25 Things To Do This Summer

9:13 AM

It`s summer vacation here in the Philippines! I`m sure, a lot of kids are bored, staring at their computers at home, wishing there`s something to do with the plenty of time they`ve got. After all, they`ve been badly wishing for summer the whole-year round so we must help them find something to do!


Honestly, I`ve been pretty bored myself since Monday, after a week-long unexpected vacation. The moment my pastor friends stepped into the plane back to Narita…ah, I feel like summer has become a reason to cry. Ever felt like crying yourself to sleep in a sunny, lonely summer afternoon? Aaargh! I don`t even want to think about it! ;)

{I think the loneliness really comes right after a fantastic week at the beach. Hang-over. }

Since most of us can`t fly to Paris for summer break or afford a two-month vacation by the beach, let`s make a list of things to do for summer so we could all avoid these lonely summer afternoons everyone of us dreads!


Please don`t hesitate to leave a comment if you`re thinking of  more things to do! Let`s share ideas on how to spend our days happily under the sun! ;)


P.S. I intentionally didn`t write down Facebook, Twitter, or Wii. Let`s go outdoors, bask in the sun and get our hands dirty! ;)

2. Play Waterbomb With Your Friends. You can do this on your backyard, on the park or on the street {Be careful with cars, please!}!   This is what summer is all about!

  1. All great ideas! My goal this summer is to get my kids outside playing as much as possible. It's good for them and gets the imagination going so much more than being inside. I plan outside picnics and get my kids fun sunglasses to encourage them to go outside. They have really fun styles here: http://www.sunglasswarehouse.com/kidssunglasses.html Happy Summer!

  4. @davaoena Hi Davaoena! Thank you! ;)Is it really hot there in Davao? We only started to feel the summer heat 2 days ago here in Manila. It`s been really cool..and sometimes cold even at night.

    I`ve also been staying indoors the past summer vacations... It`s really a good idea to go out and play this time! Enjoy your vacation! ;)

  5. For me, putting my feet up and watching a wondering movie with a glass of wine. My best way of relaxing.
