Summer may be almost over, but there is still plenty of time for you and your family to soak up everything that makes the season great: sunshine, tasty treats, and age-old activities that will make you feel like a kid again. Even during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s still possible to have a summer to remember, if you follow our suggestions and try this 4 fun, low-cost, socially distanced activities.
Have a picnic.
This year, treat your family or partner to a classic summertime activity: a picnic! Plan a simple menu filled with light, easy-to-eat foods, like finger sandwiches, fresh fruit, and individual bags of potato chips. Then, pick a cozy spot in a local park or within your apartment community and enjoy a relaxing morning or afternoon with tasty eats and your favorite people.
Find a new hobby.
Given strict social distancing mandates, you might be looking for a way to stay entertained. Achieve just that by trying out a new hobby. Worried about failing at something new? You might be more inclined to succeed during the summer when serotonin - our body’s natural “happy” hormone, which is produced by sunshine - will be at a yearly high.
Make your own ice cream.
Ice cream is a very versatile dessert, great served in a sandwich, cone, or bowl. But, if we had to guess, we’d say you already know that! If you haven’t tried making your own ice cream at home, know that it can be a really simple process – even if you don’t have any fancy equipment. Just perform a Google search for “ice cream in a bag” recipes. You’ll thank us later!
Learn how to fly a kite.
Kite flying is a perennial summertime favorite for the young and young at heart. As a child, you probably had a kite and knew how to fly it. Why not re-learn the skill as an adult? Kites are inexpensive and easy to find at dollar stores. Plus, flying a kite is trickier than it looks, which is sure to keep you engaged as you work to complete the challenge.
