Top 10 family activities to try this summer
The sun is shining bright and summer is here to stay! We know the sweltering heat can get really intense this time of the year so we have put together a fun list of activities that you can do with your family this Summer ‘22. So dab some sunscreen on and let’s begin!
- 1. Game night
How does staying in with your jammies on and bonding with friends and fam over yummy food and Monopoly sound? Game nights are always a hit and are one of the best activities to indulge in as a family without spending money. Our favourite games to play are Catan, Codenames, and Scrabble.
- 2. DIY at home popsicles
What better way to welcome summer than ice-cold popsicles! The best part about DIY-ing is that you can use existing flavours and ingredients in your fridge and it does not require much prep. You have a plethora of flavours to choose from – orange, apple, pineapple, and guava and use fun molds to stick them in.
- 3. Go bird-watching
Grab your favourite pair of binoculars and head to Ras Al Khor wildlife sanctuary, to keep track of all the interesting species you see. A fun activity to do with your kids would be asking them to sketch the different species of birds and animals they see and compiling that into a collage or a scrapbook.
- 4. Make a homemade movie
It’s always fun to look back and reflect on the simple joys we experienced as kids in our childhood. So, get your kids to create a montage of all their summer memories. Weave all the snippets and moments together using an app. And once it has been made and finalized, host a viewing party for your closest friends and family.
- 5. Arcade day
Arcades are a whole lot of fun for both kids
and adults alike, so why not make a day of it? Pre-plan by choosing a budget to
keep the activity low-cost. Fill a cup full of coins and go crazy with all the
fun games! Don’t forget to win so you can take a couple of souvenirs home!
- 6. Grow a herb garden
Teach your kids about different types of herbs and then get them to plant them in little pots in your garden. It will be an immersive activity for your kids to watch them grow into saplings, and eventually harvest them and use the fragrant herbs for a pasta night!
- 7. Beach day
Plan a day out and about where the sun and sand meet the sea. Yesss, it’s beach day! Pack your sunscreen, towels, flip-flops, swimwear, sunglasses, hats, coverups and of course, a good book to read while you sunbathe! Your kids will love building sandcastles and you can make a whole day of it. Or jetty around the marina with Splash Tours with Discounter’s amazing deals!
- 8. Make a Time Capsule
Create a time capsule with your favourite memorabilia – including drawings, letters, photos, journals, etc. that can fit inside the capsule which you can bury and can dig out on an agreed-upon date in the future. This could be a decade or longer after you bury it.
- 9. Ride a rollercoaster
Dubai boasts a number of fun amusement parks and you know the best part? They are indoor and air-conditioned! Way to beat the heat. Go on and take the entire fam and hit one of the amazing roller coasters and shoot the entire ride on your GoPro. Check out IMG world and avail a whopping 30% off using our Discounter app!
- 10. Plant a Tree
Share the value of kindness with your kids and give back to the environment by planting a tree for every member of the family every year. Educate your family about global warming and create awareness about the ways by which we can save our Mother Earth.
