May is National Family Month and National Bike Month.

It made us start thinking: what are some great activities for a family to do together, especially with the weather (fingers crossed) warming up from this unusually cold spring. Here’s a great article from Parenting Magazine.

 20 Activities To Do With Your Family

Make the most of your upcoming weekend, and plan for one (or more!) of these fun outdoor activities!

Enjoy Watermelon With Your Kids in Your Local Park.

Rock On

Secure your picnic tablecloth with these colorful weights. To make, wash and dry rocks and cover each with a coat of decoupage glue, like Mod Podge. Before the glue dries, decorate the rocks using colored or patterned papers cut in a variety of shapes. To finish, paint a second coat of glue over the rock and let dry.

Take your children to meet the local firefighters.

Visit a Fire Station

Most local stations will arrange tours for kids. This is an exciting field trip for preschoolers (especially those who love playing with toy trucks) and school-age children alike. They’ll love checking out the different fire trucks and meeting real live firefighters.

Collect leaves outside with your children.

Collect Leaves

Children old enough to handle a crayon can make angel faces. Lay a leaf on paper and rub outward with side of crayon, creating a silhouette and making different halo and hairdo effects. Remove the leaf and draw in a chin, a face, and an outline for the hair.
