If you’re a parent you’re probably wondering how to keep the kids entertained this summer. Back in the ’70s we’d be herded outdoors at the crack of dawn with jam butties crammed into our pockets, returning home for tea filthy and exhausted from playing out all day. It was great fun. But if you let little kids play out all day these days, you’d probably face charges of neglect!
Luckily there’s loads of brilliant free and cheap stuff going on right through the season. Things like festivals, fun fairs and outdoor concerts, summer fetes, craft and vintage fayres, agricultural shows, street performance, exhibitions, steam shows, parades, Gay Pride celebrations, boot fairs, free sports events and museums are a lifesaver. Plus there’s beaches, mountains and forests to picnic and play in. And animal farms to enjoy.
But you can’t go out every day. So what about the times you’re stuck indoors? Children grow up alarmingly fast and grow out of their toys equally quickly. The toys you bought at Christmas might have already reached the end of their educational and entertainment life.
There’s always cheap creative things to do like drawing, painting and colouring, collages and cooking. You can put the tent up in the garden for them to play in. Kids love that! Or let them build indoor dens with furniture and bedding. But boredom is inevitable at one point or another. And a few carefully-chosen new toys might be the only way to save your sanity!
