School is almost here. Summer break is ending, and you might be looking forward to some relaxation with having a break from the kids, but they might be down in the dumps because their vacation is coming to a close. No matter your situation, it is the perfect time to get some last-minute summer fun in before the start of school.
Here is a list of last-minute summer fun activities for you and the family to embrace.
Some people love the outdoors, some people are not quite as fond of it – but a night under the stars can certainly change that. You can pitch a tent in the backyard or head out to a campsite; no matter what you decide, a night of camping with your family is a great way to spend some time bonding.
Get some ice cream.
This last-minute summer fun doesn’t even take planning. Surprise your kids one evening by taking a walk to your local ice cream shop for a scoop. You could even make your own ice cream cones at home and then take a walk around your block to enjoy one final summer evening.
The weather will only be nice for a little longer, so why not head to the beach. Check out this article for 24 best Chicago beaches.
Have a picnic.
