You already think of hot weather, maybe a vacation, and kids out of school, but this summer, let's do something new! Don't look longingly at others social media who appear to be doing much more exciting things than you while yours features the same 'feet by the pool' pic as last year. Listen, you don't have to travel to exotic locations to make an unforgettable summer, you just gotta push past all the typical ideas and try something new! Since BambooandWool.com is all about innovative ideas for going green and fashion with our bamboo and wood sunglasses, we know how to push past the norm! So grab your sunglasses, head outside, and check out our 5 must-try activities for this summer!
DIY Backyard Movie Screen - There's something magical about being able to watch a movie or tv outside, and enjoy a warm summer night. And guess what? You don't have to be rich and have an expensive set-up in your backyard to make this happen! You just need a few easy supplies and a projector, and Voila! Movie time!
Geocache- You're never too old for a real live treasure hunt, and that's pretty much exactly what this is. It's an app that leads you to navigate specific GPS coordinates to search for your geocache (hidden treasure). For a different outdoor activity, get a group of people together, or maybe assemble two teams, and see who can find the most cache!
Early Morning Stretch- Before you laugh this one off or skip reading this one altogether (you know you were considering it) don't! One of the best parts of summer is the early morning. It's crisp, fresh smell and feel is amazing, and all too often not taken advantage of. Doing early morning stretch outdoors not only let's you breathe that freshness in, but it's good for your body and a great way to start your day! You can probably find a group that does stretch in a park near you, or learn the basics from a video, grab a mat, and head outside!
Murder Mystery Dinner Party- Summer is the best time to get together with friends. The weather is warm, everyone is more relaxed, and that spells a good time! But switch up the usual BBQ, and throw a murder mystery dinner party! You can purchase an already written murder mystery dinner instructions online or at a local board game store. Between coming dressed in costume and the play of 'who dunnit" it will create unique and lasting memories this summer!
Ziplining- If you're not an 'adrenaline junkie' but still want to experience that crazy activity this summer, go ziplining! You can get that rush of adrenaline and a bucket list activity without having to jump out of a plane. This is a perfect in-between option!
So remember, this is your summer! Don't let yourself get stuck in a rut; just get a fresh perspective and try some different experiences. Pretty soon, you will have the social media everyone is envious of! Make sure you subscribe to our blog for more upcoming ideas!
