We made it to Summer 2014 -The solstice heralds the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. In 2014, the solstice falls on June 21 at 4:51AM our time.

Think back to -25 in February, a foot of snow or more on Mother’s Day. We’ve had enough. Winter began for me in Alaska in October 2013 and moved to Wyoming in December 2013. I never thought cold weather would end. We’ll kids, it’s over this Saturday. The first day of Summer.

Here’s a list of 20 things you can do with the kids, who always say there’s nothing to do. 

  1. Invent a new type of pizza.
  2. Make a music video.
  3. Grow a tomato or sunflower plant.
  4. Walk barefoot through the grass.
  5. Build a sandcastle.
  6. Have a neighborhood dunk tank.
  7. Picnic at a local park.
  8. Make the best ice cream sandwich ever.
  9. Have an overnight movie marathon.
  10. Play Frisbee golf.
  11. Have a car wash to fund raise for a club or charity.
  12. Grab a blanket, spread it out in the grass and cloud watch.
  13. Make a handmade card for a friend.
  14. Bike five miles.
  15. Catch bugs.
  16. Eat the best banana split ever.
  17. Take a nap under a shade tree.
  18. Go swimming.
  19. Have a pool party.
  20. Play with water balloons.
Getting out of the house for a few hours can put your tween in a good mood, and it can be completely free of charge. Consider a bike ride together, or visit one of your local parks for a short walk in the woods. If you own fishing equipment, it could be fun to spend a few hours angling for a catch together. Just be sure to wear sunscreen and bring bug spray, just in case.
We have so much to do in Wyoming, most of it won’t cost a dime.
