Perran Springs Holiday Park
If you’re stuck for something to do with the kids over the summer and money is an issue, why not consider picking up a couple of fun little toys or games from the likes of Poundland and making up a treasure or scavenger hunt. It’s a great way for kids to spend time with siblings and friends and you can make the hunt as easy or challenging as you want. It’s a great, fun way to keep the kids entertained so you can do housework, cook dinner or just take some time out for yourself.
Ever hear of geocaching? A lot of people surprisingly haven’t! It’s a great activity that millions of people around the world take part in every year and includes simply using a GPS device to locate caches around the world – including in your local area or an area where you may be visiting. Caches can have any manner of cool thing inside of them that you can take with you but etiquette dictates you leave something as well for the next player so be sure you go with something small to swap.
Kids Day Camp
Day camps are a fantastic way for kids to have fun over the summer months and is the perfect way for parents to still manage to work without needing to figure out childcare. Day camps can come in all varieties and can include woodworking, painting, making different crafts and sports. You can also consider sending the kids to overnight camps – often a popular option with many as well.
With so many great ways to spend time with the kids without necessarily needing to spend a huge amount of money or go anywhere, there’s no end to the great summer potential every single year has. What will you choose this summer?
