The countdown to the summer holidays have officially begun, meaning the sound of the kids screaming ‘I’m bored!’ is already ringing through your ears before the school bell has even rang for the final time. If you’re dreading six weeks of restless kids, we’ve come up with a list of boredom busting activities to keep your youngsters entertained and happy, no matter what the weather throws your way.
Sunny Days Outdoors
As much as we give British weather a hard time, there are a few weeks a year when the sunshine is glorious. To make the most of these rare, sunny days, get your kids out and about with one of our exciting outdoor activities, guaranteed to let your children’s adventurous side out!
When temperatures get hotter, there’s no better way to cool down than with a paddling pool! Every generation has enjoyed filling up the paddling pool on a sunny day and kids now are no different. Buy a pool big enough for everyone to use, as they are ideal for relaxing as well as splashing around!
A bike is one of the best investments you can buy, allowing your kids to enjoy a true sense of adventure when they’re out and about on two wheels. Whether they’re zipping up and down the street, or you take them on a trip to the local park, a bike offers endless hours of fun.
Playhouses are great for getting their imaginations going, allowing them to have their own space to play and have fun while you sit back and relax in the garden.
To keep more than one child happy, why not invest in some sports equipment to bring a little team spirit to your summer holidays. Football is the ultimate team sport if you have a garden big enough for a match, if not, why not rally the troops and head to the local park? All you need is a ball and some goal posts!
Indoors on Rainy Days
Although we hope for non-stop
sunshine over the summer months, Britain has a habit of throwing lashes of rain
and murky cloud our way, keeping the kids indoors as opposed to playing outside
all day long. To stop them getting bored and restless, here’s a list of best buys
to keep them stimulated and happy, even when they’re housebound.
Crayons, Colouring and Drawing
Colouring has been one of the best loved hobbies for generations, allowing your kids to unleash their creative sides without making an almighty mess. All you need is some crayons and plain paper, or a colouring book for kids who aren’t a big fan of drawing!
It may be six weeks away from school, but that doesn’t mean educational activities can’t be fun. Reading is a great way to pass time and get your kids learning, all while enjoying stories about their favourite characters.
Kinetic Sand brings all the fun of the seaside indoors… without the mess! This magical sand sticks to itself, not your hands, all without needing to add a drop of water. Each Kinetic Sand Set comes with 1lb of sand, three moulds and a sand tray to play in, keeping the kids entertained for hours!
Play Doh has been keeping kids happy for years, offering non stop creative fun without the mess. At Studio, we have loads of Play Doh sets for boys and girls to choose from, perfect for keeping them entertained for hours.
Board games are the original rainy day activity; from Hungry Hippos to Jenga, Connect Four and Twister, there’s tonnes of different board games available to suit all kinds of kids. Buy a variety of different board games to guarantee a few hours of peace and quiet!
