How to keep your children entertained during the summer holiday

How to keep your children entertained during the summer holiday

If you struggle to keep your kids entertained during the summer holidays, here are some activities they can enjoy at home. 

  • Board games

    Stock up on their favorite board games. A must have is “Bank El-Hazz,” the Arabic edition of monopoly. It is a game that consumes a lot of time so it will keep them busy for longer — and isn’t that every parent’s dream? 

  • Beach day 

    A day by the beach is always a child’s favorite. Saudi Arabia’s Farasan Island offers exciting boat rides, water sports and diving experiences for a day trip that’s a little different. 

  • Arts and crafts 

    Whether it’s painting, stitching a dress for dolls or creating objects with play-dough, it’s time to let your children’s creativity run wild.

  • Baking 

    Get your children to help you bake fun-shaped cookies, colorful cupcakes or sprinkled donuts during their summer break.

  • Summer camps 

    There are a multitude of summer camps for your children to enjoy this summer. Kids in Jeddah can opt for FasTrackids, while Bounce offers a summer-long schedule in Jeddah and Riyadh.

  • Reading 

    Not all children enjoy reading, so make it fun and act out the stories. The Arabic book “Kalila wa Dimna” has a collection of fables that your child can perform to add a little drama to staying at home.
