If you’d like to make this summer as fun as possible for you and your kids, then maybe you should plan some fun activities. In fact, you could make pretty necklaces or fly a kite together. Here are a few other activities for you and your kids to try for some family-time fun this summer.
To make reading a great fit for summer, you can choose a summer-related book. For example, Llama Llama Loves Camping, The Snail and the Whale, and Goldfish on Vacation are three ideas.
Moreover, you can read a book about childrens’ riddles or jokes aloud to your children to add humor to everyone’s day. In addition, reading is a lot healthier than playing video games, watching TV, or browsing social media for hours.
Not only does art help kids and adults develop an imagination, but it can also be tons of fun to get creative! Hand out some paintbrushes, pencils, or crayons and tape paper to the wall to encourage kids to get involved in an art project. You can use clay to create items for summer, such as an adorable whale, beach ball, or vase for fresh-picked flowers.
Other artistic activities include making musical instruments, painting rocks, and sketching in a diary, among others. When everyone’s done creating, hang this beautiful artwork on the fridge or on the wall in a nice frame.
Whether it starts raining outdoors or it’s late in the day, doing a jigsaw puzzle can be a great way to pass the time. From panda bears reading books to family beach scenes, there are plenty of cool puzzles to choose from! You can put a simple one together in one night or do a more complicated one over several days. Furthermore, putting together a puzzle can be a smart way to calm your kids’ minds before bedtime.
Swimming can give everyone an opportunity to get some exercise in an amusing way. You can even bring a colorful swimming tube or two to relax in the water. If you’re in an appropriate area, you can even try family sailing.
Bring enough delicious, healthy foods for a picnic, get a tan in the sunshine, or swim laps in the sparkling water. Remember to slather sunscreen on everyone to avoid damage from the sun’s harsh rays. Getting sunburnt is definitely not fun.
Since making a birdfeeder can be easy and affordable, this can be a fun activity for young kids. Kids can create birdfeeders from cheap items like paper plates, cardboard, and pinecones. After it’s done, your kids can hang it on a tree and watch various birds eat from it.
If your children have a Lego collection, then summer can be the perfect time to bring it out! To start, try building a sandcastle, fish, or pineapple. Encourage your kids to use their imagination to build something creative and unique.
There are plenty of Lego sets for almost anyone, no matter what your age may be, to enjoy. Your imagination is the only thing that limits you from building almost anything.
You can either play cards or a board game. Classic card games your kids will likely love are Snap, Old Maid, Memory, Slapjack, and many others. And classic board games for family night are Candy Land, Twister, Operation, Hungry Hungry Hippos, and more. If you’d rather go outside, consider giant Jenga, ring toss, or horseshoes, among others.
Although nature is filled with bright colors, using your imagination to brighten it up a bit can be fun. Just encourage your kids to pick out various colors of sidewalk chalk to get as creative as possible.
Make a colorful heart or use a stencil to make an inspiring message come to life. No matter what, you almost can’t go wrong with sidewalk chalk since rainbow colors have the power to make almost everything better, at least through the eyes of a child.
Instead of using technology, you can enhance your kids’ quality of life by doing something that stimulates the brain or inspires imagination. As well as this, it’s important to remember that you deserve to have fun, too. Indeed, this means you should plan family-friendly activities that you and your children can enjoy together.
