1. Get outside

It's the first week of summer, and it's also Great Outdoors Month, so make that an excuse to get your kids outside! Go for a hike, to a playground, splash in a creek, or simply play in your own backyard. Get out there and enjoy that summer sunshine. June 1-30

2. Get lunch from a food truck

Celebrate National Food Truck Day by buying a meal or a sweet treat from a local food truck in your town. We love food trucks because they are mostly locally-owned labors of love. June 24

4. Learn about Helen Keller

Helen Keller was born on this day in 1880. Spend an hour or two at the library together researching and learning about this inspiring figure in American history. June 27

5. Find out about our oceans

Kids love learning about the ocean, and this is a great month to do just that because it's National Ocean Month. We love this entertaining and educational BBC Earth documentary above. Better yet, get your kids to a beach, creek or lake and talk to them about what they can do to help take care of our environment, since that's the best way to protect our amazing oceans. June 1-30
