run wild this summer

the ‘real’ summer is yet to hit us here in auckland so we’re making the most of the zoo / indoor activities right now BUT we are hanging out for some amazing sunshine so we can tick these off our summer must-do list!

***

go chasing waterfalls there’s more than you realise in nz, including some hidden in the middle of the cities. your essential guide at www.waterfalls.co.nz

*

pick your own fruit or buy fruit from a road side stall. pretty much a kiwi summer rite of passage.

*

pitch a tent it could be at a campsite or just in your backyard. do camping for real or play camping. either way, you’ll make some fun / funny memories.

*

find a ‘secret’ beach / swimming spot somewhere that you never usually go but somewhere that will become your new favourite spot.

*

have a party even if it’s not your child’s birthday because who doesn’t love a good pool party / bbq / summer get together, and every day should be a celebration!

*

get out on the water kayaking / ferry rides / paddle boards…get exploring offshore and see what you can discover!

*

climb sand dunes because you’ll be treated with amazingness like this.

*

go for a bush walk and see what treasures you find to turn into craft projects when you get home.

*

dance to live music we are so lucky to have free concerts in parks and music festivals all through summer. take the kids, have a dance party and let them soak up those summer vibes.

*

get messy with paint make the most of the summer weather, crank the music up load, let the creativity flow and get messy!

*

invent your own ice-cream flavour or banana nice cream or banana pops as we’ll be doing over here.
