Summer Activities for Children

Summer activity ideas for children

The summer holidays are the most exciting time of the year for children, it gives children the chance to play outdoors and meet friends - It gets children interacting with others which helps to build confidence and people skills. We've put together a few ideas for those of you that are running out of summer activities for your summer holidays, in the hope that we can inspire you!

Bike Rides

Taking your children out for bike rides is a fantastic way to encourage exercise and outdoor play. Family bike rides can be fun and exciting and are a great way to enjoy quality family time with no distractions. 


Take your family out for a picnic on a sunny day to a local park, using a space where your children can play and run around freely. 

Camping in your back garden

If you're on a budget or restricted to go on holidays this year, why not create your own camping holiday in your back garden! 

With a campfire and marshmallows, we can guarantee your children will love it.


Let's face it, British summer holidays can be disappointing in terms of having nice, warm weather, so rainy days why not tackle a large puzzle!

Take a trip to the beach

The beach is always a great trip for the kids, they can swim in the sea and build sandcastles and it's great for a bit of relaxation. Who doesn't love being by the beach?

Nature Walks

Walks are a great form of exercise, and it gives children the chance to explore and learn about nature. It's extremely important for children to learn about nature, especially from a young age.

Write a story

Spend some time to write a story collaboratively with your children. This is a lovely activity which not only opens your children's imagination but also expands their skills in reading and writing.
