Summer Activities For Kids For Your Next Park Day
You know how beneficial unstructured, outdoor playtime is for your child’s development, but during quarantine that can be hard to achieve. Encouraging them to get outside with these fun, family-friendly activities can help your family stay active during the Summer of 2020.
Fly A Kite
This family classic is the center of many people’s fond childhood memories. Plus, in teaching your kids just what it takes to get a kite off the ground, you can teach them about speed, lift, drag, and other important lessons. It’s outdoor time and a science lesson, all in one!
Pack A Picnic
Miss dining out together as a family? Grab lunch in your local park! (As a Sutter Park resident, your local park is just a short walk from your front door, at the community’s heart!) A picnic lunch is an easy little adventure to give you and your kids a change of scenery.
Go Bird Watching
A little bird watching is a great way to get outside while sneaking in a little science lesson. (Or squirrel watching, here in Sacramento.) Encourage your kids to draw the pictures of what they find searching for birds, bugs, and other local wildlife!
Make family memories by sharing your favorite family sport with your family. The rolling lawns of your local park are perfect for a game of frisbee. Or, take advantage of other local parks’ amenities for a game of basketball or volleyball!
Ride A Bike
The spacious, tree-studded sidewalks of Sutter Park are perfect for an evening’s bike ride after work.
