Are you looking for a way to occupy your teenagers for the day? This is a great activity for teens, preteens, girls and boys alike! This would be perfect in the eyes of a teenager because it moves action-to- action which is a great way to keep them busy and off of their phones! With the weather being so perfect in the state of Arizona, amongst many others nationwide, you need to embrace the beauty that surrounds you. Start off your day with an early outdoor adventure. This may include hopping on a bike and riding the trails on South Mountain or renting ATVs from Arizona Outdoor Fun and exploring the terrain. Whatever you do, get your blood pumping! Make sure to pack plenty of water! It took me five years in the Arizona desert to realize that I need to drink even when I am not thirsty.
From your outdoor adventure, you can head on home for the part that the teens will enjoy the most- they can have friends over! Here is where the party planner in me takes over! Be the hostest with the mostest and put together a sports-themed get together for your teen and their friends. If you set up activities to keep them busy like ping pong, pool, swimming, basketball, volleyball, air hockey or similar games, the kids will be up and moving the whole time. As far as food, shape the goodies around sports themed items. You can serve “Dodger Dogs” mimicking the infamous LA Dodger hot dogs, guacamole dip that looks like a football field, baseball and basketball shaped cookies, plus easy to eat items that you can put a sports-themed spin on. Decorations will be easy! Hang up a few do-it-yourself banners and stick to primary colors.
After a day like this, you will be the #1 Mom or Dad in the scorebooks!
Arizona Outdoor Fun has ATV rentals if you are in Arizona.
