Fun Activity Ideas To Do This Summer

* This is a collaborative post

The summer is just around the corner, and that means that all those long hard hours will have paid off because now you've set your days aside for a well earned holiday. Now a holiday doesn't necessarily mean going away somewhere abroad though, it might just be some quality time that you can spend with your family. What you do really depends on what you all like, while some of you may enjoy the great outdoors, the rest might prefer to watch endless amounts of movies or play video games. So it's important that you cater to everyone's wants so you all have a fantastic summer holiday.

Here are some of the best activities to do this summer.

Amusement park
If you and the kids enjoy the excitement of all the different kinds of rides that amusement parks have to offer, then consider making a whole day of it screaming with both fear and exhilaration. The cool thing about these is that there is so much variation, so if you don't feel like you want to participate in going on the ridiculously big scary looking rollercoaster - you don't have to. There's something for everyone, especially for the younger kids too. The best way to experience a day out like this is to take a big group of people, that way you will all get a chance to go on what you want without worrying about leaving anyone else out.

If you have a competitive streak and love the way that spurge of adrenaline makes you feel, then why not have a go at some paintballing with the family? Now, if you have extremely young children, then this won't be suitable for them, but as long as your kids are over ten, everyone can get involved. You can find all the information you need on sites like who explain the rules and give you the information you need to find a session close to you. Essentially, the aim of the game is to fire at your opposing team until they all get hit, but it can be made more complex by getting hold of the flag and transporting it onto your grounds. (Or whatever you're fighting for.)

These are so simple, and yet they never get old. What better way to spend a warm sunny day than preparing a picnic and going to a pretty park? If you have a lake that allows fishing - even better. You could bask in the sun while trying to catch a fish, and if ever you do, you can cook it on the barbecue. But of course, bring some backup plans just in case you don't get lucky. You could even turn this into a whole social gathering by inviting your favourite family and friends to come and join you. Bring a cool box for refreshments - you can find some ideas on, as well as some yummy snacks, and even a guitar or two if you like to get a little musical. And don't forget the marshmallows for when the sun starts to go down.
