Looking for nature-themed activities to do right in your own backyard? These five activities are perfect to do while exploring the world right outside your door.
The water-themed activities are part of our At-Home Summer Camp. There are five main activities so you can do one activity a day. One of the best parts about summer is all of the water play. Since we live in the south, we depend on water play to help outdoor play doable in the summer. We love swimming at the beach and pool and we also love adding in some extra fun water-themed activities!

The purpose of the At-Home Summer Camp series is to provide moms with some simple and fun themed activities for summer. Instead of trying to do all of the things every single day, I have found it to be helpful and freeing to do one fun activity a day. Some weeks we may do all five activities and other weeks just one, but having a list of activities on hand has helped us thrive during the summer.
