Members of our Fresh Air family always tell us how much they enjoy sending time together in the outdoors. If you need inspiration for outdoor activities you can enjoy with family and friends – check out these five fun family outdoor activities!  

EXPLORING YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY GARDEN OR FARM 

At The Fund’s Sharpe Reservation, the garden is always a family favorite to visit because of the exciting educational activities. Did you know that you can find a community garden near you? There you can sign up for cultural culinary classes, learn about the importance of composting or even dive into the world of bugs!

ENJOY A LOCAL PARK 

Not up for a hike, a day at the park can be just as fun! There’s so much your family can do at a local park – enjoy a picnic, fly a kite, go for a walk or a run together or even try bird watching!

GET ACTIVE TOGETHER – PLAY A FAVORITE OR NEW SPORT  

Soccer, football or frisbee – a simple but fun outdoor activity is playing sports together.  

Families can compete against each other or connect by playing together on a team. Playing sports promotes teamwork and strong bonding experiences whether it’s scoring a goal for the first time or just throwing a football around.

READ A BOOK OUTDOORS 

We believe that books are more fun with some sunshine and fresh air. One of the best activities to relax outdoors is by simply reading a favorite book! Being outside in a quiet space can help you focus and be more engaged with the book.
