  • Having fun at home There are a number of things that kids can do at home to keep themselves entertained during the summer holidays, such as playing games, reading books, doing arts and crafts, or watching movies.

Here are some additional tips for entertaining kids on summer holidays:

  • Plan ahead: Make a list of activities that you would like to do with your kids, and then book tickets or make reservations in advance. This will help to ensure that you have something to do every day, and that you don't have to spend time faffing around when you could be having fun.


  • Be flexible: Things don't always go according to plan, so be prepared to be flexible. If it's raining, for example, you might need to change your plans and go to an indoor activity instead.


  • Make it a family affair: Get the whole family involved in the activities, so that everyone can have fun. This could include things like going on bike rides, playing games in the garden, or having a picnic in the park.


  • Don't forget the basics: Make sure that your kids have plenty of sunscreen, water, and snacks when they're out and about. You might also want to pack a first-aid kit in case of any accidents.


I hope this helps!
