Take tons of selfies with your camera. If you’ll spend a lot of time in the sea, then you should add an underwater camera to your list so you can take tons of photos in the deep blue. If camping or hiking is your ideal summer break, a go pro can also be your perfect travel buddy.
Bring a travel pillow for more comfortable trips.Going on a roadtrip? Before you hit the road, make sure you pack with a travel pillow so you can rest your neck well, have a good sleep, and start your vacation with good and fun vibes.
Make sure you bring a portable charger. Nowadays, we rely mostly on Google Maps or Waze while traveling, which can be a lifesaver especially when you’re travelling in a new city. Don’t forget to keep a portable power bank with you on your trip to make sure your phone is recharged while navigating road trips.
For creative bonding time at home:
Build an indoor fort. Having a great time with the family doesn’t always require leaving the house. Some of our fondest memories happened right at home too! Simply pitch a tent in the living room and set up the tent with sleeping bags, pillows, and blankets just like you would when going on a real camping trip.
Set up indoor gardening. Rain or shine, warm weather or cold, gardening indoors is always a fun activity that kids enjoy. The next time you want to share your passion for being a plantita or plantito to your kids, get them a mini garden tool set to help them grow their own little garden. You’ll have fun, and you’ll add a little more greenery to your home!
Bring the pool indoors. Looking for an instant refreshing pool dip at without the long trip? Set up an inflatable pool at home instead! A family-sized inflatable pool is perfect for the whole family. It’s a much safer way to enjoy summer and is also perfect for at-home pool parties.
Host a movie night. Watching movies is also an exciting way to spend a lazy afternoon with your kids, especially when it’s too hot to play outside.
