22 Summer Activities For The Family + Win a Shaun The Sheep Prize Pack
I’ve been trying to come up with summer activities and goals for my family and I for a few months. After a not-so-exciting summer last year, I knew I wanted to create a family summer bucket list. We wasted a lot of the summer last year with doing nothing (well, not nothing, Netflix is a thing isn’t it?). When we had a record snow fall this summer, I said to my husband that this year we were going to take full advantage of the summer and create some memories as a family. My son is three now, and he’s at the age where we can do a lot of fun things together.
Summer Activities Bucket List:
Here are my personal summer activities bucket list, be sure to share your own in the comments!
- Play more tennis, and learn the rules of the game (right now it’s a win if we can get a streak going).
- Go fishing and teach the little guy how to cast.
- Have my son catch his first fish.
- Teach my son T-Ball and register him for a team
- On August 5th, cool off in the theater and watch the new movie, Shaun the Sheep: The Movie. It will be our first theater experience as a family.
- Try S.U.P (stand up paddle-boarding).
- 3 words: Backyard camp out.
- Hike the local mountain trails.
- Teach my son how golf.
- Golf at least twice a month, bonus points if I can par a few holes.
- Finally run that 5k, with my son biking beside me.
- Visit the local hobby farm and introduce my toddler to the baby animals.
- Create the perfect BBQ sauce.
- Vis it and support the local Farmer’s Market on Saturday’s
- Spend as much time at the lake as possible.
- Put our new fire pit to good use, and roast as many marshmallows as our stomachs will allow.
- Go on our first real family vacation to Kelowna.
- Remember to be a tourist, and stop at attractions we believe Carter would like to see. It’s important to me that we’re not in a massive rush to get there.
- Visit the Kettle Valley Train in Summerland.
- Visit and participate in the activities at Myra Canyon
- Water fights!
- Take tons of photos and make many memories
Shaun the Sheep: The Movie – is a feature film based on the beloved children’s TV show of the same name. When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home. It’s a hilarious, fun family film, created by the animation house, Aardman (creators of Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run). Shaun the Sheep: The Movie – Theatrical Release is the must-see film for young children. Shaun the Sheep is in theaters on August 5th. Check out the trailer for Shaun The Sheep here.
