Summer with Kids

Summer can be quite stressful for a lot of parents because aside from the usual stuff we need to accomplish, we know we also need to spend time with our kids. So here are some tips or reminders so we can enjoy our summer even more!

Summer Tip #1: Be safe!

This is probably the most important tip anyone could give when it comes to doing stuff with kids. Because kids (especially the younger ones) can easily get carried away when having fun, it’s up to us parents to make sure they’re safe from suspicious persons, moving vehicles, and even the heat of the sun.

So be sure to keep an eye on them whenever you’re having some outdoor fun, and don’t forget to put on some sunscreen!

Summer Tip #2: Be healthy!

Most kids spend a lot of time outdoors in summer. Finding an outdoor hobby for your kids to partake in during Summer can be a great way for them to fully embrace the warm weather. With that in mind, you may want to look at ways to find tennis lessons near houston, as playing tennis could be a great way for them to release all of their energy. While being active and getting some sunshine is good for us, try to avoid being under direct sunlight from 11am to around 3pm or 4pm. Too much exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can damage a person’s skin.

Another important thing! Don’t forget to make your kids drink lots of water! You don’t want them to get dehydrated!

Summer Tip #3: Be creative!

Playing games in the park, heading to the beach or the water park, camping or hiking aren’t the only activities you can do in summer. There are tons of things to do at home that can also be a lot of fun for you and your kids.

Try preparing a meal with your kids as sous chefs. Rearrange or decorate your rooms. Create a project for your lawn, backyard or patio. Ask your kids what they want to do. Just be open and you’re sure to have a swell time!

Summer Tip #4: Be cool!

After you’re done with all your activities for the day, wouldn’t it be nice to relax and just chill in your room? Don’t have an air conditioner? Haier has a number of portable air conditioners that are so easy to set up. So easy I set everything up on my own! Ha! Now we can enjoy taking naps in the middle of a hot day! THis may be especially important for those in cities where temperatures are in the 90s-100s!

  5. I don’t know what rock I’ve been living under, but I had never heard of a free-standing portable air conditioner before! I could definitely use one of those! Also, I really like your ideas of creative activities for the kids.

  6. Hi, how are you Today? I hope you are Well! I Really enjoy your Blogs and this one Really Touched Home with Me for the Summer Time! I do not have kids of my own but My Nephews & My Niece Spend a Great bit of time with us during the Summer! It’s So Hard to get them Involved in anything Outdoors or Anything that Involves Physical Exercise! What is it with kids these Days? All they want to do is Stay Inside on their Video Games or Computers! They Might as well be at their own House if that’s all they want to do! What happened to Playing Outside, Going Swimming, Going to a Movie or a Park? When I was Younger I Was Never Bored & I played Outside with Friends or if I was alone I used My Imagination & Got Creative! I Never had all the Forms of Technology that they have But I don’t Feel Like I missed Out on Anything b/c I was Happy! Anyways, Thanks for the Helpful Tips and Who Knows Maybe I can Come Up with Something Interesting for them to do! Thanks & God Bless! Jana Williams

  12. Thank you for the great tips! Sometimes I can get caught up with things but this just reminds me on the important it is to remember all the tips you shared. Thanks!

  13. These are some great tips! I don’t have kids myself but I need to keep my nieces busy when they are over, which is often.

  14. thank you for those tips, i have 2 adorable kids, and summer here in the Philippines is so hot, like drought! but to cool things down just managed my temper, and a little bit of help with the air conditioner!

  15. These are great tips and I could really use that portable air conditioner. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Great ideas. Summer can be fun but also long for kids that have no other children to play with in the neighborhood. We enjoy a lot of the free events in the community, Upick farms and of course the library. Thanks for your additional ideas.

  17. Hard to believe it’s almost time for back to school! Just a few more weeks of keeping my niece & nephews entertained during the days their parents work, lol!

  18. It is so true in the Summer Time in having a good working fan or air conditioner. I like spending time outdoors in the Summer with my family. We like going to the lake and swimming. But when we are home. staying cool is so important. This Hair Conditioner sounds great.

  19. My 14 year old brother only likes to be on the laptop and play station. My mom works so she can’t be taking him anywhere except maybe on the weekends.
    Hopefully next year he can be in a basketball team or something. :/

  20. Too much sun exposure is my most frequent concern, because skin cancer runs in our family and burns aren’t fun anyway.

  21. Sunscreen and staying hydrated are so important. When kids are busy having fun they often don’t want to stop. Not even for a drink of water.

  22. I’ve noticed the best way to enjoy the Summer with your kids is to just slow down and relax the time you have. Stressing the kids out by trying to fit in every little thing can be just as bad as not doing anything at all. Give them time to rest and appreciate their time off and it will be fantastic.

  27. I personally do not have any kids, my kids are of the fur kind; however, I do watch my friends’ children sometimes and these are some great tips! Thank you!

  28. Summer is here once again and it is so hot and humid here in Florida. I will be checking out this portable air conditioner for our Florida Room Thank you so much for sharing
