Month: December 2018

Summers are a great time with longer days and warmer weather and you can spend a lot of time outside the house doing different activities. Sometimes parents also join the fun and it becomes a great time for bonding. Here are some good summer ideas- some can be used indoors and some are better suited for the outdoors.

  1. Tie a hammock on the lawn. This provides many hours of fun, apart from the fact that your child can spend some time in the clean air benefitting from the sunlight and getting vitamin D.
  2. Ask your children to help in the yard work, and allot work according to age. Allow them to get dirty without worrying about germs and stuff.
  3. Using old sheets create a fort- this can be inside a bedroom or on the lawn. Children love to play such games with friends.
  4. Go through the nearby gardens hunting for flowers, butterflies, and
  5. Doodlebuckets is one place that has many amazing toys and games that can be used for many activities and parents can choose one of the many ideas available here.
  6. Have a small scavenger hunt for the kids inside the home.
  7. Get a blackboard or a special surface especially for the kids. Allow them to create murals, paint using whatever medium they want to use- crayons, chalks or pencils.
  8. You can create an indoor car racing track for the kids. They will enjoy racing cars with their friends or you can try beating them.
  9. Play balloon basketball inside a room. You can create your own small court either outside or inside the living room.
  10. Create an indoor bowling alley for the kids. Small items can be used as the pins and a small ball or even marbles can be used as the bowling ball.

The main aim of all these activities is to keep the kids occupied, away from the electronic devices and TV. This will be a lot of fun and a great time to bond for the entire family.

Isn’t it strange that women have reached space and yet are hesitant to ask a man out on a date? It is time to change that all and women must take the reins of their relationship into their own hands and not wait for the opposite gender to make the move.

  1. You will be the boss: Why should you wait for someone to decide which direction the relationship will move in. You can decide every move if you make the first move! You can decide the venue for the next date, the menu etc.
  2. Guys will love the change: there are several progressive men out there who like the women to take charge and be in the forefront. Your guy will be glad you made the move if he is progressive.
  3. You might lose him to someone else: Waiting for him to make a move might be a costly mistake because someone else might take the opportunity and ask him out.
  4. Your love interest might be blind to your feelings: Some men are so immune to hints that your crush might not know you are interested until you tell him!! Guys are often clueless and need to be told everything explicitly for them to understand.
  5. Asking shows you are serious: It shows you have the capacity to achieve what you want and are a go-getter
  6. If you won’t ask, no one will for you: You must fight for what you want and not depend on others to do it for you because no one will.
  7. It will earn you respect: Since, it is still uncommon for girls to ask guys out, your being able to do it will relay the message that you are a confident human being comfortable in your skin.  Who knows your man might get you  bags at!
  8. It is the right thing to do: in this age and time there is no time to wait for good things; you must make them happen.
