Things To Do If You're Bored In Summer Holiday - 2 (Paddling Pools and Swimming in Natural Ponds, Playing Games, Movies, Camping in the Garden, Mini Golf / Crazy Golf, Beach Fireworks)
The summer holidays can be so much fun. I love hanging out with friends and fellow YouTubers, shopping, filming vlogs / vlogging and going on family days out, but sometimes its good to have a few ideas of what you can do / things to do (cheap / affordable and free things to do), so that you don’t get bored at home - school holidays don't need to be boring. So, I’ve made this What to Do If You Are Bored In Summer video, with some of my favourite things to do (outside & inside), including rainy days out, activities, games, summer break DIY ideas, boredom hacks, and fun activities for children / kids on vacation. This is Part 2.
PADDLING POOL / POND (WITH JJ)
Setting up a paddling pool in the garden is worth doing on a sunny day. I have one with an inflatable ring, so you just lay it on the ground, pump it up and put the hose in. In the summer holidays, we often swim in my big koi pond in my garden, which is like a natural swimming pool, although obviously ponds can be dangerous for children - don’t go drowning.
PLAYING GAMES WITH SCHOOL FRIENDS (GARDEN JENGA / FAT SUIT TWISTER)
Playing games in the garden with friends is always a real laugh. I’ve just got this giant garden Jenga tower, which adds an element of danger, because when it collapses, huge blocks of wood tumble down. I also like playing swing ball and Twister on the lawn, and sometimes Frisbee and maybe even some limbo dancing under A bamboo cane. That’s always good if you are having a summer party or barbecue.
And if it’s raining then you can always play boardgames in the house, like Monopoly, Othello, The Voting Game or Cards Against Humanity.
WATCH MOVIES / MOVIE MARATHON DURING YOUR SUMMER HOLIDAYS
Another thing to do if it’s raining is to have friends round and spend the day watching movies, maybe under duvets on the sofa with popcorn and Pringles. I recently spent two days watching Leonardo DiCaprio films with my friends, so that was a real movie marathon - we ate lots of pizza and cakes too.
CAMPING IN THE GARDEN
Camping in the garden with friends is perfect if you're bored in the summer holidays - whether it’s raining or sunny, it doesn’t matter, as long as your tent doesn’t leak. My tent comfortably sleeps four people, on two big inflatable mattresses, so it’s quite cosy, especially with fairy lights.
PLAYING MINI GOLF
Even if you're not the most sporty person, playing mini golf can be such a good way to spend an hour or two with your mates. Lots of seaside towns have great crazy golf courses close to the beach, and there are indoor mini golf attractions for rainy days.
BEACH FIREWORKS DURING THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS
During the summer break, lots of seaside towns put on free fireworks displays - a great thing to do if you're bored. Watching fireworks from the beach is just awesome with the reflections in the sea.
Lots of children / kids and popular YouTubers like making these What To Do If You're Bored / Things To Do In Summer videos on their YouTube channels. Some of my favourite YouTubers videos include those by Alexa Mae, Aspyn Ovard, Beauty Queen 18, Caroline Tucker, Chloe Lukasiak, Clarissa May, Cloe Coutyre, Hayley Williams, Jessie Paege, Just Like That, Makeup by Amarie, Miss Tiffany Ma, Nikki Phillippi, Our Journey, Shelby Church and Smile 18000.
