Summer Play List

After doing 16 months of hard time during lockdown, you definitely had time to itemize your summer bucket list. The challenge may actually be prioritizing the list – have you ever squeezed 10 lbs of manure into a 5 lbs sac? We missed so many people, excursions and activities over the past year, that there’s an urgency to make up for lost time. And although the knee-jerk, whisper under-your-breath, impulsive response is to run from your family, towards friends and strangers, faster than Usain Bolt can run the 100 m dash, the realistic, responsible, outside voice, reminds us, that you should probably include your family in your summer plans too. So start making your summer playlist, and creating the next pages in your family’s yearbook.

Top 5 Summer Family Play List

  1. Family reunions, no matter the size, are a must. Both you and your kids have new cousins to meet, old family to catch-up with, and some events you may need to celebrate. Extended family are some of the most loyal friends you will have in your life.
  2. Take me out to the ball game. Nothing says summer to some, more than sounds and smells of a ball game. Whether it’s competitive or recreational, local or professional, watching your favourite team on a hot steamy night while swatting mosquitos and June bugs is a great way to build lasting family memories.
  3. Group Camping is more fun for both adults and kids. No matter what type of camper you are, from Coleman to the Comfort Inn, organize a camping weekend with others. The more the merrier. 
  4. Backyard BBQs are the perfect add to your play list mix. Food, drink, music, games, friends and laughter. It’s the perfect prescription for lockdown low. They are also great in combination with 5, 4, 3 and 1.
  5. Fireworks are a long weekend staple in Ontario. The experience is as grass roots as it comes. It’s hard not to look forward to watching children delight in the sounds and colours, surrounded by community.
