FLY A KITE

Probably not something you’ve done since you were a kid! Why not assemble and fly a kite together? If you have a nice day with a steady breeze, flying a kit can actually be a lot of fun! You could each fly one (watch out for tangles) or take turns. And if you already have a kite, this is a free date (unless you wanted to visit an ice cream truck along the way… just sayin)
