Suggested Family Activity • Picnic 🧺

Before the summer ends, make sure you go on a picnic one day.  You can pack a traditional picnic in a wicker basket or just grab some snacks and sandwiches and head outside with a blanket to enjoy your food.  Take time to sit and really enjoy nature, whether you stay at home in your backyard or go to a nearby park.  Make sure to spend at least part of the day barefoot to enjoy the tickly sensation of walking on the grass. 🦶 You can even plan to make a whole day of it and take pillows for relaxing while you read a book.  You could also grab some coloring books and crayons 🖍 or other art supplies, such as pencils ✏ paper 📄 and paints 🎨 to try your hand at drawing and painting the natural world around you.

When your kids need to run off some energy, get the whole family together to have a 🎈 water balloon fight.  Try to stay out all day so you can catch the sunset 🌇 and have fun watching (and catching) fireflies.  Or you can wait to start your picnic time outdoors after adults are home from work.  Picnicking later in the evening by taking your supper outside to enjoy is a fun activity to try out anytime with your family.
