That’s right, despite the virus- Summer is Not Canceled this year! Check out some of these clever ideas to keep summer fun in 2020.
Summer camps and pools may be closed- but your family can still have some create summer fun this year. Consider some of these options you may not have thought of before.
Create a Backyard Summer Camp Thanks to Party City
Did you know that Party City is not just for party plates and balloons? That’s right, Party City carries tons of great summer fun too. Create your own “Backyard Summer Camp” with items like badminton sets, water balloons, water guns, bubbles, chalk and glow in the dark toys. Shop online and you even find some “fun in a box” sets all ready for backyard shenanigans. AND many items are available for Free In-Store or Curbside Pickup, perfect for a contactless experience.
Get the Classic Little Tikes Water Table for Hours of Fun
I can remember each of my teenagers spending hours playing with their Little Tikes water table. And all these years later, this Little Tikes classic is still a perfect item for summer fun. Water tables are perfect for toddlers, especially if a pool is not an option. Plus, there are so many different versions now too. Check out the Little Tikes website for all the current water table options.
Discover a New Board Game Like Mind the Gap
Many families are tired of all the screen time and are turning to good old board games for fun and quality time together. I got my hands on a super fun new board game that is perfect for every generation in the family. Mind the Gap by SolidRoots is a trivia board game that asks questions from about the Boomer, Gen X, Millennial and Gen Z generations. Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, parents and kids will all have a blast. And if you know your stuff, you’re sure to slay! (That’s Millennial for win ya know.) This game is due to start shipping in July so check it out here and get on the list.
No Theatre Movie Programs, Try the Drive-In Instead
One of the most popular posts I write each summer is my Summer movie programs list (and the COlimnbus Calendar of all the offerings). Well sadly in theatre movies are still on hold. But that means that many families are discovering the joy of the drive-in. Check out the South Drive-In or the Easton Sunset Series for your next family movie night or date night.
