Schools out for Summer Holidays Soon
Not looking forward to the summer holidays and wondering how to entertain the kids?
We all know that kids need to be entertained and long gone are the days when they played outside all day. It can be hard to keep kids entertained on summer holidays. Playing games like kick the can and rounders and getting up to all kinds of mischief like climbing trees and innocently mucking about. Parents can get quite stressed having to think of things to keep the kids happy and entertained all summer long not to mention the expense of it all.
It is very important to try to keep the balance as kids nowadays like to have a more structured life. There are lots of activities and summer camps that help with routine and discipline. It is ok if the kids get bored because that’s what kids do, it’s quite normal. Don’t feel under pressure to constantly put pressure on yourself. It’s great for kids to get outside and go exploring and fresh air is always good for both you and the kids.
Keep a Schedule
It’s always a good idea to try to keep them going to bed at the same time as the rest of the year even if it is light outside and for them to get up at the same time in the morning. This helps with routine and their mood. Don’t start eating junk food but it is ok as a treat. We have all seen kids after drinking a can of coke.
Try do something new and adventurous and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. Go for walks in the woods or the local park or have a nice picnic.
Be realistic and manage your expectations and don’t get too stressed. With the kids in the house all day, you will obviously not have as much time for yourself. If you get the kids up to bed at their regular bedtime you will then be able to recharge your batteries. Most importantly enjoy your time with your family as they do grow very fast and stay healthy, happy and positive.
It is important to financially protect your kids from sudden death or illness. The easiest way to do this is by buying a life insurance policy. Oomph provides you a policy that fits you budget and lifestyle. Get your quote here.
