2. Have a Picnic

Go to your nearest park or sit outside on the grass by yourself or with a friend. Bring a basket filled with food/snacks that you like and a good book to read as you enjoy the weather. You could also bring a board game or do other activities with someone.

3. Take a Road Trip

Taking a road trip with family can be a good way to explore and find new places. You can make a list of things that you want to do along the way or what places to visit.

4. Start a Garden

Gardening can be fun for many people and you do not need as much space as you think. Even if you just have a few pots it is still exciting to try new things and watch your seedlings grow.

5. Go to the Beach

Take a trip to the beach with friends and family. Walk around in the sand, look for shells, and build sand castles.

6. Water Balloon Fight

When the weather gets a bit too hot and you are bored, have a water balloon fight. Fill up a bunch of balloons with water and throw them at all of your friends.

7. Pick up a New Book

Sometimes we just want to be inside where it is cold but don’t know what to do. Reading a book can be fun as you enter a new world.
