8. Have a water day
Even older kids enjoy being silly with water, and it’s fun to watch your tweens and teens act little again! The more activities, the better. Fill a bunch of balloons with water, and stage a balloon fight. Spray a tarp with water and create your own slip-and-slide. Play dodge ball with water balloons. Play tag with water guns.
Or just turn on the hose and let the kids make up their own fun. It’s even better if the adults get in on the action!
