I’m not sure how these summer months have slipped away from me so quickly, but it’s time to close out the remaining summer days that we have – while having fun with it! Here are a few ways to do so and enjoy these warm days with your family:
Enjoy the time with your children
Going from having every single day with your children to just in the evenings + on the weekends can be a challenging switch of pace for a lot of families. However, you still have the opportunity to enjoy the time that you do have with your children! When they get home, go ahead and get any homework taken care of, and then enjoy the rest of your evening outside. Soon, the weather will turn colder and you won’t have the opportunity to do this as much, so go ahead and enjoy the sun while you have a chance! You could eat watermelon by the pool, start a sprinkler in the backyard, or go to a playground. Even a picnic in the backyard could be a great way to have a fun evening with your children.
Plan one last trip
I know that most kids have started school again already, but if you are able to, plan one last trip! Maybe a weekend trip? Or, if that is not an option, plan an upcoming trip. Having something to look forward to and the anticipation of an upcoming event can change your entire mindset about your summer coming to a close. Several studies have shown that just thinking about a trip you plan to go on boosts happiness.
Get back on track with finances
The summer months usually call for more spending, but it’s time to get back on track with your finances, especially if you are running your own business like I am.

Have fun with games
Have fun with some games! There are so many to choose from, but one of my favorites is a scavenger hunt! Create a scavenger hunt by hiding household items or toys around your yard. Write down a list of things hidden (so nothing gets forgotten!) and give the kids clues. The alternative is hiding “treasure” all in one spot but makes a map for your young pirates to follow.
Look forward to fun fall activities
I know that your kids might feel a bit down in the dumps thanks to school starting back up again and summer coming to a close, but get them excited for fall weather and activities! Wearing cozy sweaters, apple picking, and apple cider, reading by the fire, enjoying going for long walks in the park with cooler temperatures, and pumpkin patches – just a few things to get excited about for fall.
Plan a pool party
What better way to get the kids excited about the start of the school year than a pool party? If you know who is going to be in your children’s classes this upcoming year, go ahead and invite them out for some fun in the sun! Get King of Pops or a different popsicle or snow cone company lined up to!
