Some Fun Activities For Your Family This Summer!
Looking for some fun outdoor activities for you and your family this summer? Be sure to try these simple, imaginative, and fun activities!
The summer holidays are here! They've snuck up on us when we weren't looking. And with the arrival comes the opportunity for some serious family fun! Today we're sharing some fun outdoor things to do with your kids this summer. If the rains allow, it would be fun to have the kids out on the town for a change, so they don't get too much screen time. And you parent, it's time to relax and have some fun too. Because all work and no play makes parenting a hassle.
If you're in Lagos, there's quite the interesting lineup for you. Some of them are listed below.
Check Out These Fun Holiday Activities
If you're tucked away on the island and want to keep the kids close, you'll love this one. It's a non-linear learning centre where kids 5 -18 years old have fun exploring the amazing world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). There are several fun interactive activities for the kids such as: building intruder alarms; 3D modelling and printing; building virtual reality kits; designing master controls for devices and a whole lot more. Good thing is they're also in Abuja.
The place is also pocket-friendly with hourly rates set at N2,100. They also have daily rates, and more long term options, if you're thinking membership. Having fun is great, but it's even better when your kids are learning through play. Learn more about STEMCafe here. Ready to give it a go? Reach them on +234 813 035 3388. If you'd like to give the place a tour, you'll find them on the Top Floor, ENYO Filling Station, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos. You could also check them out on social media @stem_cafe.
Creative Kids Summer Camp 2019
This summer camp for kids aged 1-10 is organized by the Arcadia Montessori School. The camp will run for 5 weeks from 22nd July to 30th August. Each week has a unique theme and will also involve an excursion. This is perfect for you if work or travel will keep you away during the long holidays. This is a great way to engage your children with fun and learning.
There's the Artsy Crafty Week, a creative time when the kids are introduced to legendary artists like Picasso, Van Gogh and Davinci among others. There's also the Budding Scientists Week, the World Safari Week and the Rad Readers Week. Kids will enjoy listening to and reading books. This theme will focus on role play, listening skills and comprehension, as well as writing skills. There will also be French classes twice a week where the children will learn songs and conversational French. If you'd like to enrol your kids at this summer camp, and your pockets can handle the 5000 naira daily fee, call 08092220519 to get started. Try not to put it off for too long, as they have limited spaces available. You could also send an e-mail to [email protected]

Beehive Summer Of Coding
This summer camp is organized by the Beehive School in Ikeja. It's especially great because it offers an activity that not many summer camps offer.

The MMC Free Summer Bake And Read
In this day and age where learning a skill or two is important, coding skills are just as great as cooking skills. Or more accurately, baking skills. The MMC Bakery has consistently organized a baking camp for kids aged 7 to 12. This year, they've added reading to make it even more fun! Classes run between the hours of 10am and 1pm. MMC Bakery is located at 26 Olayinka street, Shadia Estate, Sholuyi Gbagada (Deeper life axis). If you need more information, send an email to [email protected].
