Looking for daily inspiration and ideas for things to do with kids this week? From at-home family fun, to winter…
There’s no denying this will be a tough school year. With so many uncertainties, it’s a challenge to enjoy these last few weeks of summer but try to find time and make the most of it. Summer 2020 is one we’ll never forget, let’s end it on a high note!
Splash & Play
Put on the swimsuits and sunscreen and enjoy the sunshine. Whether you want a quick trip to a local splash park or an afternoon in the sand at the beach, nothing says summer more than getting wet and having fun with water.
See A Movie on the Big Screen
Let the kids stay up past their bedtime and watch a movie outside. Go to the local drive-in or cuddle up for a special one-night only event to see your Disney and childhood favorites.
Have a No-Phone Day
Put the phone away for a day and party like it’s 1999. Take in mother nature and rake up a few more hours for the #1000 Hours Outside challenge with a nature walk at one of the popular trails in metro Detroit.
Enjoy A Family Dinner
Pick out ingredients at the u-pick farm or farmers market, have them delivered to your door by Michigan Fields or pick up a chicken dinner to-go at Guernsey, pack a picnic blanket and find the perfect place to sit al fresco. Whether you’re looking for waterfront views or a picture perfect setting, metro Detroit offers some great picnic spots. After you eat, don’t forget to stop for a cool treat before heading home.
