Activities for Adults on the Outside, Children on the Inside

by - June 29, 2016

Summer is probably the most fun of all seasons. It's usually when people have a break from work or school. It's the perfect time to have fun with family or friends. And today I'll tell you some activities you can do in order to get the most out of summer because we all might act like adults but sometimes we want to have fun like if we were children.

When I say camping I don't necessarily mean going into the woods and staying there for the night. You can camp on your backyard. Or at a friend's backyard if you don't have one. Or even at the beach. There are so many places where you can go camping and it's always so fun. 

Water Park
Water Parks are always so much fun. I love water, I love swimming, I love pools and basically everything involving water so to me a water park is the best summer activity. And even if you don't like water you can still go and sunbathe.

Science Experiments
This is a great way to learn new things if you have kids or even if you don't, it's still fun to do something more practical. It's a great way to spend an afternoon and who knows, you might end up discovering something really useful.

Treasure Hunt or Geocaching
This is the kind of activity that can be done individually or in groups. Pick someone to plan out the whole thing and then divide the group into how many groups you want or let everyone play individually and whoever finds the treasure wins. You can do this just around the house or you can go further and select other places as well.

Make Homemade Instruments
Have you ever thought about starting your own band but then gave up because it would be too expensive? Well, here's a way to save some money. Making your own instruments! Now on a more serious note, making instruments at home can be fun and you can even do a concert for your friends or family. And who knows, you might actually get a career as a musician! Just because the instruments are homemade, that doesn't mean they're bad. Nothing is impossible!

Go Bowling
I've always loved bowling and I'm sad that I haven't done it in a while. Bowling is an excelent exercise and it's so much fun. The loser pays for everyone's dinner?

Making a scrapbook is not only something to keep you occupied in the summer but it's also a great way to later on remember the awesome summer you had. Take pictures, write down what you did that day, use emoji stickers to show how you were feeling that day, get everyone who participated to sign that page, make drawings to represent something you forgot to take a picture of.

Make a Movie
Whether you're the actor, the producer, the director, the writter, the stylist, the makeup artist, it doesn't matter. What matters is that you have fun while making the movie. Gather a bunch of people, plan out a movie, film it and then present it to everyone. It can be a fictional story or a documentary, what matters is that it's a movie that you helped making and that you had fun doing.

And those were all my ideas for a fun summer. Hope you enjoy your summer as much as I hope to enjoy mine.

I hope you're having a great day,
