SUMMER ACTIVITIES

Summertime, kids, and picnics are meant to go together. Having a picnic doesn’t have to be reserved
for a day out at the beach or park. Kids love to eat outside, especially if it means they
don’t have to stop playing to come inside and get cleaned up.

Summer Activities - Tips, Ideas and Activities


Put on a Play

Kids love to dress-up in costumes or other articles of clothing that aren’t their own. Instead of putting away the Halloween costumes each year, leave them out in a play chest to be used year round. Whether you have lots of Halloween costumes or old clothes that you don’t wear anymore instead of getting rid of them let your kids have them. You will be amazed and pleasantly surprised at the imaginative play that will result from playing dress-up. Encourage them to get dressed-up and to put on a play in their costumes. Invite the neighborhood kids over to participate or just watch the show. Put on a Play

Sun Art

This is a craft where the sun will do most of the work. You will need to find the sunniest
spot in your house or yard and it will take some time – at least three hours of full
sunlight. You will need brightly colored construction paper and various shaped objects.

Lay the piece of paper in the sunny location first and then place the objects on the page.
Be sure to leave space around each object, they should not be touching. Items such as
leaves, coins, utensils, or anything else with an interesting shape can be used. Then you
have to wait, but it will be worth it. Sun Art

Gardening for Kids

Here is a summer activity that can last the entire summer. Helping the kids grow their
own garden is fun and they will be able to reap the benefits before school starts again by
harvesting their own vegetables.

This activity will require some pre-planning and most likely should be started before
school is out. The best way to start a garden for children is to germinate the seeds
indoors. After it is decided what type of vegetables to grow, get the plants ready inside
so they have a better chance of success when they are moved to the outdoors. Gardening for Kids

A Journal for all Ages

By encouraging children to keep a journal they will benefit from writing down their
emotions and what they have been doing all summer. They will also improve their
writing skills and be ready for that assignment that is given out at the beginning of every
school year - an essay on what they did for the summer break.

The journal itself can be a store bought notebook, an actual journal or some loose-leaf
paper bound together. The form isn’t what is important; it is getting the children in the
habit of writing in it every day. This won’t be for all children but those that show an
interest should be encouraged to develop a routine with it. A Journal for all Ages

Bird Feeders

Kids are naturally attracted to animals and will love the birds that come to eat off of their homemade bird feeders. The following instructions are for a very simple bird feeder that can be made again and again. Once you put out food for birds and they start coming on a regular basis you should continue to feed them as they are rely on the feeders as a food source. Bird Feeders

The Climate of the Philippines is either tropical rainforest, tropical savanna or tropical monsoon, or humid subtropical (in higher-altitude areas) characterized by relatively high temperature, oppressive humidity and plenty of rainfall. There are two seasons in the country, the wet season and the dry season, based upon the amount of rainfall. This is dependent as well on your location in the country as some areas experience rain all throughout the year.

Based on temperature, the seven warmest months of the year are:
- from March to October; the winter monsoon brings cooler air
- from November to February
- May is the warmest month
- January, the coolest

Climate types
There are four recognized climate types in the Philippines, and they are based on the distribution of rainfall (See the Philippine Climate Map). They are described as follows:

Type I. Two pronounced season: dry from November to April and wet during the rest of the year.
Type II. No dry season with a pronounced rainfall from November to January.
Type III. Seasons are not very pronounced, relatively dry from November to April, and wet during the rest of the year.
Type IV. Rainfall is more or less evenly distributed throughout the year.

Humidity
Relative humidity is high in the Philippines. A high amount of moisture or vapor in the air makes hot temperatures feel hotter. This quantity of moisture is due to different factors - the extraordinary evaporation from the seas that surrounds the country on all sides, to the different prevailing winds in the different seasons of the year, and finally, to the abundant rains so common in a tropical country. The first may be considered as general causes of the great humidity, which is generally observed in all the islands throughout the year. The last two may influence the different degree of humidity for the different months of the year and for the different regions of the Archipelago.



Activities for All Ages

If you have children that are not very close in age or run a daycare with a wide range of ages it can be tricky to plan activities that will engage everyone. But it is not impossible. There are activities that can be planned that everyone can participate in at their own level or ones where the older children can help the younger. Don’t despair about the age gap or feel that you need to plan something different for everyone. Follow the tips below as a guide or starting point to including everyone in your summertime activities.
