Ideas For Summer Fun In The School Holidays

As the school holidays are way into the last few weeks, this is where children start to get bored of the longness and want to be back at school. I remember this oh too well, how I would wake up just wishing it was September and that I could go and see my friends again because the holidays are so long and finding things to keep yourself occupied is hard work, even harder though for younger children. 

So, here is a great list of 20 ideas for summer fun that you can do to help keep your children busy over these next few weeks before school starts. I know that we'll be doing a few of these over the next few days but I'll definitely be looking into and giving number 12 a go.

All these little can be done to keep children busy and they are all also great for bonding and getting out there and doing something yourself. 

I actually remember using potatoes to make shapes and painting with them when I was a child. It is a great idea as you can create any shapes imaginable and it also helps children's hand-eye coordination whilst they are making the small designs.

Going for a long bike ride might be good for your child but it's great for keeping fit and means you get to see some awesome sights too. 

Baking and cooking dinners together are also brill ideas as not only do you get to do it as a family, meaning your child is more likely to eat it if they've seen and helped it being made, but also you get to eat the finished results. 

There are some fantastic ideas and I know we will definitely be trying some. out, will you?

  1. I can't believe how quickly the summer holidays have gone, we made so many plans and haven't even done half of them!

  2. Thanks for those - my kids are defo ready for school again. I wish the holidays could be shorter - even four weeks would be better than 6. It cost me a fortune for days out, treats etc then there is the new uniforms, shoes etc! Luckily I have saved a little more this Summer thanks to the warm weather - as bike rides and walks on the beack and in the countryside are free (though ice creams and lollies cost money!)

  3. I love your summer fun ideas. It just shows that you can keep children happy without spending a fortune. It's giving them your time and attention that counts not money spent in my opinion
