Here Is How to Entertain Your Children – and Keep Them Cool – Over the Summer Break

Not only do we take pride in providing our residents with high-quality living Augusta Commons Apartments in Marietta, Georgia, but we also believe that it is important to stay in touch. With our weekly tips and advice, we encourage you to stay connected with us.

Speaking of tips and advice, all of us in Georgia know that the heat during the summer can be overbearing and even overwhelming. For this reason, you might be wondering how on Earth you’ll keep your kids entertained during a long break from school. Well, we’re here with a few great ideas! From hosting a dance party to writing a good, old-fashioned letter, here are four ways to keep your children occupied from the comfort of your apartment home during the summer lull.

Have a Dance Party.

Does your little one love music? Allow them to play their favorite tunes, while the family engages in a good, old-fashioned dance party! Choose a playlist together, blast the music, and let them shake the sillies out. It wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, if you joined in, either!

Read Out Loud.

We think of reading as a solitary pursuit, but the truth is some kids never get too old to find pleasure in being read to. And, no, you don’t have to read just children’s books! Ask your child to pick out a book and snuggle up on the couch together for a read-a-thon.

Play Would You Rather?

Kids love this-or-that games! Work their decision-making skills when you put together a simple, kid-friendly game of Would You Rather? Write tough this-or-that questions, like “Would you rather have super speed or super strength?” on some paper, draw a question from the jar, and take turns answering.

Write an Old-Fashioned Letter.

The art of letter writing is a dying one, but you can keep it going a little longer by encouraging your kids to send a message to a loved one. Little ones can join in the fun by drawing in a postcard or greeting card. This is a great way to keep family members close and more connected, especially if you’re in different states.
