Posted by My Chapter One on 27.03.2022

You know that summers are here when…… the water bottles go inside the fridge, A.C. servicing professionals are in demand, the transition from boots to flip flops, the media is full of summertime product advertisements – ac, cooler, prickly heat powders, cold drinks, tourism ads, service provider ads like Urban clap and the likes!

Soon, social media will be flooded with photos of people traveling to beaches and mountains, and different cities/countries because it’s Summer vacation time! Summer vacation means different things to different people. Summer vacations remind us of our journeys to our grandparent’s houses, traveling to a new destination for a holiday, lots of fun and playing with our friends, summer camps, learning a new hobby or a skill, joining a library, reading to our heart’s content, and so on. In short, summer vacations = Fun times 

This summer vacation, we bring to you a list of things to do with your child. Apart from the things that most of us have already planned like traveling, summer camps, hobby classes, sports activities, etc, here are a few more suggestions to add to the list to make your summer vacation brighter!

SUMMER WRITING

There is so much that children will do during the summer break. They will create a lot of memories and maybe learn something new as well! How about getting them to write a daily journal. A diary where they can write all about their day every night. This will not only make for a keepsake of memories but also boost their creative skills and improve their vocabulary! 

BUILD LEGO

Creativity comes alive with Lego! Forts, palaces, trucks, bridges, cars, space monsters, machines, trains…basically anything and everything that comes to your mind. Lego is such an engaging activity that it can get the littlest and the oldest involved and spend hours building them without even realizing it!

MAKE TENTS

Calling all cushions, pillows, table covers, and bedsheets this summer! Let’s get together and camp out in our backyard and our balconies or simply inside our rooms… err.. that makes it camp”in”g! 😊Build a fort, build a tent, get inside..bring some treats and your favorite book to read! That’s the perfect plan!

TRY A NEW RECIPE

What’s cooking? Vacations are the perfect time to experiment with different types of food items in your kitchen. It gets even more interesting if you have a helping hand and what could be better than a tiny version of yourself! Make the most of this summer vacation to learn and taste some new recipes and also share them with your friends and neighbors. It’s not just fun but also a very rewarding experience for kids of all ages. It also teaches them to share the load and learn about the measurements and names of various ingredients. So, what’s cooking in your kitchen this summer?

BRING OUT OLD TOYS

Out of sight, out of mind! Yes, that’s what happens with most of the toys! Summer vacations allow plenty of time for kids to sort out their toys and into various categories such as:  the ones they’ve outgrown, the ones that they completely forgot about, their favourite childhood toy which they would never want to part with! That’s an opportunity to clean up, make some room and also have a sack full of toys to donate. Ah! The joy of giving 😊

BOARD GAMES

When the sun isup and the heat is scorching, board games to the rescue. Yeah! All the board games, start marching! Take out all those board games and play all of them as a family, with their group of friends and with grandparents! Monopoly, Jenga, Ludo, Snakes and ladders, carrom, chess, Pictionary, Pictureka, fishing game, uno and the list is long! So, this summer game your answer to getting bored is in the Board game! (Homonyms)

READ TOGETHER

A family that reads together grows together!Do we need to say anymore? 😊 Okay, if you insist. Read books together, talk about books, decide a genre, discuss the story, discuss how you would have liked the story to end or a character to behave in a certain way. Start a dinner table conversation around the favorite part of the book. Sounds like a plan? Enjoy. 

VISIT A LIBRARY

The joy of walking to a library, flaunting your library card and issuing a book sounds like a forgotten tale from the past! So, take time out this summer to go visit a library with your child. As you walk through the aisles of the libraries surrounded by books, absorb the vibe! Notice the silence. Sit and read a book over there. Get them to experience the joy of being surrounded by books and being one with them! Pure bliss. 

FUN EXPERIMENTS

Make a note of science in your day-to-day life and make it fun by doing fun experiments with your child. Simple things like sliding a car down a gradient and sending it back up – Gravity explained so well. Mix baking soda with water and have a mini volcano erupt in your kitchen. Don’t mind the mess please, as this is what will make one of the most memorable parts of their growing up. Blow a balloon and then let it go flying without bottling its neck, the sound it makes will bring out the giggles in them! Experience these small joys of life – the scientific way!

OUTDOOR FUN

Go for a walk in the park, observe the line of ants going up and down gathering food. Pick up a rock, find out which family of rocks it belongs to. Do some rock painting activity at home. Collect dried leaves, make some art with them. Being outside in nature is important for all of us and especially children. Fresh air, exercise, and observation amidst nature make up for an integral part of childhood.

Hope these activities help you have a great summer with your family! 

Make memories and have loads of fun and share photos with us/tag us on Instagram, Facebook! 

We hope you enjoy doing all this and more with your child so that”: “We know what you did last summer”! 😉
