5 Activities to Keep the Family Entertained This Summer

The summer of 2020 will be a little bit different to years gone by, but there’s still plenty you can do to keep the family entertained.

While finding things that everyone can enjoy is sometimes tricky, it’s still great to get outside in the fresh air and enjoy life with the whole family, so consider these 5 activities. Whether your indoors or outdoors, these tips will help to keep everyone entertained.

Take Up a New Sport

It’s been great to see everyone out running and on bicycles, and long may it continue! Summer is the best time to pick up a new sport, and it can be a great family activity.

No matter what it is your family enjoys, you can get out and do it all together, so why not give something new a go? Tons of sports are safe in the current climate, and they can offer years of fun and health benefits.

Explore the Local Area

We forget what there is to see in our own back yards. Once you get out and about, you realize there are tons of amazing things to see in your local area, and it’s something the whole family can do.

If you need some wheels, then check out car hire Burton On Trent and see where you end up. Sometimes it’s nice to go out there with a rough plan and just go where the road takes you. There is a lot to see, and you’re bound to have a fun time doing some family bonding.

Do Some Cooking 

If you are stuck inside without much to do, then a great activity to keep everyone entertained can be cooking.

Not only is it something everyone can be involved in, but it’s also a fantastic skill to have. It doesn’t matter if you’re not the world’s best chef, you can always find YouTube videos and recipes that are easy to follow along with.

Get Arty 

This is one you can do indoors and out, and it can keep everyone entertained for long periods, particularly the kids.

It’s a great to be able to create something from scratch, and all it takes are a few basic art supplies. Whether it’s painting, papier mache, sculpting, or whatever you want to turn your hand to, it’s lots of fun, and everyone can get into it.

You never know, you might find that someone’s got a hidden talent for art, and you’ve got lots of new things to hang on your wall.

The Classic Board Game 

Sometimes when the weather’s miserable, you just feel like staying in and relaxing. We’re all used to looking at screens in modern times, though, so sometimes it’s nice to do something different and play a board game.

Again, it’s something the whole family can get involved in, and it can provide hours of entertainment. Classics like Scrabble, Monopoly, Jenga, and Cluedo never go out of fashion, and they’re a great way to get the family interacting with each other and having a fun time.
