Summer Family Activity Guide

School’s almost out and summer is officially here! Now that the family has more free time, make the best of it with some of these fun outdoor activities. We can’t wait to get outside, catch some rays and, most importantly, spend more time with the family!

Backyard Camping

Don’t have time for a quick weekend getaway? Travel no further than your backyard by setting up a mini campsite. Dust off the sleeping bags, tents and spend the night underneath the stars.

Get the full experience by preparing this campfire favourite: Stuffed & Wrapped Hot Dogs!

Bike Ride & Picnic:

Taking in the scenery is one of the best parts of summer weather! The flowers are in full bloom and the green pastures are truly uplifting. What better way to spend the day with your family then staying active and taking a bike ride in search of the perfect picnic spot (Both Parks Canada and www.alltrails.com/ have a great list of biking/hiking trails in several regions across Canada).

Take a break from your exploring and settle down for a simple picnic with this quick and fresh BLT Sandwich recipe.

Neighbourhood Potluck

Just moved in? Looking to get to know your neighbours? Or your neighbours are some of your best friends? There’s always an excuse to host a summer potluck! Assign a dish, send out the invites and make sure to have plenty of outdoor activities for the kids.

Make hosting a breeze by preparing these quick and delicious Chicken Skewers with Peanut Sauce recipe.

Yard Games

Getting outdoors doesn’t always have to be a long-distance expedition. Get the family outside and active this summer by setting up some lawn game favourites in your yard. Teach your kids the importance of teamwork with a friendly match of badminton, Bocce or Twister – or simply throw the ball or frisbee around!

Hosting people for lawn games? Try out this delicious Mustard-y Sausage Rolls recipe.
