7 Summer Night Family Fun Activities

Sponsored and compensated by Energizer®. All opinions expressed within are entirely TMOs.

Summer is in full swing and we’ve been trying our best to add as many family activities as we can during the day. But let me be honest, it’s been so hot in our neck of the woods that some days it’s just ideal to stay indoors with the AC cranked up until sundown. And once the sun goes down, you have about an hour of light to play before it gets really dark outside. And if your kiddos are anything like ours, they definitely need more than just an hour of play. So we came up with some summer outdoor family activities. The best part is that some of these activities are even educational! I know, slightly OCD with educational activities over here.  

But before we dive right on into all the fun activities, I’d like to point out that we can’t get enough of these Energizer® LED headlights. Yes, to you they just might seem like headlights, but these are game changers at night. Our kids love being active outside and night time brings activities to a whole new exciting level. These Energizer headlights absolutely make outdoor entertaining for the whole family such a breeze! They’re also, perfect for camping, late night family barbecues or just about any type of night time outdoor adventure.  

7 Summer Night Family Fun Activities

Headlight Dance Party – What we love about the Energizer® Vision HD + Focus headlights is that aside from having a white spot and flood LED light they also have a red light for night vision. The girls can switch back and forth with colors creating a dance club ambience. We crank up the tunes and our backyard is instantly transformed into a family dance club.

Headlight Sight Words Game – Tape sight word cards onto trees, walls or anything in your backyard or local park. Using your headlights, have everyone search and find all the sight words. First person to find and read them all wins! If you’re kiddos are much younger you can use images instead or have older siblings help out.

Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs – For this activity we used see through plastic eggs with glow in the dark bracelets to create a gem-like effect at night. Place these throughout your backyard or park and have the kids pretend they’re Snow White’s dwarfs looking for gems in a mine. Whoever finds the most gems wins!

Shadow Puppets – Using a wall outside your house, have the kiddos create shadow puppets and put on a show. This activity lets their imaginations take off!  

Stargazing – On a night when the skies are clear, grab a blanket and have the kids lay down and look for stars. This one is surely a no brainer but there’s something extra peaceful about watching stars at night.

Alphabet Letter Hunt – Similar to the above sight word game but instead using the alphabet. First person to find all 27 letters wins!

Headlight tag – This is pretty much the traditional game of tag but with headlights. It brings this game to a whole other level.

Hope you and your family have a blast trying out these night time activities. We sure are! And stop by to find out all about the Energizer® Vision HD + Focus headlights Did you know they’re water resistant and drop tested to stand up to harsh conditions? Perfect for little hands and adult hands too!

  • Having a spa day at home with this little love of mine before we get ready for dinner and bed time. Spa as in her putting on cucumber slices on her eyes and pretending to meditate while I also place cucumber slices but also massage in this amazing @Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque. Because I'm almost 40 (eek!) and need all the help I can get from all the Southern California beach sun exposure.

I absolutely love the way this masque smells! So fresh and it has a light water gel texture to it. But the best part is the convenience factor for us busy moms. I just apply it right after I wash my face and sleep with it overnight. I wash it off in the morning and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated, softer and brighter. You can find this amazing @Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque @UltaBeauty I left you the direct link to purchase on their site via link in my bio.🤗 #IworkwithExuviance #Exuviance

This Neutrogena #Rainbath Ocean Mist shower gel smells divine and reminds me of my 20s when I lived in a tiny cottage in Manhattan Beach, CA. It's a fresh ocean scent all bottled up. Love the way it feels on my skin and it doesn't leave a heavy residue. And if you're a Costco member, you can get this large #NeutrogenaRainbath 40oz bottle @Costco in stores and online at http://bit.ly/NeutrogenaRainbath (link in my bio) #Neutrogena #ad @Neutrogena #Costco

  • #ad Stop your scroll! This one is for all my #mamarazzi friends that also take tons of photos of their kiddos.📸👶🏻🤣

What if I told you that you can now charge your phone AND save your camera phone photos at the same exact time?? This @SanDisk iXpand Base device charged my phone and backed up over 2,000 pictures and videos instantly!! .
.
Unlike the cloud, there are NO recurring monthly fees and you can have the peace of mind knowing that your photos are right by your bedside. But the best part of it all is that it's super fast! Much faster than backing up to a cloud over Wi-Fi. .
The SanDisk iXpand Base is now available at Amazon and perfect to add to your holiday wish list. Just sayin' 😉  #iXpandBase #BackupAndCharge

The truth is, this kid, although little compared to most of her classmates and teammates has such a huge personality, brains and never ending energy. .
.
She’s excelling in school by leaps and bounds. Experienced her 1st soccer championship game at age 6 and is getting a Sr yellow belt.  But don’t get me wrong, she has melt downs, she’s scared to be alone and puts up a good fight with clothes and shoes. Apparently everything is “itchy ivy.” Hence why these @skechers are on repeat even w/ dresses. Two Thumps up for being comfy and making her “faster”. 😆👟🏃‍♀️#ad @skechers #kidsstyle #toontown

Oh @joannagaines, just take all my money, k? Anyone else stock up on some Hearth & Hand at home when it came out last week? Absolutely had to buy this gorgeous table I saw displayed in one of their online @Target ads the second Hearth & Hand went live. Along with all these goodies. Our home entrance definitely needed a little TLC and I'm loving this mix of all my favorite things. It now feels cozy and welcoming. Are you a #joannagaines fan too? 😊🌿 #HearthandHand #fixerupper #bossmom #motheroverloadhome
  • When you have 💯 things to do but it’s a gorgeous day out & the kiddos keep asking over and over if we can go to the safari park. Mama absolutely gave in. 🤣
