Some Summertime Suggestions


                  



Summer is well and truly on its way and the hotter weather is starting to arrive for the majority of us. This means that, as parents, we need to start thinking about one thing: how to entertain the kids. When the warmer weather comes, it’s like they’re completely different people to the ones that you’ve been nurturing all winter. You’ll see them housing more energy, more buzz to do things and with a kick of fun that is quite infectious when you get involved. For those who are stuck on ideas of what to do in the coming months, stay tuned…

Buy Garden Games

You don’t need a large garden to be able to buy garden games for the kids to play with. There are traditional board games that have been oversized and are waterproof for you to be able to play with them outdoors. Connect 4, Jenga and Kerplunk are just a few examples of what’s on offer for you to buy - you can usually find them online for a lot cheaper than you would expect to pay in a garden centre. There are also the good old classic garden games like soccer and croquet to invest in if you fancy keeping it a bit more active.

Keep Them Calm

There will always be children who don’t want to engage in physical activities, or ones who need calming down after running around for a while outside. Keep them calm by having an alternative to the fun outside. Download ShowBox now for a quick and easy platform for them to watch movies on their tablets, or stock up on a good selection of DVDs to keep by the television.

Start Crafting

Moving everything outside means that you have more chance to craft with less chance of messing up your house. It can be a great excuse for getting out the paints! Especially with warmer weather coming, crafts like tie-dye are excellent to take advantage of, as you will be able to stay outside to do the messy bit and then dry the clothes without having to wait absolutely ages for it.

Bring Out Water Fun

Warmer weather calls for water - it just goes hand in hand, doesn’t it? You don’t even need a hose to be able to have fun with water, as buckets, sponges and water bombs work just as well. Make sure that you stock up on them before the season starts, else you’ll be disappointed when you go to the store and they’ve all been bought out.

Make a Den

Making a den in the garden doesn’t just serve as an exciting way to pass the time, but it also offers shelter from the sun to your children when it’s getting just that little bit too warm outside. Kids are more likely to go and sit under something that they have made themselves, and it’s a great way to explore their imaginative and creativity skills. Use props from around the house and incorporate plants and trees in the garden into their design.
