Children up to the age of 14 can join coaching classes for some field sports during the vacation.

Play a game of chess or carom indoors and spend the time usefully.

Spend your summer capturing and sharing memories. While you may snap pictures or film the memorable moments of your vacation, you could explore other methods of documentation. Set down your phone, pick up a sketch pad, and draw the world around you. At the end of the summer, you may share your work with friends and family. Compile your film and pictures into a documentary or else you can turn your home into a gallery for your sketches.

Reading habit is slowly dying due to the advancement of technology. You can become a member of a nearby library and pick books of your interest in the spare time and form a habit. Reading other people’s work is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with different forms of writing and expression. Check out volumes of poetry, stacks of comics, or a series of short essays from your local library. In the summer, your writing is not limited to the five-paragraph essay. You are free to experiment with different genres of writing, like linked short stories or found poetry. Other genres include children’s books, plays, and creative non-fiction. You can even try and attempt small stories which can instill moral values among other children of your age.

It is time to exercise indoors to beat the summer heat. Sometimes it is just too hot to be outside. On these occasions, move your workout indoors. You can check-out a workout DVD from your local library or use one of the numerous free online exercise videos to build your body for the strenuous days ahead in your life. This is also the time to learn the steps of some simple dance or pick a great way to try new exercises in the month long vacation.
