Summer is finally here! There are so many fun family friendly things to do in the Treasure Valley that it’s hard to decide which is the best one for you. Well, you’re in luck! We have sorted through the abundance of activities and selected a few of the very best ones for you to try by yourself or with your family this summer. Also, you can give yourself even more free time by hiring us to professionally clean your home’s windows and gutters. Did you know that the start of summer is an excellent time to have your gutters cleaned? It helps your house get ready for the deluge of leaves and debris in the fall. Now that you have some more free time on your hands, let’s explore some fun activities to try this summer in the Treasure Valley.
Cooking With The Family
Cooking is one of the best hobbies out there, even in this highly tech-obsessed day and age. It is something that you can introduce to a child at an early age and something that can be enjoyed and practiced at any age. Can’t say the same for bull riding or sky diving as hobbies! Although cooking provides a little less of a rush than those other riskier hobbies, it can be a skill that can help your child become more creative, explore different cultures, and build lifelong friendships. It’s also just a fun way to enjoy spending time together as a family this or any summer!
So, where do we start? We recommend checking out Sur La Table at The Village in Meridian. They offer a wide variety of family friendly cooking classes just about every week this summer! Check out their amazing online calendar that is absolutely jam packed with classes for everyone to enjoy. They have everything from “Date Night” specials to “Kids Can Cook,” and they even have a class dedicated to making the perfect donut!
We also recommend the Idaho Nutrition Associates cooking classes which offer a variety of healthy recipes and techniques for adults and kids. Check out their website and summer event calendar here.
Want to try something completely different? The Boise Co-Op is offering a great assortment of painting classes all summer long! Painting can be a great way to express yourself as well as learn a new skill. You can even sign up to paint a portrait of your pet!
Get Some Exercise Together… With a Purpose!
Working out is generally seen as a chore, even though it is very good for you and helps you stay healthy and in shape. But, you can turn that “chore” into something good for the community and have fun while you’re at it! That’s right, you can get a good bit of exercise and do some good while volunteering to clean up the Greenbelt. It’s a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy that helps you feel good about yourself afterwards. Learn more about volunteer opportunities and adopting the Greenbelt here.
We hope that you have a great time doing some of these fun and unique activities together this summer. If you want to free up some time to do even more, then give us a call and we can help you clean your windows and gutters and even install those beautiful new blinds you’ve been dreaming of. Contact us today, you’ll be glad you did!
