Keep Tweens Occupied This Summer

As your child continues their vacation from school, it is important to keep them occupied. We made a list of a few activities that can occupy your child.

Summer Camp

Summer camps are a great way for tweens to socialize with other kids their age as well as have fun. If your child is interested in any sports, enroll them in a sports camp. This will grow their interest in the sport as well as allow them to become more dedicated to their passion.  Camps are a great way to allow tweens to socialize with others their age and make new friends in the process.

Sports

Sports are a great way to keep your child fit as well as socially active. Your tween can make new friends through sports as well as become better in something they love to do. Sports give children a chance to develop their skills and hopefully move on to a higher level of playing. It is great for your children to be enrolled into summer leagues and clinics to help them practice their skills. Also, summer leagues and clinics help your child determine if they like a particular sport and if it is something they would like to continue to pursue.

Hobbies

Like summer camps, hobbies can also allow your tween to become dedicated to an activity or hobby. From crafts to collecting, your tween can find the perfect activity for themselves. Hobbies keep your child occupied and out of any trouble they could be getting into. Hobbies generate creativity in the brain, allowing your child to express themselves. This Pinterest page gives tweens a great list of fun, creative activities to do in their free time.

Staying Active

Staying active is a perfect way for children to stay healthy and in shape. Its important for children to start becoming active at an early age to avoid and prevent problems such as obesity, cancers, disorders, etc. Staying active can keep your tween preoccupied and make sure they generate a healthy lifestyle for them to develop later in life.

Fashion

Tweens are becoming more and more into fashion as time is progressing. Celebrities are one of the major reasons for this growing trend. With tween celebrities rising in popularity, tween fashion has grown with it. This is enticing all tweens to imitate their idols and buy these types of clothing. With this growing trend, tweens from all over can start to follow clothing lines and even try to make their own clothing in their free time. This can determine if your tween will become interested in the fashion industry. Little Fashions Boutique has a great blog that discusses all various tween brands and tween dresses.

Make sure when deciding any of these activities that your child is okay with whatever you decide. If you push your tween to pursue something they are not interested in, they are not going to have fun doing the activity and will want to nag you to let them do something else, which you do NOT want.
