The summer holidays are much anticipated by both parents and children, but when it comes to six weeks off school, filling the time can seem like quite the mammoth task. Coming up with new, fun and exciting activities that will interest both parents and children is quite a skill. To help you out we have come up with a comprehensive list of some of the most popular things to do this summer:
Go to the beach – Obviously it helps if you live near to the cost, but if you have to travel a little it can all be part for the adventure. Packing up the car with your blankets, picnic sandwiches and suntan lotion is a summer staple for all families; make sure you don’t miss out on the experience this summer. You can also make the most of your time at the beach with activities when you are there, such as kite flying, water sports and sand castle making, so don’t forget to pack your bucket and spade!
Your own garden – If you are lucky enough to have an outdoor space large enough to set up activities go for it. You can have your children invite their friends round, put out finger food, get the paddling pool out and have loads of fun on a summer’s day. For the adults you could even break out the barbeque, if you ask people to bring their own bottle you could be looking at a relatively cheap and easy day. To impress your guests and give a real summery feel to your home, why not go all out and go for a flower delivery from Interflora, your home will be filled with the light scent of the blooms while showing off a luxurious aesthetic.
Fruit picking – A trip to the nearest strawberry farm is really exciting for young children. You can also get a lot of fruit for your money at farms and make some really healthy summer snacks from the produce. If your children do enjoy fruit picking, why not buy some seeds and grow some in your own garden. Getting your children into garden can teach them important life skills about cultivating something in a nurturing manner.
