The summer holidays are upon us and with weeks of kid’s activities and entertainment to organise, it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. Here are a few tips to help you out no matter what your budget is and no matter what the weather is like.
Build A Den
Inside: With the supervision of a parent or guardian, kids could use pillows, bed sheets and a few chairs to build their very own den.
Outside: Again with supervision from a parent or guardian, children can use old or hard wearing bed sheets and (if you have one) a washing line to drape the sheet over.
Kids will love having a den in the garden or in the living room, as they can escape reality and enjoy a good book or come night time, a spooky ghost story.
Teddy Bears Picnic
Inside/Outside: A few sandwiches, some carrot sticks, a yoghurt, an apple and a nice cool drink all laid out on a blanket makes the perfect setting for a teddy bears picnic.
The guests of honour will of course be your child’s teddy bear(s) and they will need a plate setting out just like everyone else. Taking a meal away from the usual setting of the dining table can really stir your child’s imagination, and who knows this might be your chance to introduce (or re-introduce) healthy snacks to their diet.
Inside/Outside: Create a map which will lead your children to hidden treasure (individually wrapped sweets) that has been stashed away in your home or garden, but only after they have solved your riddles and followed your clues.
Kids will love the adventure and you can even have some fun with the map, add in some clues that are educational to get their brains into gear even though they are not in school.
From everyone here at Remarkable Holidays, we hope you have a fantastic summer!
