Hoping to Keep Your Kids Entertained Without the Summer Heat? Here Are Some Suggestions

It’s always helpful to learn something new! At The Hamptons at East Cobb Apartments in Marietta, Georgia, we love to provide you with fun, thought-provoking tidbits that will make you reflect on different aspects of life.  

If you find yourself reflecting on summer break, for instance, there’s no denying that the summer heat can be overbearing for many in Georgia. The problem is that you have a houseful of children to entertain, despite this fact. So, you might be wondering how you’ll keep your them occupied and happy during a long break from school. Luckily enough for our residents, we have some excellent suggestions in mind! 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 hottest months in GA.

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.
