20 Outdoor Summer Activities for Kids

Lately, mornings have been fresh with a light breeze but once it turns 1pm it’s a whole new story. We have a lake nearby and lots of mountains but it’s still is very hot after 1pm. I can’t complain, I love this weather and it doesn’t compare to where I used to live in El Paso, TX where the summer days are over 100F and dry hot wind.

I have gather a few Ideas I love to try with my toddler this summer. Its time to go outdoors and have fun around nature; with water, plants or just by simply walking out. I hope you do get inspired to get out and have fun with the kiddos and try some of these outdoor summer activities.
