Summer may look a bit different this year. Some states are reopening in full force as others are approaching the reopening phase with caution. Depending on where you live, restrictions will be different. But as we approach the reopening phase of this crisis, it’s best to proceed with caution and be responsible.
That’s why we’ve put together a coronavirus summer bucket list. This list offers safe, responsible summer bucket list ideas for you and your entire family to enjoy without worry. As we get back to normal, these activities will help you stay sane and enjoy the warm weather this summer will bring.
Picnic In The Park
Who doesn’t love a summer picnic? Picnics are a summer staple, and they’re an excellent way for you and the whole crew to enjoy the wonderful warm summer weather. Take advantage of your local park or just have a backyard picnic!
Pack up a few of your favorite sandwiches, some chips, maybe a pasta salad, and a few drinks, and you’re set! Grab your best picnic blanket, and enjoy a lovely afternoon!
Homemade Ice Cream
Coronavirus has people trying all kinds of new hobbies. People are cooking different recipes, baking bread, and so much more just to pass the time. As hotter temperatures near, the number one thing we’re all craving is a nice, cold bowl of ice cream. And since we have so much time on our hands, why not give homemade ice cream a try?
There are a variety of strategies for making homemade ice cream. An ice cream maker is an easy solution to make ice cream fast, but it can be made with the equipment you already have in your kitchen. Most ice creams only require a few ingredients, so no need to invest in expensive ingredients or materials.
Hike Your State & National Parks
State and national parks are a great getaway from hectic city life. In times like these, fresh air and nature can really be a saving grace. Parks offer so much beauty and endless trails for us to explore.
If you and your friends or family are craving an escape, take a trip to your nearest state or national park. If you’re a camper, plan a weekend trip. If you’re just looking for a quick day away from city life, there’s most likely a park near you that you can head to for just the day.
Water Activities In The Backyard
Who doesn’t love a backyard water balloon fight? Embrace your inner child and get creative with your summer bucket list. All you need is a hose, a sprinkler, and maybe some water balloons to create a fun-filled water park in your own backyard.
Divide into teams and have a water balloon fight. Lay down a tarp and let water run for a homemade slip-n-slide. Or if you’re just feeling something simple, take a few sprints through the sprinkler. It’s easier than it seems to turn your backyard into a water park!
Start A Garden
Gardening is experiencing a huge boom as people look for more and more hobbies throughout this crisis. But, starting a garden is no easy task. It takes time, patience, and care to grow a thriving garden. But, there’s no better time to try!
Start with some easier vegetables such as salad greens like lettuce and spinach. You can also try out other veggies like tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squash, and more. Be sure to research the growing conditions of each vegetable to ensure your best chances of a great garden.
We hope you’re having a great start to the summer. Stay safe and healthy, and don’t forget to keep up with your fave celebs with The Shade Room!
