As summer approaches, the question regarding fun activities to have with children arises. Play time is very important for kids as it helps them develop their mental and physical skills. Therefore, it is not enough to simply keep them occupied, but to, in some sense, ‘force’ them to actively interact with toys and be fully involved in a game. Here are few ways you can entertain your kids and make their summer educational and even more interesting.
Discover the explorer in your kid
Surprise your kid with an old cell phone or camera that you do not use but is still in a good condition. Take pictures together of anything and let your kid explore the world around. What you may find boring, your kid may see it is an interesting thing. You will be surprised by your child’s attention to details and just how good and beautiful pictures he/she can take.
Make a memorable party
Invite all your kid’s friends to the biggest summer party in your home. Prepare sandwiches, fresh juice, sweet cupcakes and lots of snacks. Think of interesting games to play such as puppet show, music concert, etc. If you have kids pool, make it a pool party. Buy water play toys and notify parents in advance and tell them to include childrens swimwear, beach towels and sunscreen lotions in kids’ backpacks. You can arrange such play dates on a monthly or weekly basis with other parents.
Kids love to draw and paint. Use your afternoons to spend time in the backyard drawing with your kids. This will help your child express own feelings and boost his/her creativity.
If your child is old enough, send him/her to Summer Camp. This is an ideal way for your child to meet new kids, develop new friendships and improve communication, social, emotional, and problem-solving skills.
Use backyard as a playroom
Spending time in nature is very important, so instead of spending time in front of a TV or laptop watching cartoons, spend quality play time outside in your own backyard. Transform the backyard into an outdoor playroom with your child’s favorite toys. There are many interesting games you can play that are more fun than watching TV such as tag, hide and seek, hopscotch, jump rope, telephone, etc. If you have a pool, ‘Marco Polo’ game is a perfect summer game. Grab favorite swimwear for kids, few towels, water goggles, sunscreen lotion and let the fun begin.
When going on a vacation, do not forget the inflatable pool. Regardless of whether you plan to spend time on the beach, lake, river, inflatable pool is perfect for some extra fun. All you need are beach ball, water bottles, food, favorite childrens swimwear, water play toys and you’re ready for some serious fun.
The summer is around the corner so arm yourself with inevitable outdoor toys and super cute swimwear kids designs. There are many retailers who offer last season’s kids swimwear on sale that your little ones will love. Of course, aside from being able to shop super discount deals on childrens swimwear online, you’ll surely find sunscreen lotions, beach towels, water play toys, etc. on sale as well.
