Campfires are perfect for telling stories.
Have a campfire
At the cottage, we have a pit near the shore surrounded by five tree stumps that we can sit on. This is where we have our fires.
Campfires are perfect sites for telling stories and eating s'mores.
S'mores are made of two graham crackers with chocolate and a roasted marshmallow inside. Most parks have fire pits where people can make their own campfires.
At nighttime, it is also fun to grab a blanket, lay it on the grass, then lie down and watch the stars. I remember one stargazing night in particular.
I was in third grade, and there was a meteor shower. This is an annual event when the earth moves through a cloud of dust and ice orbiting the sun. I was with my mom and my sister, and we saw eight shooting stars.
It was amazing!
If you have time, try to learn about constellations. That way, when you look at the stars, you can try to find the constellations that you read about and show them to your friends and family.
Go to rural areas—away from city lights—and enjoy the night sky on a clear summer night.
Fun with family
This sunset is free!
The time you spend with your family is very special and something you will always remember. I spend a lot of time with my family in summer.
My favorite times are when we have picnics for someone's birthday or on special occasions like Fourth of July. It's fun, because we are all together.
Usually, during picnics, the kids play board games, cards, or have a bonfire while the grown-ups talk.
Vacations are more fun if you use your imagination.
Vacation activities don't have to be expensive. They are more fun if you use your imagination.
Besides the fun activities I've suggested, try making a scrapbook or photo journal, playing an old board game, or visiting nearby towns.
You can even vacation at home by organizing a backyard baseball game or poking around grandma's attic with her.
It's important to find an activity that's perfect for you, so be creative!
