10 Things To Do With Your Children This Summer

1. Create a Summer Diary
      Encourage the kids to keep a diary or holiday scrapbook. It’s so important for them to tap into their      
      creativity. They can take photos, draw or collect small things they find and write about their experiences.     
      This   will become a great memory book for them in the future.

2. Make your own games. Get some card sheets, pencils and scissors and make your own deck of snap cards.

3. Go on picnics. Have a chill day with the family. Pack last nights left over's and enjoy some fresh air. You don’t      have to go far to have a picnic… why not set one up in the garden?

4. Get the kids in the kitchen. Once a week plan a cook-off. Involve the kids in the process from the beginning,    
     let them choose from a selection of recipes that you have ingredients for or check out some of our easy to 
     follow family recipes.

5. Write a story together. Let your imagination run free! Each family member could write one page of content 
     and then pass it on to the next member to add to. Alternatively you could have a story writing competition. 
     Get the kids to re-write their favourite fairytale and pick the most creative story as the winner.

6. Go camping. This is a great way for families to bond and spend time together enjoying the outdoors. If you 
     don’t have a tent or garden, build a tent indoors with blankets and sheets.

7. Have a treasure hunt. Create a treasure map with clues to find some treats you have hidden around the 
    house.  It doesn’t have to be expensive, anything will be exciting when it is found.

8. Have a garage or ebay clear out. Get the kids to tidy out their rooms of anything unwanted. Not only will your home be a little less cluttered, your kids will learn the value of money and earn some extra pocket money!

9. Go on a bike ride.  This is a great way of getting or staying fit these holidays. You could visit a play-park, 
    beach or cinema. Click here for safety tips for kids when cycling.

10. Make sure your kids are educated about sun safety. The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code is for those who work 
      outdoors with children, ensuring that all in their care are properly sun protected, ALL day long. Ask your club 
      or coach if they’re OK Accredited – if not, ask them to visit www.melanoma-fund.co.uk and blow the 
     whistle on sunburn
