https://www.verywellfamily.com/summer-fun-ideas-kids-and-parents-3542627

Build an obstacle course in the backyard. Pretend to be America Ninja Warriors and see how quickly you can each get through the course.

Go fishing. In many states, kids can drop a line in without a license.

Hold a hula-hoop contest. See which family member can hula the longest.

Play miniature golf. Go to a local course or build your own course on the driveway.

Take bike rides for fun. Either leave from your own house or drive to biking trails.

Play balloon tennis. Gather a balloon, paper plates, and painting sticks and you are all set. Attach the sticks to the paper plates to make the paddles and use the balloon as the ball. This is a great activity for indoor or outdoor play.

Run in the yard. Play kickball, Frisbee, tag, and other outdoor games. You could even create your own summer Olympics.
