20 Outside Activities & Games for Kids

Summer months are here baby and I am soaking up the heat for the next few months to make up for the freezing cold of a Saskatchewan winter. My kids love to be outside, and while I am not the biggest outdoor fan I encourage them to get to out, as well as find things for them to do outside, out of the normal.

We start out our summer with a Summer Bucket List and go from there. Some blanks need to get filled in of course, but here are 20 ideas for some outside activities and games for outside summer fun with your kids.
