Summer Activities For Kids

The start of the long lazy days are about to come as the school-year ends in just a matter of less than two months.  Our children will naturally get bored of the lengthy school break, so instead of consuming their time in front of the computer or watching tv, we can hone their respective unique talents and sharpen their creative imaginations by enrolling them in children’s summer  camps, workshops and other enjoyable summer activities to occupy their idle time.

Here is a list of suggested summer activities that your kids may enjoy.

  • Art and painting workshop like acrylic painting, mixed media collage painting, shirt painting, oil painting in canvass, paper maché figure sculpture, etc.
  • Baking and Cooking
  • Sports clinic program that offers courses on badminton, basketball, bowling, chess, football, gymnastics, ice skating, karatedo, lawn tennis, table tennis, swimming, taekwondo, and volleyball.
  • Music lessons like singing and voice lesson, guitar, violin or drum sessions
  • Dancing class on ballet, jazz, and modern dance
  • Acting workshops
  • Gym  exercises

Aside from keeping them busy in their preferred summer camp or workshop, this is also the time to teach them how to do some house chores and the best time to plan for a grand family getaway.
