1. Have a Picnic: An easy, fun and free thing to do this summer is to have a picnic with your friends. Plan a picnic in a park (or even someone’s yard) and bring a blanket, some sandwiches, fruit and enjoy some sun.  

2. Have a Fire: Have a backyard fire and enjoy some s’mores and good conversation with friends. 

3. Go the the Pool/Beach: Find an outdoor pool or beach and go there for an afternoon. If the space allows, bring a volleyball and play, no net is needed, its just for fun. 

4. Get Starbucks: Go with friends to a coffee shop (i.e Starbucks) and sit outside with your beverage. If there are no tables available, sit on the grass nearby and just talk!

5. Go to an Amusement Park: Take a friend and go on rides, play games, and eat some yummy food!

6. Bike Ride: Go for a bike ride. 

7. Go Camping: Go camping or set up a tent in your yard and watch the stars at night. 

8. Go on a Walk or Hike: Head out and do some hiking or go on a walk around the block. Go with your dog, sibling or bring a friend. If no-one’s available, or you need some alone time, take your headphones with you and listen to one of our favourite playlists, or to your favourite podcast.

9. Sleep In: Let yourself sleep in. Close your curtains, wear some comfy pyjamas, and just let yourself rest. It’s been a long school year.

10. Take Up Gardening: Plant some flowers and herbs in pots and enjoy them all season long. You can even grow some yummy fruits and then enjoy them as a snack.
