Soon, the kids are going to spend more time at home given that school’s out. While it could have been a norm that school holidays call for vacations overseas, this time around things could be a little tighter at home. Are you dreading to tell them that there won’t be any big holiday this year and seeing that big smile turn upside down? Don’t worry! We have a holiday plan for you, and it’s called ‘Around the World in 5 Days!’
We bet you guessed that it involves travelling around the world, but we aren’t giving away any flight tickets yet. Sorry! We do have a ‘travel itinerary’ printed out for you though, and all you need to do is apply for leave so you can join in too!
Ultimate DIY Holiday Itinerary
Rumble in the Jungle
You don’t have to worry about bumping into wild animals but do pack up for a day out. That means sunblock, cap, extra t-shirts, towel, some light food and lots of water. After breakfast, pack for a picnic lunch by a waterfall. Sandwiches, noodles and sausages are some food that’s easy to make the day before. Splash around in the cool water and then enjoy a nice lunch by the waterfall.
When you’re home, continue with the jungle theme by pitching a real tent or making a make-shift one from bed sheets or curtains either in your living room. Dim the lights, play some jungle sounds from the Internet, tell stories or sing songs over a mug of warm chocolate drink.
You never know, but there’s a lot to discover in your garden. Give your kids a pair of garden gloves, a plastic bag and magnifying glass and let’s head out to the garden! Don’t have a garden? A park will do just fine. The day before print out a selection of plants, fruits, animals and insects like birds, butterflies, ants, spiders, snails and more, and put your kids through a treasure hunt to locate these items. It’s a great way to teach them more about nature and learning how to take care of it too. Remember to bring along water bottles for everyone and stay hydrated! Once you’re back home, end the day by planting a mixture of fruit, herb and vegetable seeds in pots. Watch them grow and enjoy the fruits of your mini vacation!
Water Park Theme
Water parks can cost a water bomb. There’s the entry tickets and when you get in, you have to foot out more for food, float rentals and souvenirs cause you know the kids will definitely want that dolphin plushy or a balloon at least. Create your own water park at home by buying an inflatable pool, couple of water blasters, some pool noodles and you’re all set! Slather on some sunblock and run out in your swimsuits. When it’s lunch time, serve up hot dogs, milkshakes and ice-cream. What a treat indeed and you didn’t even have to leave your house!
