Who needs technology? Ok… we do. But, this summer, show your family the value of some “old school” fun with this list of delightfully low-tech classic activities.
Take your kids on a camping trip to experience the great outdoors. Pitch a tent, build a campfire, and enjoy hiking, fishing, and stargazing activities.
2. Picnic in the Park:
Pack a delicious picnic basket with sandwiches, fruits, and snacks, and head to a nearby park. Spread out a blanket, play outdoor games, and enjoy quality time together amidst nature.
3. Bike Riding:
Teach your kids how to ride a bike and explore your neighborhood or local trails together. It’s a fun and healthy way to enjoy the summer weather outdoors.
Start a small garden in your backyard and involve your kids in planting and nurturing flowers, herbs, or vegetables. It’s a great way to teach them about nature, responsibility, and patience.
5. See a Falling Star:
Laying out on a clear summer night looking for falling stars is the best. If you wanna see a lot of them, head away from a city and all that light pollution. Your best bet for a truly spectacular show is the Perseids meteor shower, which peaks on August 12 and 13.
6. Visit the Library:
Encourage your kids to develop a love for reading by taking them to the library. Let them explore different books, choose their favorites, and spend quality time reading together.
7. Treasure Hunt:
Organize a treasure hunt in your backyard or local park. Create clues and riddles that lead your kids to different hiding spots, and let them enjoy the thrill of finding hidden treasures.
8. Board Game Marathon:
Dust off those old board games and have a marathon with your kids. Spend a lazy summer day indoors, playing classics like Monopoly, Scrabble, or Chess.
9. Visit a Local Museum or Historic Site:
Take your kids to a local museum or historical site to introduce them to history, art, or science wonders. It’s both educational and exciting.
10. Beach Day:
Pack your bags with sunscreen, towels, and sand toys, and head to the nearest beach. Spend a day building sandcastles, playing in the waves, and enjoying the sun and sea together.
Remember, these activities are designed to disconnect from technology and create meaningful experiences with your kids. Enjoy the simplicity and joy of old-school activities during the summer!
