This year, a family vacation may not be in the budget, so the next best thing is a staycation. A staycation can include exploring parts of the city or state you never thought you would be able to see before. With a little research and planning, your staycation can be just as great as a vacation. Titonka Savings Bank is bringing you staycation ideas for your family this summer.
Staycation vacation ideas:
Backyard camping- Set up a tent and start a campfire in your own backyard. You would be surprised at how much the children will enjoy venturing on a camping trip in the yard. This is also good practice for camping away from home, so you can see how much they enjoy sleeping in a tent under the stars.
Visit the library– The local library is filled with summer activities for all children to enjoy during the summer. From story time to crafts, the library is ideal for escaping the July heat and promoting summer learning for your children.
Head to the pool– Cool off on a hot day by heading to the local public pool. If the pool is out of the question, set up a sprinkler or slip and slide at home. The refreshing water and splashing will keep everyone active during the day.
Afternoon art- Check out sites like Pinterest for a fun summertime craft. When the weather is too hot to be outdoors, an afternoon craft will keep the children entertained for hours. Let their creative side show through crafts at home.
Find local events to enjoy- July brings county fairs, weekend festivals and concerts. There are many community events in the area and surrounding communities to enjoy.
