Summer Activities for Kids and Children

Updated on May 31, 2011

There are lot of activities and creative things that kids can do in summers and especially in summer vacations. They can do some drawing and painting, enhance their imagination skills by painting and drawing things that they use to imagine. As this hub is specifically to answer in-home summer activities asked by organicflower, Kids can also play some indoor games like carrom. They can also play with camera and develop the hobby of photography.

You may ask your kid to write something on your country or city. They can even learn more about the culture and then make a project on it. They can just write down few things and put some photographs about the same. They can also write on some ancient arts, or make a project on Dinosaurs.

In all, there are many things and topics in which a kid may find interest and start making some project. Apart from making your kid busy, do you know it may even help you in posting couple of hubs and articles based on your kids findings and earn some dollars. So go and ask your little champ to make a project on some interesting topic.

If you have some hobby like playing guitar or any musical instrument, dancing, then you can teach that activity to your kid. And if one can go out, then there are even more things to do, like one can go for swimming, go out to play sports and learn new sports. This will help your child remain fit and strong even in lazy summer vacations.

If your kids like reading, then they can develop hobby to read novels and other knowledgeable books to help understand the things better. It is always better to first ask your child about his/her interest and then suggest the things to do. If the child will do activities of his/her own interest then definitely, they will do their best to enjoy that activity and eventually learn the things. So give them some projects to make with their interest, and you will also feel good watching your kids enjoy the summers at home. You never know which hobby and activity may become a career option for your child.

      Really glassvisage, summer time was real fun. I miss those happening summer days.

      Thanks for the luck, but it is going to take enough time as my writing work is still in progress.

      Summer is a great time for fun activities for kids! Drawing, writing, and even preparing for my next school year was fun for me :)

      Thanks weblog for the comments, but really computer and especially internet has affected our life dramatically and made us so addicitve that sometimes we do not even care to sleep. But this is the only reason we have HP and we are here.

      Painting was my hobby and I had spent good time for it in school days. Even I won prizes, it was all fine until computers and internet came into my life and now I'm an addict to both. LOL!!

      Anyway, painting can be a good summer activity, it's creative and useful in some way. Thumbs up for the nice hub!!

      For pre-schoolers, well they can do anything they would like to, just give them some pencil or color and a drawing sheet. You will get some real art work... besides this look at this hub for small kids activities:

      Hope you will find it helpful.
