Family summer activities

It’s summer! The moment for you to spend a little bit of time with your family! We know that we live in a demanding and accelerated world; however, it is always necessary and important to invest time with the ones we love.

There are many types of plans for you make do with your relatives. One good way to have a fun time together is to practice sports. Do you like adrenaline? Going to an adventure park is one of the best ways to enjoy the day with the family. At those parks you can find anything, from rock climbing or zip-lines to different technical obstacles which involve equilibrium or concentration. The best part of these places is that there are different levels so that all the members of the group can have a great time. Moreover, there is no need to be worried about the little ones, since they will be assisted by a monitor in everything they may need.

Another type of activity which is ideal for the family is to go canoeing. This is a way to get some exercise outdoors and get to know beautiful new places. The little ones are usually the ones who enjoy canoeing the most. It is usually pretty easy for them, too, since they can be in the same canoe as an adult and they won’t get tired out. They can be the “navigators.”

The final sport we suggest is going snorkelling. This is a cheap and really entertaining activity to do. You just need a diving mask, a snorkel (the tube you breathe through) and if you want to be really professional, a pair of fins. It may seem like a solitary activity (I mean, who can talk under the water?) but it is great to go snorkelling in pairs so you can point out different fun things to each other-  and develop your non-verbal communication! This is an ideal summer plan, especially if you are going on holidays to a nice rocky beach with lots to see under the water.

Whichever of these activities you choose to do, you’ll be sure to have fun.

Vocabulary:
