Activities to Do Over the Summer!

Activities to Do Over the Summer!

Autumn Larsen, Co-Editer

Summer break is near! Here are a few things you can do over the summer

  • Chalk Drawings – everywhere, on the driveway, on the roads, on the sidewalks (be reasonable)
  • Swimming! Go to Joanne’s Water Park or take a trip with your family or friends or even by yourself to different lakes and rivers. One suggestion is Neshotah Park.
  • Biking – We have a lot of trails here in Green Bay! For example the Fox River trail.
  • Go to Bay Beach with others!
  • Wildlife Sanctuary – Feed the geese, and visit it’s other animals
  • Go to the Farmer’s Market! Get some cheese curds, shaved ice and sugar snap peas. Mmmm, yummy.
  • Play as many board games as you can! Games like Apples to Apples and Monopoly.
  • Have bonfires. That is always a fun classic thing to do. Make dinner over your bonfire perhaps. Roast hot dogs and marshmallows
  • Go camping!
  • Sleep under the stars
  • Make tie-dye things! T-shirts, socks, pillowcases, etc.
  • Read as many books as you can. Find what you’re interested in and read more about it! Or discover what genre of books you like
  • Have a water balloon fight
  • Have a squirt gun fight
  • Try out grilling! With supervision, of course
  • Learn how to braid or french braid
  • Make friendship bracelets! An amazing way to pass the time
  • Don’t be afraid to get dirty and messy! Roll around in the mud.
  • Play lawn games such as lawn darts, ladder climb, bean bag toss, kick ball, etc.
  • Go backyard camping. Set up a tent in your backyard and pretend to be camping! (with the luxury of your house bathroom)
  • Catch frogs!
  • Go to Baird’s Creek
  • Listen to a new genre of music. You may be surprised! I suggest the works of Andrea Bocelli or Paganini. Also, check out some classic rock. That really hits the spot.
  • Go kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, boating of any sort, if possible! Super fun.
  • Smile to others while you are out and about
  • Be active! Go for walks, runs, hikes, etc.
  • While your out dress and pretend to be a different person!
  • Explore different styles
  • Go thrift shopping! You will find amazing things.
  • Pick flowers and put them in a vase in your home
  • Take pictures of yourself and others. You could pretend you are a warrior or royalty while taking these pictures
  • Find out more about your heritage and where you come from if possible! For example, I am mostly German with French, Scandinavian (Danish, I want to say) and Polish.
  • ┬áIf you are going to college next year and living in a dorm compile a list of things you need or want for school life and dorm life.
  • Lay in the grass while listening to good happy music or don’t listen to music. Listen to the sounds of the leaves and the wind.
  • Go kite flying!
  • When it’s raining, put on a bathing suit (or stay in your clothes I suppose) and dance in the rain! Have fun!
  • Visit waterfalls. Places like Fonfericks or Wequiock falls.
  • Catch bugs and put them in jars or containers to observe them.
  • Get something from an ice cream truck
  • Go strawberry picking!
  • Make new friends! I know, harder than it sounds. Believe me, I know. But at least try!
  • Spend time with your elders. Listen to what they have to say and listen to their stories of life. Maybe even record it and/or write stuff down!
  • Get a sun tan!
  • Go listen to some outdoor music and concerts
  • Go to the Neville Museum!
