Parks and warm weather go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s the only way to explain the hordes of people flocking to every green space in the city on the weekends.
With a blanket and some snacks in tow, there’s nothing like meeting some friends and spending the day soaking in the sun.
Here’s how you can take your park lounging game to the next level.
Bring healthy snacks
Your body will thank you the next day if you’re snacking on fruits and veggies instead of chips. While it might seem like the easier option to just grab some Fritos and sour cherry blasters, it’s actually the same amount of effort to go with the clean eating option. Instead of candy, make a fruit salad. Instead of chips, grab some carrots and celery with dip.
Grab that Frisbee
Instead of lounging about all day, why not infuse some action into your park day with a little bit of Frisbee? Or any ball-related sport, for that matter. It won’t cost you much bag space and your friends will thank you for bringing the fun.
Don’t forget the Cards Against Humanity
Sure, it’s no revelation, but don’t underestimate the value of this age-old pastime. Cards can bring a bit of fun into an otherwise long and lazy afternoon. If you’re looking for a bit more excitement, spice things up with Cards Against Humanity or Uno.
Get your hands on some speakers
Grab your portable speakers and set up a chill jam session as you’re lying on the grass, looking up at the sky. Music will turn any casual day into a tune-filled adventure. And who knows, maybe you’ll make some friends who share your love for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
