by Sandeep Kumar Freelancer Article writer

Hola to the summer vacations and here comes the time when kids are at their playful best and go on building happy summer holiday memories. Work-at-home parents or stay-at-home mothers are always on the lookout for the ideas to keep their little munchkins occupied during summer vacations in some of the other fun indoor activities.

Kids can try their hands at creative craft activities, learn to bake or cook, play educational games or simply tune in to an interesting kids program TV. Most DTH operators come up with exclusive channel spread planned out for kids during summer holidays. Dish TV plans also have movies on demand for kids, craft channels, and more to keep kids busy during their summer holidays.

 Fun Kids’ Summer Activities-

 Summer Art & Craft Corner:

Set up an art space for your kids to indulge in some suffer craft activities. Let them channel their inner artist with papers, coloring books, colored pencils, and crayons. Lead the way by fusing some sort of inspiration in form of ideas and easy DIY summer craft projects. This one is sure to keep your kids hooked up for a long, long time.

 Good-old Indoor Games:

Playing indoor games is another brilliant way of keeping kids occupied during summer. Invite over your kids’ friends and have a play date with cards, board games, indoor basketball, puzzles, play tag, and many more.

Baking or No-fire Cooking:

Summers is the ideal time for kids and parents too to make them learn basic cooking, baking, or no-fire cooking lessons. Kids can make out fun fruit popsicles, baking cake using ready mixes, dishing out a sandwich, and what not. Not just that keeps them calm and occupied but also inculcates better eating habits in kids.

Movie Party:

Instead of just putting on movie for kids on TV, ask your kids’ friends to join on a movie playdate. Interestingly, each kid can get a snack and turn it into a movie potluck party. Most DTH operators have their channel list and price mentioned on their website. Just subscribe to any channel of your kids’ choice.

Writing Story Book:

While the kids are indoors and schools are shut, make sure the learning never stop for them. A great idea here is to let your kids engross in a storybook. They read story books all the time, how about getting them to write one of their own. You can give them a direction by starting the first sentence and then ask them to write the other and so on. A storybook is intellectually stimulating and something that your kids can share with their friends too.

Backyard Indoor Camping:

While it’s scorching hot outside for kids to step out for camping, why not set up an indoor camp in the backyard or anywhere in the house. Plan for a brief staycation at the tent with kids, churn out classic camping foods and keep some story books handy to read out to your kids.


If your kids have already tried out many indoor summer activities, add an interesting twist or new element to the old one to pique their interest.
