Summer is just beginning and we want to help your family enjoy the many memories you will create this summer. From s’mores around the fire to trips to the pool – and lots of sidewalk chalk in between. While you and your little ones are creating your summer bucket list, we thought we’d give you a jump start with some creative and classic summer activities for you to enjoy.


In your own backyard

  • Build a fort out of trees and sticks
  • Play in the sprinkler
  • Draw with sidewalk chalk
  • Water Balloon Fight (hint: Radio Flyer wagons make excellent water balloon carriers)
  • Make a wagon “food truck” and sell cookies and lemonade to the neighborhood 


Travel adventures

  • Take a family trip to a u-pick farm for summer fresh fruits and vegetables
  • “Travel” to your local farmers market or grocery store – who says errands can’t be mini adventures?
  • Go camping! (You can do this in your backyard, too)
  • Take the family to a national park for some sightseeing and outdoor fun
  • Travel somewhere you’ve always wanted to go


Free adventures

  • Take a trip to the library in your little red wagon
  • Head to a park and have a picnic
  • Play kickball
  • Watch a neighborhood baseball game


Indoor Adventures

  • Color a picture
  • Create a pretend indoor “dry creek” with sticks for fishing poles and paper fish. Attach a magnet to each fish and to the end of your fishing line for endless hours of fun!
  • Build a cardboard rocket ship with your wagon as the base!
  • Play indoor hopscotch using pillows and cushions
  • Read a book!
