Preparing for the summer holidays – Part 2
Date: 21 Jul 2016
If the last blog didn’t give you enough ideas on how to entertain the family over the summer holidays, we have a few more great activities for you!
- Get gardening!
Start up a summer project in the garden and plant some seeds with the children! Cucumbers, peppers, beans and tomatoes are perfect vegetables to plant in your allotment, and a sunflower would be a lovely addition to watch grow throughout summer.
- Visit a local farm or zoo
Local farms are a brilliant way to exposure children to different types of animals, see them up close and sometimes even feed them! A trip to the zoo will probably cost a bit more, but usually have more animals for children to see and learn about.
- Obstacle course
Children love the thrill of a sports day at school; but there is no reason why you can’t recreate that at home! Set up a mini obstacle course suitable for your children’s ages, and let the family sports day commence!
- Have a treasure hunt
A treasure hunt around the house, garden, or local park will be a great way to drop in some presents for the children for their good behaviour over the summer holidays – and who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? Get creative with the theme of the treasure hunt; Pirate, Gruffalo, or a Bear Hunt we think will go down a storm!
Let us know what you are planning for your summer holiday activities via our social media pages! Candy Floss hopes you all stay safe this summer – and have a fantastic time!
