    Default Summer Activities for Kids

    Kids love having their own personal diary. Even pre-schoolers enjoy
    using theirs to draw pictures in. Begin the summer with a brand new
    journal and a pen (crayons and markers) for each child.

    Stock up on inexpensive art supplies - large newspapers, crayons,
    markers, poster paints, glitter, glue, etc. When your child is in
    the mood you'll be ready with the proper supplies. Use an egg carton
    to place glue, paints and glitter in while working on that special

    Younger and older kids alike can enjoy creating their own special
    necklace. Use egg cartons to organise beads for your older kids and
    macaroni for the younger set. Older kids can thread the beads using
    fishing line, and make long enough to slip over their head. Pre-
    schoolers will enjoy threading their noodles onto shoelaces.

    Does your child enjoy playing with trains or cars? With a bit of
    help from you, he can create his own city - the perfect play area
    for those cars, lorries, trains and play people. Buy an inexpensive

    light-coloured cotton shirt. You will also need a thick piece of
    cardboard or a paper shopping bag, non-toxic colourfast markers or
    paint for fabrics and masking tape. Set up a work space and stretch
    the T-shirt over the cardboard or shopping bag, securing with tape.
    Once the materials are assembled, allow your child to have free
    rein - designing a T-shirt that's totally unique.
