Late Summer Activities

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

Summer break may be over, but we still have about a month before the official start of fall. And since we call Arkansas home, there is no telling what weather we will be enjoying on the first day of fall (September 22 for those who want to count down). The days are starting to shorten but there is still lots of fun to be had and memories to make before summer 2021 comes to an end!

1. Catch a sunset on the lake! Okay, you can do this any time of year! But when it’s still warm enough for a dip in the lake it is just all the more satisfying.

2. Get outside at night and play with glow sticks! Those earlier sunsets mean it’s easier to get out with little ones who may have had bedtimes while it was still light out before.

3. Have dinner around a campfire. Hobo dinners are easy and can be cooked right on the fire! (Google hobo dinner recipes for what to try!) Fall is often when we think of campfires, why not enjoy the last of summer with one.

4. Camp in your yard. My big kiddo has been asking to do this, and I think we need to soon before the nights get too cool for him. Maybe your family needs to do it, too!

5. Go out for ice cream- anytime is a good time for ice cream but while the weather is still so hot there is just so much satisfaction in getting a nice cold ice cream.

6. Have a family picnic. Does everyone else’s kids eat way more around a picnic table? It only works at the one in our yard because the one at the park is just too exciting. But having a picnic in our backyard is an expected hack for getting my kids to eat more and the perfect late summer activity.

7. Cast a line! If you haven’t been fishing all summer it is the perfect after school or weekend activity to extend your summer fun even though school has started back. Even if you spent your whole summer fishing, it’s never a bad idea to go again.

8. Jump in a body of water/have a water balloon fight/just get wet! There is only so much of the year it’s warm enough for water activities. While it’s still warm, get out and cool off!
