It can be a bit overwhelming when you’re living in a city filled with wondrous summer getaways. With a wide array of tourist destinations, looking for an escapade with the family can be a tough decision. Don’t worry, if you haven’t decided on your summer escapade yet, here are 7 fun activities that will make you and your family beam in the “City of Smiles.”
Make ice cream sandwiches
What better way to beat the heat than this delicious treat? Ice cream is one of the most important food of the summer. It helps you cool down, it’s a yummy treat both for kids and adults, and it steams down hot heads. Ice cream sandwiches are not that hard to do. Bake some cookies (or brownies) then pair them off with the ice cream flavor of your choice. To make this even more delightful, top them off with sprinkles or M&M’s!
Have a backyard luau
Yes, you can turn your backyard into a tropical paradise. Create a lively, tropical atmosphere replete with festive colors. There’s nothing quite like a luau to enjoy everything that this sultry season brings: warm temperature, shakes and smoothies and an array of tropical food items that will help you celebrate the fleeting days of summer.
…or a backyard campfire
A campfire is a great addition to your backyard. It’s an entertaining and cozy way to sit together, chat and enjoy roasted hotdogs or tasty s’mores under the stars.
Here’s a way to adorn your home in Bacolod without having to spend a huge amount of money. All you need are recycled cans, paint and miniature plants. First, you have to get your kids creative with the used cans. Second, fill your cans with rocks (for drainage) and a small scoop of soil. The last step is to carefully add in the small plant and you can now have your very own mini garden.
Make homemade pizza
One of the best feelings in the world is sharing a whole pan of warm pizza with your loved ones. Getting in the kitchen together, where everyone gets to pitch in their own pizza ideas is a simple but enjoyable way to get your kids busy this summer.
Create your own glamping site
You don’t have to go too far to go glamping. You can now experience the great outdoors without having to spend thousands. Setting up those tents may be a tedious work but you can gather the kids to help you pitch them up. Just make sure to bring a bug zapper along.
There are a ton of board games that you and your family can engage in. Your fun night does not have to be that complicated. Just take out a board game like Monopoly and enjoy it while munching on your homemade pizza.
It’s good to break away from technology every once in a while. Engaging in these kinds of recreational activities with your kids is a cool and different way to have an unforgettable summer in your house and lot in Bacolod.
