5 Summer Activities Ideas for your kids
Ren will be graduating this month and I lined up some summer activities that we can do,so that he will not to get bored during his vacation. As much as possible, I would like him to experience the fun that I had when I was still a kid just like him – active, adventurous and carefree.
Here are some of the things that I am planning to do with him this summer:
Create a lot of DIY Stuff – I love DIY stuff, makes me want to try and do it for myself whenever I see one. At Ren’s school, the teachers always create DIY items (usually recycled items) to teach the kids (this is one of the things that I like about his school). Unfortunately, I have no original ideas of my own, I am not that creative you know. The good thing about DIY is that, you can make kids learn and play at the same time without ruining your budget. If you are not that creative like me, you just need a reliable internet to check your favorite social medias like Pinterest for ideas hehehe.
Visit the Museum – The only Museum that Ren had visited so far was the Nido Science Centrum at Mall of Asia. I wish we could bring him to the Museo Pambata and the Mind Museum soon.
Introduce him to a new sport – I asked Ren last week if he wanted to try basketball, karate or swimming this summer and he said that he likes swimming, so I think I will enroll him at the Milo Sports Clinic near our area.
Have an indoor or outdoor camping – At Ren’s school, I saw how camping can be fun.
He had his own tent which looks like this (picture below) which I saw at Tmart.com but unfortunately, he is now tall and I don’t think he can still fit inside his old tent.
If you have little kids at the house then I suggest you try to do some camping activities with them. You can either make your own tent (use your old blankets) or if you have some extra money to spare then you can buy this kind of house tent at Tmart. The inflatable tents will be delivered right to your doorsteps.
Learn Filipino – There are a lot of Filipino kids now who speak the English language more than the Filipino language, and my son is one of them (read related story here). Ren will be in grade school next year, and the Filipino subject will be tougher that time. He struggles at Filipino and we need to work on it.
