For many people, the end of May marks the beginning of summer. School is coming to an end, the weather is warming up, and Memorial Day hosts the first barbeques, pool parties, and picnics. With the world slowly opening up to new possibilities, here are a few virtual and in-person ideas to celebrate the warm weather while following the policies in your area.
Talent Show — Invite everyone to come up with a small, two minute presentation on something they’ve been working on during quarantine. It could be playing an instrument, telling jokes, or displaying arts and crafts. You could even assign a host to give funny introductions for each participant.
Book Club — Set up a time to meet each month over Zoom and discuss a book. Many libraries offer book club bundles with discussion questions included to make meetings simple and engaging.
Scavenger Hunt — Make a list of things for everyone to try to find in their neighborhood. Have them take pictures and videos along the way to share their fun adventures!
Sporting Event — Whether you go to a professional game or simply pick a high school team to support, this is a great way to get outside and enjoy the warm weather.
Ice Cream Social — Set up an ice cream bar in your backyard and allow people to grab a bowl and stay to chat as long as they’d like. People can still social distance if necessary while enjoying the ice cream and company.
Block Party — Once things open up, you can get other families in the neighborhood to pitch in for a big event. You could have lawn games, face painting, a food truck, maybe even a dunk tank!
