I have to be honest: I’m looking forward to the change in season. Change is good, and fall makes me think of new beginnings, which is exciting. But there’s something special about summer, and knowing that it’s coming to an end makes me just a little bit sad. Well, maybe not sad, but I know I’m going to miss it. Which is why I’ve been thinking about how to make the most of these last summer days- know what I mean? You know you do, so check out my list of ways to enjoy summer while it’s still here!
1. Have a picnic:
Eating outdoors is so summery and fun. And a picnic is a really easy way to enjoy that, so pack up a basket and head to the park. You actually don’t even have to go anywhere to enjoy a picnic; spread out a blanket and picnic in your own backyard!
2. Take a short road trip:
Here’s another one where you don’t have to go far. Take a day trip, or even just a quick ride to the next town, and walk around like tourists. And don’t forget the fun snacks for the car!
3. Go to the beach or pool:
Yup- get in the last few beach or pool days while you can!
4. Go for ice cream:
Of course you can eat ice cream all year round, but a trip to the ice cream store while the weather is still warm is different, somehow.
5. Go to the farmer’s market:
Take the family to the farmer’s market to enjoy the last of local summer produce. Then go home and cook a meal with your finds.
6. Go to a pick-your-own farm:
This is a great end of summer activity for kids because it’s fun and it’s a good lesson on where our food comes from.
7. Read outside:
Grab a good book and some lemonade, and get comfortable in a hammock or lounge chair.
Make the most of the last days of summer, and get ready for a fabulous fall!
