NOSTALGIC SUMMER ACTIVITIES Summer is here and so is the urge to head outside and explore the world. But if you’re like most Canadians, you have a budget to stick to. Thankfully, there are many activities you can do that won’t break the bank. If you have children, these ideas are sure to entertain them on those lazy summer days. Even if you don’t have children, you can get nostalgic and recreate the highlights of your summers spent as a child. 1. Head to a local field with a kite and spend time running around catching the perfect drift. 2. Set up a tent in the back yard and watch scary movies under the stars. 3. Grab a case of sidewalk chalk and let your imagination run wild – design your own hopscotch or obstacle course or just add your own art to a piece of cement. 4. Play hide and seek, tag, soccer or another of your favourite childhood games at the park. 5. Create your own bubble solution with dish soap, water and corn syrup and blow bubbles to your heart’s content. 6. After a rainfall, set toothpick ships sailing down the street, go splash in the puddles, or help worms make their way home. Regardless how you spend your summer days, making memories will be something you cherish for years to come.
