Aren’t summer vacations the best part of being at school? You know that they’re different from the mid-year Diwali vacations when parents keep bugging you about finishing your holiday homework. This time around you’re simply relieved. An academic year has ended, completely. There’s no more study left to do. No worry till the school reopens. It just about the time you want to spend your own way. And there’s no bad in spending it exactly the way you please. But, what if you could spend it smartly too?
Smart doesn’t have to sound boring, as many of you would think. There are endless ways of making smart work fun. And here, we’re not ever talking about work- It’s just pure play that combines smartness and fun!
Just read on about these exciting activities that will make your leisure time fun and smart as well.
- Mingle With Nature:
It’s a solid trip plan. We bet, you won’t enjoy an amusement park so much as you’d enjoy the company of nature. It’s about the sheer surprise that nature has to offer. You’d never know what the jungle holds apart from what you’ve read in the textbook. A jungle safari is not just full of unexpected thrills, it also pampers your botanical instincts. And spotting some animals from the wild won’t be less exciting ever. Just be careful about having an adult to guide you.
2.Try Exceptional Hobbies:
It’s the most natural thing to crave adventures in the summer vacation, and you can suffice your cravings with a number of unusual hobbies. It can be as simple as collecting vintage postal stamps, or you can just raise the bar by borrowing a camera from an elder and setting out on a photography trip. A hobby like photography improves your observation skills. You start noticing what you might otherwise just oversee in the daily life.
3.Seek Unusual Stories:
For most of the school folks, reading might just not be the vacation thing, since it’s exactly what you do mostly during school. But just be reminded that the world of literature is so inexhaustible and exciting that it may make you skip your good night’s sleep for weeks once you’re lost in a good book. You might just begin with the masterpieces by Julius Verne if you love the world of fiction. You can learn to appreciate poetry, or just set out exploring some brilliant collection of letters by stalwarts.
4.Indulge in a New Sport:
Even if you’re not exactly the sports kind, how can you deny the need to be fit? Summer vacation is your time to find the kind of sport you’d enjoy. Your school may already have several sporting options. But as you’re away from the school you can surely go for some rare sports that challenge your limits. You can go on a spree of visiting sports clubs across the city to find a good indoor or outdoor sport for you. Even for the regular sportspersons, there’s no loss in trying a new one.
5. Rearrange your house:
6. Volunteer a cause:
There’s lot happening in the town while you’re at the school, and there’s so much you can contribute to apart from keeping buried your studies. This summer vacation volunteering would be an activity to try out for sure. Seek out an organization that distributes food among poor kids, or works to provide them good education. You can also go for environmental causes like tree plantation or providing for the stray population.
7. Try out a real job:
It’s never bad to begin earning at an early age. You can use your leisure time to make money by doing valuable things. If your think you’re good at art, you can create some cool décor which you can put up for sale. You can offer a service like tutorship for the kids in your vicinity, or try out assisting at a gadget repair shop which will give you a closer view of your favourite gadgets. An interesting job you can also consider is assisting at a nearby vegetable farm.
We’re are sure you’d be a changed person at the end of your vacation as you pursue one the above activities. Your summer vacation can be a memorable time if you’re willing to care. Rather than turning into a couch potato stuck to the TV, an interesting vacation activity will keep you active by the time school reopens.
