Whether you're vacationing in Florida, planning a day at the beach, try a few activities below to enjoy the sunny days with the whole family!

  • Head to the beach and fly a kite. Then take a dip in the water to cool off!

  • Take a walk around your neighborhood and soak up a few rays from the sun.

  • Take a bike ride as a family. Plan a route around your neighborhood and set off on an adventure, together.

  • Pack a few sandwiches, drink boxes, and other easy treats and have a picnic. Go to a local park or set outside in your own backyard and simply enjoy each others company, while you feast in the sunshine.

  • Pay animals a visit at your local zoo.

  • Make your own hopscotch course on the sidewalk and make a game of it.

  • Gather up a few good books, and go outdoors and read. Find a swing at a local park, or set up lawn chairs in your backyard.

  • Go to a local playground and play! Swing on swings, slide on slides, teeter on the teeter-totter, play on the jungle gym … hey, they say you’re only as old as what you feel. So have fun and just enjoy the playtime!

  • Get a Slip-and-Slide or sprinkler and run around to cool yourself off. Make a game of it and see who can slide the farthest on the Slip-and-Slide, or jump the farthest over the sprinkler.

  • If it’s a rainy day, play hide and seek indoors. Then make chocolate chip cookies afterwards.
