Throw on a pair of Bermuda shorts and crank up the air because DealPass is sizzling with summertime savings. Schools will soon be closing their doors for summer break, which gives families a chance to spend much needed quality time together. Whether it’s a barbecue, a day at the beach or a relaxing getaway, creative ideas and a shopping list will help get the party started. DealPass.com, a one-stop online shopping portal provided by Adaptive Marketing LLC, offers a variety of tools and ideas as well as significant savings for practically everything on your summer’s “most wanted” list.
Worried about summertime spending, but still looking for ideas on how to peel the kids away from the television and video games this summer? Dealpass offers the following suggestions on how to get the entire family off the couch and into the sun without breaking the bank:
-- Go camping. There is something to be said about spending the night underneath a trillion twinkling stars. It’s calm, beautiful and a treat for any young person. So pack up the camping gear and head out into nature -- even if it happens to be in your own backyard.
-- Take a Hike. Give the kids a chance to release all that caged energy they built up during the winter months by going for a walk in the outdoors. Hiking allows for family bonding as well as improving everyone’s physical and mental well-being. In addition, spending time in nature’s classroom provides an opportunity for parents to educate their children on the different species of flowers, trees, insects and animals they might come across.
-- Get to know your state. Most people think they have to travel hundreds of miles to visit exciting places. That’s not necessarily the case. Organize a family outing to areas in your own community or state: the zoo, the state capitol, national parks, or museums. The ride there and back provides an opportunity to talk and reconnect -- the time at your destination provides an opportunity to learn and create memories that will last a lifetime.
-- Show and tell. Take out old family albums and let the children learn about the places you grew up, old hangouts or places you traveled. Visit the city or area where you lived when you were their age and drive past former houses. It will give the youngsters an idea of who you really are and, ultimately, who they are.
