15 Outdoor Activities During Covid-19

Summer is coming quick and many of are getting cabin fever from Stay at Home orders. Try out these ideas to get outside.

Take a hike
Hiking is still encouraged, but be mindful about where you go. Try to avoid the busiest parks and trails, and if a parking lot is full, go to your plan B. #GetOutSpreadOut

Backyard camping
With a boost of Spring warmth, overnight temperatures have remained above freezing. Make some s’mores and enjoy the great outdoors at home.

Tend the garden
Begin that Spring tune up, with fresh mulch, fertilizer and watering.

Sidewalk chalk
Fun for the kids AND adults. Use chalk to make art or send positives messages. Chalk up a game of four-square or hopscotch.

Try a new workout
Outdoor yoga. Outdoor Zumba. Outdoor kickboxing. Running! The possibilities are endless.

Neighborhood scavenger hunt
Create a list of exciting things to find in your neighborhood. Try these for a start: yellow house, bird, squirrel, a blue spruce tree, an aspen tree, etc.

Play a lawn game
Bocce ball, cornhole, horseshoe, croquet, to name a few.

Read or study on the patio
The warmth of the sun or a subtle breeze can help your mind focus!

Work outside
You know what would make that daily Zoom meeting even better? Sitting outside.

Enjoy your meals al fresco
Either make your meal at home or order take out. Set up a nice dinner on your patio. Make it picnic style if you’d like! Don’t forget about all the local restaurants who would love to serve you take out. #TakeoutTuesday

Complete your outdoor to-do list items
Clean your windows, fix the garden bed. Do you know how satisfying it can be to power wash concrete?

Look at the stars
Drive into the country or out of the city and find the North Star on a clear night.

Ride your bike
Whether you are dusting if off from the depths of the garage, or just finished your daily cruise, take your bike out for a ride.

Paint outdoors
Find a spot that is peaceful, and paint what you see.

Dance under the stars
Grab a bluetooth speaker and just go chill, maybe dance under the stars.

Whatever you do just stay safe and sane. Reach out to your family and friends and let them know they are loved.
