Summer holidays are coming up which means that you have to find ways to keep your kid pre-occupied. This can be fun and less stressful on you if it’s done right. Going to the beach or park would be a great activity but doing it every day won’t be fun and trips aren’t really an option if you are on a budget. On the good side, you can organize activities right in your backyard, this is inexpensive and you don’t really have to travel out.
This is an old favorite classic from the 90s. This game can go on for a while, and it is extremely fun. You can even go ahead and modify this game, instead of including numbers, prompt them to do something, like roar like a lion, touch the tree, sing the alphabet etc. You know what I mean.
If you have more than one child, you can turn gardening into a competition, teach them how to garden and assign each one of them with a list of garden chores, and make it look like a game and award the winner with something good. This is basically a win-win situation, they get to have fun and you still end up getting some work done. But be careful, make sure they wear suitable clothing, appropriate footwear and are sprayed with repellants.
Something they can jump on
Children love jumping up and down on a bed, this is fun but can damage the bed and they can end up getting injured if they bounce off the bed, so to keep things safe, you can get a jumping castle hire. You can also talk with the other parents and share the castle with the rest of the kids.
The great inflatable castle can be used to play games, instead of just allowing the kids to jump on it. You can introduce games such as dance and freeze, this is the same as dancing statues where they have to be still when the music stops but this is going to be much harder as the children would struggle to stay still on the bouncy castle.
This can never get old, you can either buy one or look up online and make your own bubble mixture for your kids. This alone would suffice for most children.You can mix and match some of these activities together throughout the holidays to keep your children occupied, but don’t leave your children unattended, have someone to supervise your children at all times.
