Simple Fun Activities To Keep Your Child Happy This Holiday
As the summer break approaches and schools go on holiday you might find yourself needing to find some extra fun activities for your child to do.
If you are anything like me you won’t want them sat in front of the TV or any other type of screen for the next 6 weeks.
To help you out I’ve listed some really fun activities that are simple and cost effective for you do with your little ones.
1. Chalk Drawing
Chalk to the rescue! The totally awesome thing about chalk is that it just rubs off or washes away.
Stock up on some jumbo sized chalk and get your children to draw something amazing on your sidewalk (just make sure you are allowed to).
My children absolutely love to do this and it keeps them even
4. Bake Cookies
Lets face children love to get in the kitchen and do something fun. How about letting them loose in the kitchen (providing they are old enough) to bake some cookies.
It’s a great disciple for them to be able follow the cookbook instructions and create something incredible to eat.
You never know you might even have a master baker on your hands!
7. Yes/ No Game
I have a confession to make here. I am guilty of playing the yes/ no game as an adult.
The yes/ no game is incredibly simple to play. One person asks questions and the other person is not allowed to answer with yes or no and they are not allowed to shake or nod their heads either.
You have to keep the questions coming really fast though.
8. Build a fort
Most of us have done this at some point in our lives. Building a fort is a fun past time and will definitely get your children’s creative juices flowing.
11. Visit a zoo or a museum
These are both educational and fun. Find out what you have locally to where you live and head down there.
Playing football outside gets the children to have some fresh air give you a few minutes break too. Challenge them to see how many keepy-up-es they can do.
18. Play Dates
Letting your child have a play date will most certainly give you some free time and your child something fun to do. You can also alternate so the next time your child can go over to a friends house too.
