Summers are here and most of us are faced with the question of what to do with all that time in hand? What to do to entertain our little ones and how to engage their curious minds and active bodies?
Summer give you an opportunity to make sure that your child stay busy and happy. Moreover, summer can be a great time for you to spend quality time with your child, experience new things, grow in different directions and spend some fun time together as a family. This is the best time of any year when your child is at break and you are at ease because you do not have to get them ready in the morning for school bus or worry about their class tests or pending home assignments etc.
So, this summer follow these ideas to make your child feel special and properly channelize her energy & time while having fun during the summers-
Ask your child to create a canopy, make a tree swing, make a scarecrow or create a collage out of old magazines and keep your child busy with these activities.
Encourage your child to watch the sunrise, make a card for a friend, go stargazing, bead some bracelets and sell them for charity etc.
Search for the best camps happening around your city like adventure camps, arts camp, aerobics & dance camps and sports camps and enroll her to a summer camp.
