You always have fun with your kids

Today is the last day of school for my kids before the start of summer.
Not
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).

While
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.

Plan and make arrangements:
Start making your checklist before packing. Think about the necessary items, your family and friends may need. 
My advisable and essential things would be:

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

5. On the Hiking Trail:And then we can always kick scavenger hunts up a notch!

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 my husband laughed at me. We planted one of the oldest caches in Southern California and then the first cache in Indonesia, and wouldn’t you know that they’re both still there!
6. At the Park: 6Did you know that climbing trees can support creative thinking?

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.

10. On an Adventure:Have you ever organized or gone on a mystery trip? They’re so fun, and can make even the most ordinary outing an adventure.

(sorry I couldn’t help myself).
