Summer vacation was one of the best times of my childhood as it was the time of year that I was able to travel around and play with my friends all day long without having to remember school. It is the time of year for all of us to let our inner child out and have fun, even though the heat is unbearable at times.
Staying in during the holidays is a must, but you should also make your children play out as this is a way for them to create lasting memories with their friends that will stay with you for a lifetime. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn about some of the activities you can do with your kids this summer season.
1. Go tree climbing
Tree climbing is one of the most popular activities at this time of year. It will be the opportunity for your children to be Lara Croft or Indiana Jones. Be ready to climb, keep your balance and let yourself be carried by the zip lines. To practice, tree-climbing and treetop adventure parks with your children, know that many sites exist all over the US, and there must be one near your home. You have to find it and book it to spend a relaxing and exciting afternoon with your family.
2. Organize a treasure hunt!
If you have the soul of an adventurer, you can plan a scavenger hunt beyond your backyard. This is probably one of the games that kids love to play, especially during the summer. The objective is to choose the objects you want to spread out on a map, ideally practical and useful gifts, in order to make the children work on their reflexes and memory. Be careful to adapt to the difficulty and the hiding places according to the age of your children. Finally, don’t forget to provide clues to spice up the treasure hunt.
3. Build a treehouse
Your kids have probably already wanted to build a cabin while thinking they were Robinson Crusoe, right? With summer, it’s time to make them happy by building a makeshift cabin together. You will need wooden boards, cardboard, and sheets to build it. The kids will probably want to help set up the cabin in the garden, bedroom, or corner of the house.
4. Fly a kite
If summer vacation takes you to the beach or a vacant lot, you can offer your kids a kite-flying session. To do this, you’ll need a garbage bag, a roll of string, wooden rods, a pair of scissors, and tape. With all of these items at your disposal, you can start building a kite and get your kids to help you. And if you encounter some difficulties during construction, feel free to follow this tutorial to build a kite.
5. Camping in the garden
Who said it was necessary to go to the campsite to pitch the tent? Your children have already told you about it, and with the summer, you just have to take action. The principle is simple: set up the tent in your garden or even in the children’s room.
For the kids, it’s a chance to have fun and feel like an adventure, and for you, it’s a chance to go back to childhood. A little tip: remember to have a flashlight to make shadows on the canvas of the tent or to tell the children a story that will give them shivers down their spines. Also, here are some tips on how to keep mosquitoes away during the summer!
