Summer Break Fun

As a homeschooler, I LOVED summer break.  I was fortunate enough to be one the homeschoolers that actually did get a summer break, and as much as I adored school (I’m pretty sure I was one of the biggest overachievers in existence), I could not wait for summer break once May came around.

Not only is summer my favorite season overall, but I loved taking the break from school to focus on other projects during the summer.  If you are looking for fun activities to do during summer vacation, I’ve compiled a few of my favorite summertime pleasures for your perusal!

  • Reading an entire book series.  Summer is the perfect time for me to enjoy a new fiction series!

  • Going to the movies.  Nearly all the biggest movies come out during the summer.

  • Late night ice cream.  Warm nights, good friends, late night ice cream stops.

  • Running.  I do love a nice trail and the pride of a good workout.

  • Binging Netflix.  You know those shows you don’t have time to watch during the school year?  Now’s the time to grab popcorn and watch them.

  • Purging your closet.  I love using the extra time on my hands to donate everything I don’t need.

  • Nighttime walks.  There’s just something about summer nights that are magical.

  • Hiking.  Soak in that Vitamin D!

  • Outdoor movie night!  Hang a sheet over your garage and grab the projector.  Popcorn, soda, and candy recommended.

  • Game nights!  Charades, Apples to Apples, Catch Phrase, Egyptian Rat Slap….

  • Bowling.  Better yet, make it Cosmic Bowling!

  • Ice Skating.  It’s hot, so why not see if your ice rink is open during the summer?
