Having Fun from Home this Summer Posted On 28 July 2021

As we approach another British Summer, attention will inevitably turn to occupying the kids throughout the school holidays

 

We know how hard it can be to continue to entertain them, so take a look at our list of recommended activities to get them excited, without having to leave your home.

 

Get Creative

If the kids are in the mood to flex their creative muscles, then indulge them with some DIY arts and crafts. But if you’re worried about gathering necessary equipment, think again, because there are so many great ways to get messy with items around the house. For example, you can create your own monsters out of discarded tissue boxes. Or if your youngsters are budding scientists, then have a look at how you can, with only a few ingredients, create your own mini volcanoes, or a DIY Fireworks display in a glass!

 

Go Hunting for Treasure

No matter the age of your child, or the dimensions of your home, a treasure hunt is always a firm favourite. And these can be done in different ways. You can hide a variety of everyday items around the house and garden, and task your kids with locating them. Or, if you want to add another dimension, then turn this into a scavenger hunt, and provide clues. As well as ensuring that the kids’ imaginations are kept active, it’s a great activity to last all day, and it gives your children a sense of achievement as they complete it.

 

Utilise your Garden

Given how pleasant British Summers can be, then why not take advantage, and spend some quality time in your garden. Start with a picnic. Throw the blanket down, grab your favourite snacks, and embrace the warmth. And when it gets dark, get the tent out, and go on a mini-camping break! This doesn’t just bring the family together, but allows you to recreate a real camping trip, from the comfort of your own home. So don’t forget the smores!

 

Teach a Culinary Course

The long summer days provide ample time to do whatever you please. So why not get the family into the kitchen, and create some family favourites. You will not only end up with some scrumptious snacks, but it will also give your children a key insight into the world of cooking from a young age.
