It’s not an easy job to keep kids busy and entertained during their long summer vacations. Especially when your kid is super active and full of energy like my girl. She is a very energetic kid, she gets bored very quickly. So I have to make sure she didn’t get bored and keep her busy in some activities.
For her, summer vacation is the most wonderful and adventurous time of the year. But for me it might be changing my schedule and racking my brain for activities to keep her busy for the day. We love, creativity, art, innovation, technology and fun.
It’s a time to bond with your child and maybe let your own inner child come out to play. But it can also be hard and stressful time. It’s best if you do a little bit of advance planning for summer vacation. It’s even better if you prepare yourself with plan of activities to keep your little bundle of joy busy and entertained.
Don’t forget to ask your kids about their interest when you do planning for their summer vacation. Because it’s
Painting is always a fun and dipped in colors, funny faces. You can make some amazing painting collections.
You can buy some activities book for your kids. You can play with them, just like I do. I bought some activity books for Yashi. They will love to have you as their partner in their activities.
You can purchase drawing books for your kids which may be blank, with dotted lines, with some pictures etc. So they can color them with their own choice of colors and imaginations.
Role Play Activity
Yashi love to play different – different roles like sometimes she copied animated characters like Chota Bheem, Motu Patlu etc. Some characters from movies. But from all of them, she loves to play her teacher’s role and
Play Indoor Games
I am sure you know plenty of indoor games which you play in your childhood days. Let re-live them with your kids. In summers, it’s not possible to go out every day to play, that’s why I add some indoor games in Yashi Summer Vacation Planner like
Snake and Ladder
Join any Activity Classes
This summer vacation, I am planning for Yashi to join dance classes because she loves dancing. It keeps her busy, at least one to one and a half hour a day and improves her dancing skills. You can also enroll your kid for any activity classes according to your kid’s interest. Like singing, painting, and swimming. etc
Decorations (Pot Painting)
This is my personal favorite activity which I play with my girl mostly. We just have to sit and do as Yashi say. It’s really nice to spend some time with your kid. We drink lots of water (that’s tea for Yashi) lol. We eat some snacks at Yashi tea party.
Now Yashi is in 2nd Standard, She loves to read on her own. So I bought some characters storybooks like Peter Pan, Pinocchio, The Princess and the pea, Bear can’t sleep. These are some of them. Remember whenever you buy a storybook for kids, it should have lots of images. Because images help them to relate with stories. And they enjoy their story time. That’s why I always buy a character storybook for Yashi.
Yashi loves to make her own sandwiches, decorate cookies, cakes with me. I also enjoy her company because she asks a lot of questions and talks about her friends, school time and teachers. Which entertain me and helps me to know more about her friends and teachers.
Make Key Holder
A few days back Yashi and I made a beautiful key holder for our home. It was totally her idea. We used pompom, some painting colors, glitter paper, wooden beads, ribbon and cotton buds. We used our personal photos because I wanted some personal touch.
Watch Kids Movies
We created a list of movies that are full of entertainment. We sit on the bean bags with popcorn, juices and lights off to get the feelings of Cinema Hall.
I personally feel that activities kits are far better than watch activities on YouTube or any other application. So I bought some activity kit for Yashi to keep her engage.
Yashi love study. I bought some cursive writing books for Yashi to improve her cursive writing. We are planning to do one page a day. You can buy those from online.
Go to visit Plant Nursery
Nowadays pollution is a headline in every newspaper. So I want her
Make tree with ice-cream sticks
Talk with them about your childhood
As a talkative kid, Yashi loves to hear our childhood stories. Whenever we go to our hometown
