Summer vacations are time for kids to explore museums, visit the parks, go for camps and have fun. But that’s not happening due to the global crisis which has got us locked inside our homes and more than anyone, kids are the ones at greater loss as they are missing out on their childhood with the restriction of not stepping out, no school and no friends.
Kids need to grow and develop mentally and physically and we as parents need to make sure that’s happening even when they are at home. To make their summer break more fun and smooth parents can;
Set goals: Inform the kids what all are you planning for them to do during their summer breaks. Get them excited. Summer break is not just about playing but also learning new things. Ask your child what they would like to learn, a new language, chess, piano or any other musical instrument. Summer holidays are also a time to catch up on studies. Revise and prepare for the next year.
Pre plan the day: Kids need your time and attention and seeing you at home they crave it even more. Plan your day such that you have time for your kids to do activities or play with them. Vacations are a time to bond with your kids, be their teacher and teach them new and creative things.
Free Play corner: While we are working, we want the kids to entertain themselves. Set up a small corner in the house for them for a free play time. If kids have their own room, set up a teepee or a doll house. Make sure to keep their toys where they can reach and play while you are busy.
But even the most creative parent runs out of ideas, so we have BYJU’s Summer Kid Camp, a virtual camp where BYJU’s suggests everyday activity for parents to do with their kids.
