Sofie Sunday ~ 40+ Stuff To Do This Summer!

Oh, summer: the time for vacation, sun, and fun!

(Plays glorious music. La, la la la!!!)

However, not all of us will be heading for the beach. We may mostly be at home doing summer activities. But what summer activity will you do? Well, today’s post will be a list of 40+ things you can do this summer. Get ready to have some fun!

  1. Make a summer journal – a simple notebook will do! You can write down things that happened during the summer on your journal. You can also customize your journal, to make it more special. The journal can remind you of what happened during your sunny summer.
  1. Make a summer scrapbook – similar to the summer journal, except instead of writing you can put lots of photos and stickers inside!
  1. Make a Mandala – mandalas are designs that go round and round, and easy to make. Try making one and hang it on your wall!
  1. Get a definition – write a list of words that you don’t know what their meanings are, and find the meaning on a dictionary. Then rewrite the list, but adding the definitions beside the words.
  1. Make a sandwich – hungry? Time for a snack! (Fun idea: try making a sandwich with a spread that you’ve never tasted. Or, put something unusual inside the sandwich, like hot sauce, sprinkles, chips, etc.)
  1. Become familiar with your books – Take out all the books inside your bookshelf. Then, write down their titles. Arrange the books neatly again.
  1. Take a walk – take a stroll down your neighbourhood in the morning. Enjoy the morning sun and the tweeting of birds!
  1. Learn something that happened – on Google, search for ‘events that happened on (put date here). Example: My birthday is on June 14, so here are some stuff I found out on my birthday:
  • It’s going to be Flag Day!
