Creating Summer Memories With Your Children
Summer can be a long break for your children but it can also be a wonderful time to reconnect and create fun summer memories. We have put together a list of some fun ideas that you can easily try with your family.
- Jump in the car for a local day trip.
- Set up a lemonade stand.
- Camp out in your backyard.
- Visit a local farm and have a day of milking cows, and collecting eggs.
- Head to the beach with buckets and spades in hand.
- Make lunch or dinner together, being creative with your sandwich fillings.
- Rent a boat or paddleboard.
- Create art outside using nature – leaves, twigs, stones etc.
- Grow fruits or vegetables together or let them have their own patch of garden to grow some real food.
- Take a picnic to a local park.
- Create a summer journal together. Our Vacation Journal (or Holiday Journal for UK customers) is just the thing.This 20 page activity booklet encourages children to write, color, draw, stick-in their collectibles and eventually show what they have been doing during their time away from school. An activity that teachers are calling out for!
