Badgers Get Vitamin D
The sun is now out and the weather is getting warmer. This means outdoor activities are an option. Here is a list of the top 5 activities to try with friends. The first activity is pickleball. Want to pick up a new sport but don't know what to do? Try pickleball. Like tennis, pickleball can be played with two or four people. Head to Ephraim sports park or the Activity Center and grab some friends to play with. The second activity Badgers can try is picnics. Picnics can be done with any kind of food, as long as it doesn't need to stay cold. Use a blanket, grab a few games or a laptop, and head outside in any grassy area.
The third popular choice is Hammocking. Hammocking can be relaxing when it’s warm out. Badger Anthony Knowles says, “Hammocking is super fun! I like that I can lay in the sunlight with my friends.” Don't have a hammock? Ask a friend or head to Walmart and for only twenty dollars try out hammocking. Find two trees that you can wrap the hammock straps around and it’s good to go.
Painting can be done with Bob Ross videos or a landscape that is often enjoyed around Ephraim. Any type of paint works, whether that’s Crayola watercolors or acrylic paints. It can be a relaxing way to spend an afternoon or students can make it a date. It can even be done any time of day. Stargazing is a fun way to find new constellations or talk to friends while looking at the stars. Ephraim’s parks provide a nice place to lay and watch in peace. However students decide to spend time in the sun, make sure to wear sunscreen.
