Summer break is just around the corner which means lots of relaxing in the sun and going on vacation. If you have children, it can be difficult to think of affordable things to do to keep them entertained over the summer months. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a lavish vacation or go on expensive days out. There are so many things you can do that won’t break the bank. Here are some budget-friendly ideas of things to do with your children this summer break:


A picnic in the park

One of the most budget-friendly things you can do over the summer break is to have a picnic. Picnics are a classic summer thing to do and are so much fun for people of all ages. You don’t have to travel far, simply walk down to your local park. Before you enjoy your picnic, you can go on a walk along the river or play games like eye spy. You can pack whatever you like for your picnic. Sandwiches, fruit, juice, chips, and a sour gummy worms soda can from Dylan’s Candy Bar for the kids are all great options.

A vacation close to home

Your family vacation doesn’t have to be on the other side of the world. The best vacations are usually the ones that are closer to home. Make new memories and explore more of your city or state. By taking a trip within your own state you’ll spend a lot less on travel and it will be a lot less stressful. There are probably so many restaurants and attractions near your home that you won’t have been too. This is the perfect opportunity to find new favorite places!

A trip to the beach

If you live close to a beach this makes an affordable and fun day out for the family. Take your own food and have another picnic to cut back on food expenses. If your little one is in need of a new swimming costume then this girls ruffle tankini from Dylan’s Candy bar is perfect. With sweet lollipops and candy, this is totally adorable. If you’re spending the day at the beach sunbathing, building sandcastles and paddling in the sea it’s important not to forget to apply suncream. Applying suncream to children can be a nightmare but with the sea star glitter sparkle cake sunscreen, it’ll be so much easier.

Camping in the garden

On days where you need a break and the kids need something to do, camping in the garden will go down a treat. It’s like a mini vacation in the garden to kids! Help them to set up their sleeping bags and a tent and they’re good to go. Don’t forget to get candy and a few games to play like beach paddle ball. You can get 21% off all of this and more with our exclusive Dylan’s Candy Bar coupon code. While camping you can tell stories, toast marshmallows and explore the wildlife in the garden. Camping in the garden is especially convenient for little ones who may want to come back inside and sleep in their own bed when they have had enough.
