Our summer days started a day after recognition/graduation last week. As soon as they woke up and realized there’s no more school that day, they started wondering what they can do this summer. Oh, I wanted to sing Phineas and Ferb theme song to them:
Theres 104 Days of Summer Vacation,
And School comes along just to End it.
So the Annual Problem for our Generation,
Is finding a good way to Spend it.
and I would want them to be creative like Phineas and Ferbs, but I don’t think I can handle a rocket or a mummy or Nanobots! So before our kids start building their own rocker or climb up the Eiffel Tower, let’s share great Summer Fun Ideas that our kids can do this summer.
of course.. summer is all bout swimming, schedule a playdate where your kids and their friends can have a swimming party on your backyard. And that’s what we did last Sunday. We had a Halo-Halo/ swimming party. And the kids had so much fun, good thing Levy brought another pool (hindi sila nagkasya sa pool namin!)
Swimming party is a great way to enhance your kids’ social skill and locomotion. The fun in swimming can keep your kids busy for a day or two as the experience gives them a lot of things to talk about.
Board games were popular during our time.. we used to spend hours playing scrabble or monopoly and I wanted my boys to experience the same. A few months ago we bought them board games (chess and scrabble) and so far, it’s making them busy for an hour or two. Scrabble also help them enrich their vocabulary while chess makes them think more.
Arts and Crafts
Buy some paper and some paints and brushes and let them “paint” all they want. You can also encourage them to create post card like art works that you can send to your relatives abroad using international parcel delivery. You can also teach them to make dye shirts since it’s a perfect shirt for this season. Here, almost every Saturday we have our art session and it keeps them busy for the whole afternoon.
It’s another way to spend summer. Enroll them on Summer Clinics such as MILO Summer Sports Clinics, perfect for kids ages 7-16 years old. They offer 10 different sports: badminton, chess, football, gymnastics, karatedo, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, and volleyball.
