Summer Time Fun with Performing Arts in Cardiff

Summer Time Fun? For many parents, the prospects of the 6 weeks school holiday can prove pretty daunting! Most children thrive when they have a predictable structure and routine. The freedom of the summer holidays can be both freeing and overwhelming.

Here are 3 tips to help you embrace the summer!

  • Create your own routine – children tend to love chores! Now this can be both a blessing and a curse as I often need to re doo my children’s attempt at helping around the house. However, it’s important for them to feel a sense of achievement and responsibility for their environment.

  • Make a list – sit with them on their first day and make a list of free/cheap things that they would like to do over the 6 weeks. These could include a play date with a friend, swimming in the sea, climbing a mountain, seeing a waterfall, going on the train etc.

  • Consider a summer camp/or activity club. At Jigsaw Cardiff, we always run a week long summer camp in Howells school the 2nd week of the summer holidays. For me as a mum, this breaks the holidays into 2 sections – the week before summer school and the time after it.

        If your child has a particular interested in something, why not see if there are any summer holiday workshop classes running to keep them entertained and give you some much needed head space.
