Let’sLearn Cooking

This is such a cool way to bond with your child and teach him about cooking, an essential skill that everybody needs. Also the measuring process of baking is good to teach the child about different units of measurement which is important for mathematics. Furthermore the entire process of making something delicious from scratch is a lot of fun.

Time to Get a New Hobby

Hobbies are so important for the mental development of a child. Different hobbies have different benefits for example by learning to play the guitar the child’s ear will develop to hear great music. Painting gives your child the ability to put their thoughts into a form of a picture. In other words it helps the child to express themselves. It also helps the creative juices flowing and gives a break from their daily academics.

Be Active

Whether it is cycling, biking or hiking try out new ways to get some physical exercise in your child. Nowadays due to IPad and IPhones, children tend to stay indoors and play games. In the long run it is really bad for your children. Chances are your child will not want to come to the gym with you. Whatever it is make sure it is fun.


Such an essential skill that we lack nowadays. On the first day of the vacation take your child to the local library. Help him pick out a book or two something that he likes. Help him set a goal to read at least 20 minutes a day and to finish the book by the end of the holiday. This is will be immensely helpful for the child.

Let Him Have Some Fun

Also make sure you don’t be too harsh on the kid. He really has had a long academic year. Let him let loose a bit and do something that he likes. If possible join him in those for example both of you can play some video games together. This will also help your bond with your child grow stronger.

Holiday season is a fun time that everyone waits for but by making a nice routine you can be sure that your child will both enjoy and learn this summer.
