June 1 is Children’s Day. And, if you are a parent, then why not spend this day with a child? He’s just about to start his holidays, and before heading off to summer camp or to grandma’s, why not celebrate the holiday together? We offer several interesting and educational ways to spend Children’s Day with your child.
Picnic in nature
If you are lucky with the weather, there is nothing to stay at home! Take a blanket, sandwiches and drinks and go to the nearest park. You can relax and sunbathe, and the children can run in nature and play active games.
If the weather is sunny and calm, and there is no wind at all, then you may well play badminton. The main thing is to stock up on shuttlecocks. The Joerex 6003 badminton set will take care of that. It includes 3 shuttlecocks, 2 rackets and a handy carrying case. The rackets are made of metal, while the shuttlecocks are made of nylon with a cork top. For them, by the way, there is a separate case.
Badminton is a game for two, but three or four people can play ball. Volleyball or football, the choice is yours. Indigo offers many different sizes of soccer balls, and a volleyball ball can be chosen from the Gala collection. It is not necessary to acquire professional accessories, because just a ball is enough for a simple game.
It is important not to forget that during outdoor activities, especially on a hot day, it is important to drink more. So don’t forget your thermos. A thermos from Xiaomi Viomi Vacuum Cup will allow you to keep the temperature of drinks and conveniently pour them into mugs.
And most importantly, if you go on a picnic, do not forget a good mood.
Game day at home
If the weather is bad and you have to spend the day at home, this does not mean that you need to wander around the corners. After all, there is a great alternative — board games. You can invite your child’s friends or just play with your family. Fortunately, various games are quite enough for a company of any size. Even if it’s too early for a child to play games like Mafia, Jenga or Monopoly are good alternatives. Both games are in the Hasbro collection. “Jenga” will suit a more active company, and “Monopoly” — for a calmer one. And another educational game for older children is “Taboo”. The idea is based on a game of words, only they have to be guessed by synonyms and associations.
Of course, you can always play chess or dominoes. These games are in the Djeco collection and are available to everyone.
Another interesting option for the company is the constructor. Choose a large building set from the Lego collection and spend a whole day building it! This is an incredible treat for patient children and adults.
Regardless of the weather, but depending on the mood, you can arrange a cultural program for the children. For example, plan an interesting educational walk with visits to museums, theaters or city attractions. Surely in your city there is some kind of museum, a trip to which you have always put off. So why not finally implement this plan? You will be able to learn something new yourself, and of course, pass the knowledge on to your children. This will allow you to combine business with pleasure and not waste the day.
Surely you want to leave pleasant memories of such a day, so you can take an action camera with you, for example Prolike 4K. By capturing a walk on video, you can create a fascinating video that captures all your adventures. By the way, the very process of editing a video can be a great project that you can do with your children. So you will have a chance to combine several different activities at once! And each will be very exciting.
Some of us specifically organize movie nights with friends. Well, in our time it is quite possible to devote the whole day to watching a movie. If you have favorite movie masterpieces that you dreamed of one day showing your children, then perhaps this could be a great plan for Children’s Day. Grab your list, stock up on delicious snacks, and get going! Someone will want to revise the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, someone will prefer Star Wars, and someone will want to revise Disney cartoons or old Soviet cartoons. We have already noted that a mandatory part of the movie day is delicious snacks. It may be the usual popcorn, but it’s better to come up with something useful for the child’s body. What could be healthier than homemade yogurt? The yogurt maker BRAND 4002 is designed for 12 jars of 200 g each and is equipped with an electronic timer that will inform you when the dessert is ready. You can add any fruit and create your own unique yogurt flavors. By the way, in between films, you can cook yogurt with the whole family, because a change of activity and a new skill never hurt.
Walk on a skateboard, bike or scooter
Some families prefer active, even very active holidays. For such, we have another interesting option — a family ride on bicycles, boards or scooters. It all depends on what type of transport you and your children prefer. And if they don’t know how to ride anything yet, then it’s time to learn. You can start, for example, with a small skateboard. A simple SC Boots model will be more than enough. It is suitable for children from 6 years old and can withstand weight up to 100 kg. Such a skateboard provides a smooth movement, it is resistant to damage and is optimal for riding in parks and city streets.
The scooter rides almost the same, but in addition to balancing, you can control it with the steering wheel. To get started, you can pick up a children’s or teenage model from TechTeam. These scooters are comfortable and easy to handle. They are available in different colors and are great for asphalt and park paths.
Active recreation in the park or on a specially equipped area will bring pleasure to children, and adults will give an extra opportunity to warm up and go in for sports. So this pastime will be very useful for all family members.
Take the whole family to the pool or water park
If the vacation is still far away, and you are already drawn to the sea, then for June 1 there is an excellent solution — a pool or a water park. At the same time, it’s worth going there with the whole family to teach those who don’t know how to swim, jump from a springboard or ride sliders and slides. You will get great pleasure, you can chat with children and splash in the water. Swimming is also very healthy, so all family members will benefit. And a charge of vivacity is enough to hold out until a vacation and a trip to the sea or to the river in the country. If you want to diversify your trip, it is quite possible to bring a Wave Rider snorkeling kit, or pool fins (for example, Large Swim for adults or for children). You will get a completely new swimming experience and perhaps new skills or a desire to scuba dive. Well, if you are not planning a vacation yet, and you are going to the cottage on June 1, then take the Intex Easy Set inflatable pool with you. Of course, it is inferior in size to public pools, but on a hot day you can cool off in clean water and get pleasant emotions. And that’s exactly what a family vacation is all about.
Surely you also have your own ideas of how you can spend an exciting and useful day in the company of your own children. If you are still unsure, ask the children what they would like to do. But for the rest, hurry up, because this year June 1 falls on Sunday, so you have a unique chance to celebrate the holiday with your closest and dearest people.
