It's the perfect time to get kids off their screens and into the great outdoors. While technology has its benefits,too much screen time can take away from the joys of exploring nature and being active. Here are some exciting activities for kids that will not only keep them entertained but also reduce their screen time during this break:


1. Beach Treasure Hunt

Let's kick off the adventures with a Beach Treasure Hunt! Create a list of items for the little explorers to find on the sandy shores. From colorful seashells to unique stones, each discovery will bring excitement. Equip them with buckets or bags to collect their treasures, turning the hunt into a delightful beach escapade.


2. Nature Scavenger Hunt

Time to become nature detectives with a Nature Scavenger Hunt! Take a leisurely hike through a local park or nature reserve armed with a checklist. From different leaf types to wildlife tracks, each find will unveil the mysteries of the natural world. Watch as their curiosity sparks and their love for nature blossoms.


3. Water Balloon Games

Beat the heat with Water Balloon Games! Whether it's a refreshing game of toss or an exciting round of tag, water balloons bring endless joy. Create a backyard oasis or head to a nearby park for some wet and wild fun under the tropical sun.


4. Outdoor Art

Unleash creativity with an Outdoor Art session! Set up an art station outdoors with paints, brushes, and large sheets of paper. From painting seascapes to making leaf rubbings, let imagination run wild. This artistic journey allows kids to appreciate and express the beauty of their Caribbean surroundings.


5. Fruit & Vegetable Picking

Dive into a fruity adventure with Fruit Picking! Visit a local farm or orchard for a hands-on

experience. Let kids pluck ripe mangoes, bananas, or tomatoes straight from the trees. This not

only teaches them about where food comes from but also provides a tasty reward for their

efforts.


6. Beach Games

Time to hit the beach for a friendly game of Cricket, Badminton or Football! Set up a wicket, net, and goal, and watch the kids bat, bowl, and spike their way to fun. Team Sports promote teamwork and coordination

while adding laughter and friendly competition to the sandy shores among their family and friends.

8. Bike Riding

Let your kids catch some fresh air and evening sun on two wheels while pedaling through their neighborhood or a nearby park! Visit new parks or neighborhoods to make it fun and different. You can even consider visiting trails with a tour company that offers bike rentals and a guide. This active adventure combines, sightseeing and exercise while allowing kids to explore.


9. Star Gazing

As the sun sets, it's time for a magical experience: Star Gazing. Lay out blankets in a clear spot away from city lights. Point out constellations, watch for shooting stars, and marvel at the vastness of the universe. It's a peaceful way to end a day filled with outdoor wonders.
