5 ways your kids can have an enriching summer

A few tips for staying active and engaged this summer.

It’s that time of the year again. The weather is heating up, the ice cream truck is making its rounds and school is out. In today’s tech world, making sure your kids stay active and engaged this summer can be more challenging than ever.

Here are 5 ways your kids can have an enriching summer, learn new things and still have fun in the sun.

 

  1. Compromise on Indoor Activities

Sometimes kids want to stay indoors and play video games all day while it’s a perfect Ferris Bueller day outside. That’s okay. Just like adults, kids also fall into different moods depending on the day.  Don’t try to fight it. Think of it as an outlet for kids. Video games serve as a great  escape, stress reliever and have proven to help train the brain to become more agile and improve strategic thinking.

 

  1. Moderation

Of course with any indoor activity should come moderation. Especially in the summer. Vitamin D has proven to improve one’s overall mental well-being. Make sure to regulate your kid’s indoor time by balancing it out with outdoor activities. Even something as simple as going out to grab a smoothie or some ice cream can serve as an “excuse” to get some fresh air.

 

  1. Reward Your Kids

Going hand in hand with moderation, reward your kids for good behavior. For the times they actually do shut off their video games or put their phone down when you ask them to, make it known that you appreciate it. As stated earlier, in this tech world, we live in a world of not only instant gratification but constant distraction too. There are plenty of fun activities that you can do together. Have fun and experience new things with your kids. You’ll find that it is just as rewarding to yourself, too.

 

  1. Engage in Their Interests

There are plenty of both indoor and outdoor summer camps that meet your kid’s interests. Nowadays, there are camps for just about everything! Language camps, sports camps, tech camps, sleepaway camps and countless others. Talk to your kids. Find out what they are passionate about. Are they obsessed with Minecraft? Flip that around and make it educational. There’s plenty of Summer Tech camps that teach kids how to code using Minecraft.

 

       5. Be patient

Before you know it, your kids will be all grown up and ready to leave for college. One day you’ll sit back and reflect on how it all went by so fast. Remember to breathe. Live in the present and enjoy the now. Appreciate every sunny day, but also find good in the rainy ones too. Create lasting memories with your kids that’ll enrich their lives and form strong bonds with you.
