Summer is billed as a time of excitement and fun, but for too many people, it ends up being a season of boredom. This is especially true for children and teens because they have a long break during the months that school is closed. Make a change this season and liven up your summer break with activities like these:
Change Up Your Hairstyle
Summer is a great time for teens to experiment with new hairstyles because if one doesn’t work out, the whole school won’t see it. If it does work well, it can be kept into the school year to wow everyone with the new look. Adults can also use summer as a time for new hairstyles. Try a new haircut, a new color or even just a new hairdo. Experiment and have some fun!
Play Pool Games
Whether you play Marco Polo, swim laps and race or enjoy pool floats/tubes, you’ll have more fun in the water if you get a game going. Plenty of land games have water versions and are easy to adapt to the pools at Addison Park.
Paint Your Sun Hat
If you’re into crafting, you’ll love dressing up your sun hat by painting it with fresh, new designs. Use an old hat for a more earthy look, or use a new one if you’d prefer a more polished appearance. Either way, you’ll have something to do for the day and you’ll get a fresh look for the rest of the summer.
Catch Up On Your Favorite Shows
Sitting at home watching Netflix or another favored provider may not seem like a “summer activity,” but this is actually the perfect season for catching up on missed episodes. If you know others who like the same programs, you can use a binge-watching session as a great excuse to get together and hang out. To keep it fun, avoid simply sitting on the couch and staring at the TV or laptop. Instead, make some popcorn, get out the soda, and dim the lights for a theater-like experience.
