How to keep your children busy this summer
Posted on July 10 2020
This summer is not like the previous ones. The kids have been home since March this year with home schooling. That means that parents have been with their children 24/7 due to the Pandemic.
Many parents must work from home which has been a challenge to keep the children on track, while they are busy working and the kids are online home schooling.
Now, the Summer has arrived, and kids are out of online classes which make for parents more challenging to keep them busy. They must get creative how to entertain their children to spend the summer.
Here are some ideas how to keep this summer your kids entertain:
They can keep your children entertained for hours. These are good for training their minds. The children will develop problem-solved skills as boosting logical reasoning.
- Decorating the children’s Bedroom:
This is a particularly good project for girls 6-12 years old. At that age they have a defined personality and is a good project. Decorating can develop their taste and artistic ability, their room is their space- sanctuary. With this project you can set up some time during the day, and let the kids make a list of things they like to have in their bedroom, give them a notebook and let them choose the colours of the walls, pick up the theme of the room, show them several choices this project can keep them busy, planning their room.
- Book Club:
Encourage your children to read a proper book for their ages. Encourage them to connect with their friends over Zoom and discuss the book. This will keep them in contact with their friends and will encourage them to read and develop social skills.
- Make Holiday Greeting cards:
Let the children develop their imagination making Thanksgiving, birthday or Holiday cards. They can start making a list of people your family and friends you will be sending the cards on each special occasion. This is a great project that will develop their artistic side. They can even make their own envelops.
