25 inexpensive ways to take children for the whole summer
To invent entertainment for your child is an invaluable experience. Especially when it can be done without spending money.
We offer you a selection of unusual, but at the same time simple ways to take children.
1. Make a roadway for machines from the adhesive tape.
2. Insulating tape can also be used as an alternative to chalks.
"Divide" the field for classics or any other game - it will take your child for a long time.
3. Several sponges for dishes and a pair of colored crayons - all that is needed for an impromptu darts tournament.
4. Do you remember paper dolls for carving, to which various clothes and accessories were applied?
You can make the game of dressing a bit more realistic.
5. Exploding packages with paint will turn the roads near your house into a real work of art.
To make colored bombs, you will need:
- packages with Zip-lock;
- corn starch;
- food coloring or watercolor;
- paper towels or napkins.
Mix the starch, vinegar and dye and fill the mixture with one-third of the pack. Then pour the soda into the middle of the napkin and form a bomb from it. Put a bomb in the package and seal the bag tightly. Then shake the contents well. The package will start to swell and in a few minutes there will be an explosion, which will color the streets with rainbow colors.
6. Interesting and colorful drawings will be obtained if you paint with food coloring on liquid glue.
As a "canvas" you can use plastic covers from sour cream or cheese.
7. Another way to introduce the child to the creativity with the help of bubble bags, paints and paper (an old piece of wallpaper will do).
8. Make a tarpaulin to play the ball yourself.
You will need a tarp, a rope, scissors, a marker and an adhesive tape.

This lesson will calm the child who is rustling.
10. Make a river of foil and a bottle of water.

You can print the letters and ask the child to redraw them.
14. Beat the tent city. And do not forget to build a fire.
15. Make a jet balloon.
You will need:
- rope or fishing line (about 2 meters);
- 2 chairs;
