Summer vacations are very relaxing for kids but they can easily get bored too! So how about some great ideas to try some fun activities or projects which will keep them happily busy and interested? And we think you can get involved too and enjoy the bright, sunny days to the fullest!

Cook out! Try “smores”, barbeque. Experiment with different kinds of foods.
Arrange a delicious picnic in a beautiful park.
Take the little ones to the botanical garden or the zoo. Let them get close to nature.
Visit the beach and have a fun day splashing in the water and collecting shells!

If there is a fair or carnival going on in your locality, take the children there. Fun rides, cotton candy, popcorn, ice cream! What can be more fun?

Your whole family can put up a drama performance together. It will be a great way to inspire imagination and creativity.

A puzzle race can be very entertaining. All of you can try to different puzzles with same number of pieces and see who finishes first!
You can simply go for a walk with your kids and ask them to gather any natural objects that they might find lying around. Then they can create an interesting collage from them!
Summer is the perfect time to have fresh salads, cool smoothies and fruit juices. Get your kids to help you while making them!
An evening of stargazing can be absolutely magical. See how many constellations you can recognize…
Teach tiny tots to make colorful and funky jewelry from beads. They will be engrossed.
Let the little ones experiment with some cool hairdos, like spikes, braids or non permanent colors!
Reading is a great hobby. Your kids can join a reading club too or maybe listen to an audio-book of their favorite classic.

Put your origami skills to good use. Create fun stuff with your kids and use them as home decor!
