How To Keep The Kids Entertained This Summer With Sunnylife

Not sure what to do with the kids all summer? It’s tricky, we know. Suddenly you’re expected to be a full-time chef, cleaner, entertainer, audience member and driver amongst other things, trying to balance all your chores with keeping the little ones busy. When you’ve run out of films to watch and you can face another batch of homemade cupcakes, Sunnylife is here with fresh ideas to keep your children occupied and entertained this summer. With toys and homeware to help facilitate fun family times, here are some suggestion of summer children’s activities with Sunnylife. 

#1 Set Up An Art Project 

Need a couple of quiet hours to get things done? Set your kids off with a challenge to test their creativity. With the Sunnylife underwater camera, there’s no limit to their imagination or chance of your camera getting damaged, letting you get on with your day while they try their hand at being pro photographers. Set them off with a brief or a challenge to capture the best images they can and introduce them to the forgotten joy of proper film photography as they’ll get to see their artwork as properly developed photographs. How about setting up a paddling pool with some Sunnylife floats or decorations and challenging them to take their best underwater shots of tropical scenes in your back garden? That’s sure to keep them entertained and may even unlock a new passion! 



#2 Build Your Own Film Night Fort 

If the weather isn’t on your side, team up with the kids to turn your living room into a cosy retreat. Far better than any leg numbing cinema seats, gather up duvets, blankets and twinkly lights to create your own fort and settle in for a day of your favourite films. With all the excitement of summer, both you and your little ones could use the time to relax, so the best thing you can do to keep them entertained is to just do nothing. Stock up on their favourite snacks, assemble the fort, make the hot chocolates and hibernate on rainy days.

#3 Pack a Picnic 

While the kids are at home, take the opportunity to get the extra helping hands in the kitchen. Keep the kids entertained this summer by getting them introduced to the kitchen basics and teach them how to make some simple recipes beyond cake kits. From pasta salads and roasted veg, to mini quiches or pies, turn them into mini chefs for the summer. Then pack it all up in Sunnylife’s cooler sounds bag and head out for a picnic with your favourite soundtrack. With a morning spent slaving away in the kitchen and a nice dose of fresh air and fun at the picnic, by the end of the day, your little ones are sure to sleep well after being worn out.  

#4 Holiday at home 

If the weather allows, turn your back garden into an all-inclusive resort. Get the paddling pool out, decorate with fun Sunnylife inflatables, lay down your beach town and make some mocktails for a 5-star experience at home. Without all the stress of packing or travel, with a bit of sun, you can enjoy a poolside day to keep the kids entertained and let you relax a little.  



#5 Stretch Your Legs 

The most obvious suggestion, but finding a good walking trail is the easiest and cheapest kids activity around. From riverside strolls to rambles over fields, or even a seaside trip if you’re lucky enough to live by the coast, there’s a whole hidden world out there to explore. Chances are there are secret treasures hidden just outside your front door, so do some research, pack some water and snacks, put on your sturdy shoes and get the kids out in nature.
