How to make the most of the summer holidays

How to make the most of the summer holidays

Summer is more than a season—it’s a lifestyle! With longer days and warmer weather, we often feel more energised, adventurous and in the mood to socialise.

The summer holidays will be gone before you know it, so make the most of your time off with these four family-friendly activities.

Take up a new hobby

When is the last time you tried something new? Taking up a new hobby is the perfect way to kick-start your motivation. Hobbies like pottery, painting or cooking can often be calming, while tennis or mini golf can get you moving. Whether you opt for a solo-activity or a hobby for the whole family, finding new reasons to get up off the couch is a great way maximise your summer.

Do the back-to-school shop

Some summer activities are inevitable, like the yearly back-to-school shop. Make it a fun activity for everyone in the family by getting the kids involved. They can help write their own lists and decorate them afterwards. Plan ahead so you know exactly what you need to save you making multiple trips.

Get outdoors

There’s no better time than summertime to explore the outdoors. With beautiful beaches and picture-perfect parks, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to outdoor activities. Coastal hikes, park picnics, and ocean swims are all excellent ways to get out and enjoy the summer sunshine. You can even make it a family goal to discover a new beach, hike, or park every weekend to ensure you’re getting a healthy dose of fresh air and sunlight. Just don’t forget your sunscreen!

Lucky dip to choose a family activity

Struggling to agree on a weekend family activity? Make a game out of choosing! Ask each family member to write down an activity of their choice, then draw the activity at random from a hat—the kids will love the excitement and surprise! If you’re stuck for ideas, mini-golf and karaoke are always winners.
