One of our family favorite park activities is visiting a local spray pad park. We have a few in our city with large spray pad sprinklers and fountains that our son loves running through.
Do you know how many parks there are in your city? How many have you visited? As a family, you can create a list of all the local parks in your city and try to visit as many as you can while you have warm weather to enjoy. As a fun visual, you can purchase a local map of your city and pin the locations of all of these parks on the map on a bulletin board. You could have 3 different pin colors: 1 color for parks that you’ve visited & want to go to again, 1 color for parks that you haven’t yet visited and 1 color for parks that you’ve visited & don’t plan to visit again.
You’ll want to pack up some hats, sunscreen, sunglasses, water, a blanket to sit on in the grass and get ready to have some fun in the sun!
