Children wait patiently for the summer holiday to spend their free time playing and being active. Likewise, parents wait for this holiday to spend a longer time with their children. Today, we offer you several ideas to spend a fun and useful holiday with minimal cost and efforts.
It is important for parents to plan ahead if they know their children will be interested in acquiring certain skills during summer, such as developing a talent, learning a language or a particular sport. Then they will be able to schedule the chosen activities in such a way that it is fun for the whole family and even participate when possible.
Besides registering your child in a club or a center specialized in developing skills, you can spend a good time swimming or domestic farming since both activities combine between fun and benefit.
Young children have an unlimited urge to learn and explore so when children are two years and above parents can have their children participate in doing age-appropriate chores in and around the house. It helps children learn about what they need to do to care for themselves, a home and a family. They learn skills they can use in their adult lives, like preparing meals, cleaning, organising and keeping a garden.
Parents and children can also learn some methods to recycle things at home. Thus, this helps stimulates the child’s creativity and teaches him/her about the environment.
Additionally, rhythmic dance is a great activity for children to release their energy. You can make a playlist of your child’s favorite songs and involve them in making special dances, fun will be guaranteed!
Educational games, such as building blocks, puzzles, and other concentration-based games are all important activities and are perfect to incorporate during summer holiday. It is also possible to develop the child’s skill by using crayons and paint to color various drawings on papers, pottery, or even stones.
Educational experts advise not to underestimate any game or idea invented by the child unless it is dangerous. Building a wall of pillows inside the room, even if the room looks chaotic for adults, would be an interesting adventure for the child!
Remember, strengthening your relationship with your child is not only tied to the length of time you spend with him/her, but the quality of the time you are spending together and being involved in your child’s world.
