Hi, it's Sarah and Lizzie here. Like us, I bet you love the summer holidays. But being stuck at home every day gets really boring! Here are our top ten ideas for summer activities that won't break the bank.
1. Host a sleepover
Grab your besties and plan a party! Whether it’s a small slumber party or a big pool party, you’re guaranteed to have fun. See our party ideas for some tips.
2. Sun, sand and surf
When you’re feeling a bit down, a dip in the ocean is the best pick-me-up around. Of course, make sure to protect your skin with a hat and sunscreen.
3. Go bushwalking
One healthy activity to try is a bushwalk through a national park. The fresh air and exercise will make your skin glow, while the peace and quiet will leave you feeling totally serene and relaxed. Pack a map, hat, sunscreen and plenty of water, and make sure you’ve told someone where you are going.
4. Get cultured
Art galleries are a great rainy day activity. Look in your local paper for the latest exhibitions. You might even be inspired to create some art of your own!
5. Plan a pool party
Keep cool on long summer days with a pool party. Even a small inflatable pool is fun for a splash. Add water pistols, your best mates and start a water fight!
6. Pamper your besties
Pamper days are heaps of fun! Call all your besties and invite them over with their favourite skin care products and make up. Take turns giving each other facials and trying out new make up looks. You’ll feel like a Hollywood star!
7. Rock on at a music festival
Summer is prime time for big music festivals. Whether dance, pop or rock is your scene you’re sure to have a great day. Remember to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.
8. Hit the summer sales
Boxing Day means one thing – shopping! We love scoring bargains at our favourite stores. Make a list of what you want before you go so you don’t overspend.
9. Catch a flick at the movies
it’s scorching outside, keep cool in a dark cinema. All the big movies come out in summer, and it’s heaps of fun to go in a big group. See if you can take up a whole row!
10. Make a scrapbook
Scrapbooking is all the rage at the moment. To make sure your memories last forever, take heaps of photos over summer and put them into a special scrapbook. Get your friends to add messages and drawings. It will be an amazing keepsake.
