1. At-Home Ice Cream Social
Who doesn’t love ice cream on a warm day?! A fun activity to celebrate everyone’s love of ice cream is to create your own ice cream social complete with a sundae bar. Whether it’s a healthy option like Noyo Froyo from Real Good or Jeni’s decadent flavors, the sky's the limit with the toppings and flavors you get to choose. Don’t forget the cherry on top!
2. Fancy Lemonade + Drink Stand
We think it will be a blast for adults and kiddos alike to host a lemonade stand with a spin on it. There are so many fun recipes to try before the flavors of the season are gone.
3. Outdoor Movie Night
If you have a projector, then you have a movie theatre! Whether it’s in a park or in your own yard, we can’t think of a more perfect way to end the summer than an outdoor movie night. There are many options for all budgets available on amazon. You’ll be able to bring the magic from the big screen to your home and your loved ones will never forget it. Complete the evening with homemade popcorn and a candy bar!
4. Support Your Community
GG loves supporting local businesses and neighborhoods. We are especially excited to promote local events where proceeds go directly back into our communities. This weekend, check out Roscoe Village Burger Fest. It will be filled with family-friendly fun (and good food) with a $10 donation in lieu of an entry fee. You can find out more information about this event and others happenings during LDW here.
See you later, Summer!
The end of summer tends to be bittersweet, however, we hope these activities help you squeeze in the last weeks of warmth before we start transitioning into our beloved Chicago Fall!
