Slime has gained a lot of popularity in recent years, with viral videos all over the internet. You can find a range of DIY slime recipes online, and even edible slime!
This is sure to keep your little ones entertained all day, letting them get creative with colours and glitter. In addition to all the fun your kids will have, slime won’t get all over your house so you don’t need to worry about a big clean up either!
DIY Slip & Slide
A slip and slide can give your children hours of fun with very little effort on your part! All you need to do is get some tarp, (which you can find in almost any DIY store), grab some washing up liquid and the hose!
Cover the tarp in washing up liquid, wet the tarp and let your kids run wild!
Water Gun Painting
This one is on the messier side, but don’t let that stop the fun! All you need is a couple of canvases, or any kind of surface to paint on, small water guns and some paint. Watercolour paints usually work well for this.
Fill up a few of your small water guns with a mixture of paint and water, place your canvases on the grass and let the fun commence!
Another creative outlet for your child, but a fun activity nonetheless. You can make a whole day of this activity. You and your children could go for a nice summer walk, finding the perfect rocks to paint.
After you’ve found your rocks, you can get creative and start painting! This activity lets your child get creative and after the rock paintings are dry, they will make perfect ornaments for your home or your garden!
Go For A Picnic
This might seem like a simple or mundane activity, but a picnic can be a beautiful family activity. Take a ball along with you and let your kids play to their heart’s content!With a plethora of snacks, drinks and suncream, a picnic could be just what your kids need to get them out of the house!
