We’re all itching to get out of the house, especially recently. So how do you do that safely? If you’re looking for ways to better utilize your car this summer, continue reading and learn about some fun and creative car activities to try this season.

Creative Ways to Enjoy Your Car This Summer

Go car camping

Cars are getting more and more advanced with features that can make them homes away from home. Reclining or collapsible seats create a comfortable place to sleep. Ample cargo space allows you to take whatever you’d like to bring along for the adventure. A panoramic roof even allows you to sleep directly under the stars. If necessary, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity can help you stay connected, even as you travel. 

If you want to spend a weekend outdoors but don’t want to bother with setting up a tent or towing a camper, your car may offer everything you need to enjoy a few days off grid. Pack a couple of sleeping bags, throw a cooler and a camp stove in the back, and you’re ready to go. 

Wash your car

When it’s too hot outside to enjoy the day without access to water, consider having a family car wash. The kids can learn how to safely and effectively wash the car while you reap the benefit of a freshly-cleaned car. 

All you need for this activity is a hose, a few buckets, a mild cleaner, and a sponge or wool mitt. Be sure to use cleaning materials that are safe for the surface of your car. 

Find a drive-in movie theater

You may have to do a little digging, but chances are, you could be living within driving distance of a drive-in movie theater.

A drive-in offers the perfect way to watch movies with young kids. They can laugh, react, and talk freely while you enjoy the movie free from the stress that they might disrupt other viewers around them. Don’t forget to pack popcorn, movie snacks, and drinks. Your kids will enjoy experiencing a taste of your own childhood.
