It’s June! If not already, school for most will soon be out, & summer will officially begin within a matter of weeks! Unbelievable right? Well, I have some great ideas to help keep the kiddies busy. Enjoy! 😊

 

 

Scavenger Hunt

“I spy with my little eye”… there’s nothing like a good game of clue, or a scavenger hunt. Kids love the chance to look for various treasures & prizes with a few fun clues to lead them.  It’s an amazing way to create a fun activity for all to participate in, & can be used to create healthy competition between campers.

 

 

Rope Swings

This is an oldie, but a goodie form of fun. Rope swings have been around forever, but I assure you, the fun remains the same! Usually, you can also increase or decrease, this ultra-thrilling experience to fit your liking, by using different platform heights to swing high over bodies of water ending in a safe yet thrilling splash!

 

 

Mega Slip-N-Slide

Slip n Slide

A mega slip n slide isn’t like any other slip n slide you’ve seen before. You can transform any hill or steady slope from ordinary to extraordinary, by adding tarps and other slick materials. (within safety measures) This slip n slide can be as long and as wide as desired which ensures maximum fun for campers.

 

 

Extreme Zipline

Zip Lining

Now, this is for the brave! Extreme caution goes without saying with this sport, but if done safely…is nothing short of a blast!  Thrill seekers travel all over the world to take part in zip lining experiences. Zip lines are a great way to see the campground’s surroundings. This is a surefire way to get campers involved and ready for an exciting ride. 🙂

 

 

Horseback Riding

I’ve always been a great fan of horses growing up myself, so this would be an amazing adventure for most kids.  Horseback riding is a great way to experience the outdoors & ones own surroundings. Interacting with animals in a hands on way makes horseback riding a unique way to experience nature.

 

Awesome huh? Now go & get the kiddies signed up! Enjoy your weekend, “Toodles!”😀

Fun Friday – 7 Ways Children Can Teach You To Be Happy

I can so relate ! I get this question a lot as well 🙂

 

 

“Why do you work with children? I couldn’t do that, they’re such hard work.”

This is something people say to me when I tell them I’m a childminder.  My simple answer is that they make me happy. They do. There is nothing more innocent or honest than a young child. Luckily all of my mindees have good lives and seem to be genuinely happy little people. Their happiness rubs off on me. So why are children so happy and can we adults learn from them?  Here are a few things I’ve observed that I believe help children stay happy .

  1. THEY’RE MORE SELFISH

Most young children want what’s best for them.  They believe that getting what they want is far more important than anything else. Empathy generally doesn’t kick in with children until they’re around 4 or 5, and older children still have difficulty in being empathetic. Empathy is obviously…
