only is summer a school-free time for many children, but it can also
mean warm weather, long car trips, digging up lots of beach sand, and
long empty hours to lollygag (my favorite pastime).
we often think of creative activities for kids as easel painting or
drawing, getting outdoors fills children with new ideas, an imaginative
spirit, and a thirst for life that will give children fodder for their
ideas and art making.
1. At The Beach:While many parents look forward to beach trips as an opportunity to relax while the kids play (me, me!!), you can take comfort in the fact that while children play they are filling their brains with the sensory experiences of playing with sand, architectural processes of building castles, and physics lessons in how waves and tides move.
2. During Long Car Trips:Are you dreading planning a long car trip this summer? While DVD’s do wonders for keeping backseat bickering at bay, hands-on activities not only keep the mind active, but they can encourage long, uninterrupted spells of creativity as well.
Travel documents and tickets(if mandate), cash wallets, Accessories, coolers, sun protection creams, swim wears, slippers, towels, dresses, Big umbrella or a camping tent (in case of a rain or hot sun) Note: Try our suitable products on costway as well, books, toiletries, sports material, speakers, camera(for recording your favorite moments) ,portable coolers, foods and some cold drinks.
3. At The Campground:Getting outdoors and taking adventures do wonders for eliciting creative thinking. If you don’t have any grand plans for camping this summer, not to worry because you can always pitch a Tent in the backyard and make sun-baked s’ mores (via Kids Stuff World) on a hot day with creature comforts not too far away. Mmm
4. Around the Neighborhood:Speaking of scavenger hunts, you don’t have to go very far to find cool things to look at. Just walk out your front door with a camera and you’re ready to take a rainbow scavenger hunt or any other sort of scavenger hunt you can dream up.

Have you ever been geocaching? When geocaching was first introduced back in 2001, I was one of the first people to go out and buy a GPS.

And then there’s the DIY Art Camp. If the weather is nice, why not invite your friends to join you for some art-making at the park? A couple summers ago we hosted a summer art afternoon for some friends. After a picnic (kids need fuel for the brains), we made sand paintings, paper bag crowns, and summer fireworks tote bags.
7. On the Lake:Put engineering skills to work by making your own boats like these from NurtureStore, and then test them in the lake, pool, or stream.

8. On the Garden:Whether you have a large plot of land or a tiny patio, a short walk out your own front door into the fresh air gives children a low-threshold opportunity to get close to nature. You could try making your own Water Wall, planting a Garden with the Kids, easy outdoor water painting, set up an impromptu garden art studio, or make fairy gardens for your resident gnomes and keepers of pixie dust.
