3 Ideas for Easy Summer Fun

Creating effortless fun for your family is the Scout Elves’ forte, and they’ve got some great ideas for how you can spend quality time with your family now that you’re on summer vacation!

1. Create a summer journal

Create a Summer Journal

What better way for your child to keep track of their summer adventures than in their very own summer journal? It makes it easy to keep track of escapades, adventures and vacations!

2. Squirt gun artist

Squirt Gun Artist

With just a few items, you can create your own summer art pieces! The best part? It involves squirt guns! Tack a piece of watercolor paper, which you can find at your local arts and crafts store, to a tree, and fill several squirt guns with different washable liquid watercolors. Let your little ones squirt the paint right onto the paper for a unique piece to hang on the fridge.

3. Host a family game day

Pass the day with a friendly family competition, just like these Scout Elves who are having a backyard polo match! Challenge your family to fly through the backyard during a long jump contest, gallop through a child-engineered obstacle course or sprint to win a three-legged race!
