Summer makes family time easy. With no winter clothes to struggle with you can be out of the house in minutes. Family play will help you bond, get siblings cooperating and create stories to share and laugh about over dinner. When you’re back for a break you want snacks that are quick and easy to eat, like pre-cut veggies, fresh fruit and individual yogurts. Backyard sports: Even a small yard or a narrow driveway can have a basketball net, room to kick the soccer ball around (designate goal posts with paint cans) or a net set-up for badminton and volleyball.
