5 Kid-Friendly Things To Do During This Summer

Posted by on

Written by, Tracy Diaz 

Your kids are at home and, unfortunately, coronavirus has made it almost impossible for people to have fun this summer. Beaches all over the world are either out of bounds or too risky to go for a family fun day. Visiting a museum, or any other crowded place for that matter is a huge risk to take.

But coronavirus or not, your kids are looking up to you for entertainment. They want you to inspire their young playful minds. So, which fun activities are still safe for kids this summer? 

Well, the great thing is that there are many awesome DIY projects that your kids can undertake with your supervision. There also are games you can play with them. You can especially borrow a few from your childhood- before the internet ruined outdoor games for most people.  You will never run out of fun ideas if you are creative enough to see opportunities around your home. 

To help you build your confidence and creativity in choosing the right activities for your kids, here are 5 examples of the kid-friendly things you can do to keep the fun going and to help the kids learn something new in the process.

1. Backyard activities

Collect jump ropes, hula hoops, hoses, and stones and together build a backyard obstacle course. You can make it as advanced as you want using materials that you can readily find around the house. After the kids learn how to do it, disassemble it, step aside, and ask them to compete on who can recreate it within the shortest time. You can even spice it up by including a prize for winners in every round!

If your kids love camping but no campground is open this summer, bring the campground to your home by hitching a tent in the backyard. The kids will love spending the night underneath the stars, with you providing them with security, of course. If there is a traditional meal you prepare or game you play when camping, be sure to include it in this at-home camping plan.

2. Enjoy nature

There are many things you can do in nature, away from the crowds. You can, for example, catch butterflies and moths outside your home. Just ensure that you catch them using a net so you don’t kill them. You can catch other insects too provided they don’t bite or aren’t poisonous. You can then use an insect (or grade science) book to learn about the insects you catch. Use a magnifying glass to study their wings, the body, the antennae, and the legs. Your kids will learn and have fun in the process.

Summer is also a great time to study flowers. Gardens are blooming with flowers of all types and shapes. Collect flowers and try to identify their names, colours, adaptations, and so on.

Once you are done with insects and flowers, take the kids on a bird-watching adventure. Bring a camera with you and ask each kid to take photos of every bird they see. Once you go back home, use those pictures to identify the names of the birds and their body features.

If you cannot go outside, bring nature indoors by collaborating with the kids to grow fresh herbs in containers. Repurpose all sorts of containers in the home, including old coffee cans, plastic cups and jugs, mason jars, among other containers.

3. Visit a splash park

The weather is great for a Spring break in Florida. If you can manage to visit a splash park and keep social distance while there, by all means, go and cool off from all the quarantining and self-isolating you have had to withstand for months. You don’t have to swim if you consider it unsafe.

If you're lucky enough to live near the beach, it makes sense to take your kids sunbathing. Remember to bring your own toys and to keep social distance.

Note: You need to sanitize your hands and clean up after every trip out of the house. Also, avoid touching outdoor surfaces.

4. Go Fishing

Teach the boys how to fish this winter. Just be sure not to break the law while at it. Acquire all the certification needed for it, and buy all the fishing gear the kids need.

5. Nighttime Kids Activities

You can play flashlight tag, a game where each player has a flashlight. Players have to avoid a flashlight’s beam hitting them, so they keep running in circles. It can be pretty fun.

There isn’t a formula for having fun with kids this summer because we have never seen anything like it before. So, go ahead and try anything that keeps the kids occupied until the pandemic is over.
