Things for children to do during the holidays

Hi everyone,

With schools breaking up for the summer holidays later this month, I thought it would be nice to share thoughts and ideas on ways to keep children entertained over this long stretch of holiday.

It can sometimes be a struggle to keep children entertained and occupied during the holidays:
What activities do your children enjoy doing over the summer?

Has your child picked up any slightly surprising hobbies that they’re looking forward to spending more time on, such as bird watching or gardening?

The holidays can also be a good time to catch up on revision and projects, and work on any areas causing children problems.

One way of keeping up with children’s reading skills is to visit the local library and let them choose books that interest them. You could encourage them to write reading lists of books they’ve read, or even write book reviews.

What would your tip be for the holidays?
