This post The Best Lazy Days Of Summer Activities was sponsored by Wendy’s as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
I’ve come to the conclusion that there are two types of families: Those who schedule their weekends down to the minute, months in advance, and those who prefer the “fly by the seat of their pants” method and often choose their weekend adventure on Saturday morning.
While I prefer to plan each weekend as it comes, my son craves structure and usually bolts out of bed at 6 a.m. on a Sunday morning, imploring me to rattle off a list of the day’s events. And he was the inspiration for this post The Best Lazy Days Of Summer Activities.
So to that end, I’m sharing The Best Lazy Days Of Summer Activities that will both eliminate the “Mom I’m bored” syndrome, as well give your kids a bit of the structure and routine they crave during the long, hot lazy days of summer.
#1 Make a Lunch Date at Wendy’s to sample their Berry Burst Chicken Salad and win YANKEES tickets
Summer is back and so is all the flavor of the Wendy’s Berry Burst Chicken Salad! Packed with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and feta cheese, almonds, and topped with raspberry vinaigrette – it’s bursting with all of the best flavors of summer.
And I love the fact that as a vegetarian Wendys is the place I can go and get a salad minus the chicken (and they are so lovely and accommodating about it!) Their berry burst is the ultimate fresh-made, flavorful meal to fit even the busiest summer schedules.
A Wendy’s salad is the best way to get your kid to eat his veggies- especially if he know he gets to wash it down with a Dave’s Craft Lemonade! But just like those summer tan lines, it will only be around for a limited time!!
The best part is that enjoying your favorite Wendy’s foods like their fresh salads and Dave’s Craft Lemonade is easier than ever thanks to DoorDash functionality within the Wendy’s app!
While you are there enjoying your Salad and lemonade, pull out a notepad and play an old-fashioned game of tic-tac-toe and hangman!
And this summer you can also take part in the Yankees Ticket Sweepstakes!

Hanging out for an afternoon will undoubtedly leave you and your child with a newfound love for a hobby that can last a lifetime. Or you can go to their website to get ideas for creating your own masterpieces like this UNICORN!
#3 GO BOWLING
Forget the smoke-filled, dark bowling alleys of the past; these days bowling alleys are the polar opposite with its brightly painted walls, computer scoring, no-smoking policy and child-sized 6-pound bowling balls and size 6 shoes.
Bowling is a sport where parents can participate, too. And you usually don’t need to leave the alley for a bite; they’ve got a concession with kid favorites like: pizza, salads and wraps.
#4 START KNITTING!
What kids will go gaga for This is a non-pressure hobby; there’s no race to finish line and every project is created out of love. Learning to knit, purl, cast on and cast off and create something!
Parent perks—It’s amazing to witness and be a part of what their kids can accomplish
and see the smiles on their faces once they’ve completed a knitting project. An opportunity to share their ideas, inspiration and projects in process and the chance to learn a new crafting activity they can share for years to come.
