No one likes being stuck inside for too long, even when Royal Heating & Air makes the house feel super comfortable. With the weather getting more sunny and clear every day, there are a lot of great things to do outside with the whole family. Get some fresh air and have a great time with these ideas from our team at Royal Heating & Air!
Set up the tent in your back yard and pack up like you're going on a true camping trip, sleeping bags and all! Make fun snacks to enjoy in the tent while you spend time together as a family. See who can make the most realistic wildlife sounds, and maybe even tell a ghost story or two. If possible, make a fire and roast some s'mores for good, old-fashioned camping fun!
Go for a Walk or Bike Ride
It may sound a little mundane, but you might be surprised how relaxing and refreshing a walk or bike ride with the family can be. Walking is actually a really great form of exercise, allowing your muscles to stretch and shake off the dust, so to speak.
Make a Scavenger Hunt
Make a list of items to search for in the backyard or on the hiking trail and split up into teams to see who can collect, or take photos, of all the items on the list first! Pine cones, dandelions, a rock shaped like heart... get creative!
Play with Sidewalk Chalk
Chalk is a classic, fun way to spend time outdoors. Work together to make a big, beautiful picture in the driveway, play hopscotch or tic-tac-toe, trace each other on the sidewalk and complete your self-portraits. Chalk is a great way to explore you and your children's imagination.
Have a Picnic
Whether you have access to a park, or simply a picnic blanket in the yard, making a special meal together and eating outside in the fresh air can feel like a special treat for the kiddos. Especially if you include a fun element that they don't get to have every day... Cut their sandwich or fruit pieces into fun shapes or bake cookies together.
Make Natural Bird Feeders
Gather pine cones and attach string to the top like an ornament. Spread peanut butter over the cones and then roll them in birdseed to make a tasty treat for the birds. Hang your creations in the trees or on the deck railing and watch the birds flock to the yard... Now you have the added bonus of being able to bird-watch and learn how to identify the different kinds of birds native to your area.
Get on the Water
Even if you don't have a boat, there are a lot of ways to enjoy the water at the Lake of the Ozarks. While the water is too cold for swimming right now, there is a lot of fun to be had canoeing or kayaking with the family. There are several quieter coves at the Lake that allow for a relaxing time on the water, without having to worry about large wakes from boats. Ha Ha Tonka is one of those great places, which also happens to have several picnic areas and hiking trails.
Fun at the Lake of the Ozarks
