July is a great time to get outside! Long Island has a host of outdoor amenities at our fingertips; we would be doing ourselves a disservice not to explore them.

 

Have you seen our newsletter? We gave away a bike bingo template. Cut your items off the bottom, arrange your board and take a tour around the neighborhood.

 

There are great kayaking and paddle boarding rental locations in the area. Our favorite is down by Browns River Road. Visit Captain Kayak right in Sayville and take a water tour of the bay or inlet areas. http://www.captainkayak.com/

 

Want to stay in the yard? Fill up water guns from the dollar store with watercolors and spray at a canvas across the yard. If you do this, we’d love to see your art!

 

Another great dollar store find is the variety of glow sticks! Pick up a few pack of necklace size glow sticks and 6 short sticks in 2 different colors to play glow stick tic-tac-toe!

 

As always, use caution when you’re outside with proper sunscreen and insect repellant. Visit our Facebook page for links on non-toxic solutions.
