10 Summer Fun Ideas to Try at Home

Jamie here!  Although we’ve already started posting Back to School deals ….  summer’s not over yet, and there’s still plenty of time to make the best of it!

Having fun doesn’t have to cost money – or even require you to leave home.  In fact – some of my kids’ favorite things to do require only that I drop everything and dive into pretend play or poke holes in the lid of a mason jar.  Here is my list of 10 Summer Fun Ideas To Do In Your Yard:

1.) Flashlight Tag.

The thrill of hide-n-seek lies in the fearfully giddy waiting period – while the seeker wanders about the yard yelling “GOTCHA” at the unlucky.  The thrill is heightened to a new level when done in the dark – with flashlights!  Grab some neighborhood kids to join in – and then sit back in your lawn chair with iced tea to supervise.

2.) Homemade Bubbles & Bubble-Makers.

Reuse Empty Candle Jars | Seashell Display for Summer

shells-in-jars-tall

Jamie here, I’m always looking for new ways to reuse empty candle jars around my house.  After I’d figured out how to get wax out of candle jars (and I mean COMPLETELY!)  I had them in the window sill drying in the sunshine and they just looked so pretty grouped together like that.

Love these!!

I decided to fill them using the seashells we’d collected during our last couple beach trips and grouped them together for a summery seascape.

I have a little confession to make – you see all those perfect cute starfish and sand dollars and shiny conch shells??  Yeah… I didn’t find those on the beach.

We bought a bag of them in a gift shop on our way ouf of town to supplement our massive sad buckets of broken shells.  I felt like a cheater-cheater at the time, but now I’m totally good with that purchase  ;)

I love that this project is simple and clean looking.  

If you don’t have lots of seashells to reuse empty candle jars around your house – you could also display pretty rocks for an earthy vibe and nestle a tealight into the center :)
