Summer is the time of the year where you get the chance to embrace nature in its fullest bloom. Make use of this time to take your kid out and give a taste of the outdoor life. For example, you can go out on a hike into the mountains, camp at night, and fall asleep watching the stars. Take your kid fishing or do gardening together. Make a hammock in your garden, and fall asleep with its gentle rocking. It is essential that a kid gets to live this life, since this is the only period they get to have a break from school and enjoy nature without getting frozen down to their bones.
Bake sale fun
A bake sale is always fun – all the more so when it’s summer. Get your kid involved in the baking, and make the cookies or the cakes in whatever the shape they prefer. Have a small stall outside your house with all these delicacies. This way, your kid will not only have fun, but will also learn the art of selling. And of course – give your kid the income.
Try all things cool
Summer time is for all things cool, from ice cream to refreshing lemonades. Have family outings to the park, with your bag packed with a cool drink. This can be ice cold lemonade, an iced fruit punch, strawberry lemonade or even berry lemonade! Of course, slushie drinks are another must have during a summer. The crunched ices mixed with flavoured slushie syrup gives you a combo that is perfect for a hot summer’s day.
You can even try making snow cones with different fruity flavours! The wide variety of slushie syrup flavours available in the market gives you ample choices to choose from.
Summer is the time for all the water fun! There is absolutely nothing thrilling on a summer’s day than hitting the water park near you! However, be mindful of safety, as most water slides require adult supervision, or an age limit.
You can even have some good old water fun at home. There are many companies that now offer mini water slides at home, and they usually come really cheap. This is an amazing way to have fun right in your back yard. Invite your kid’s friends for a classic summer time party.
Or go for a dip in a lake. This is, in fact, something that most kids do not get to do often; and an experience unparalleled to any other. Go on a picnic near a lakeside, and have some water fun in the lake. However, be mindful of safety as well.
And do not forget to dance in a mild summer’s rain. There is nothing refreshing to the human mind than a dance in the rain, and it is important that you let your kid embrace the joy of nature. Splish splash – have fun. That’s what summer is all about!
