How to Keep Kids Busy Year-Round

Written By: happycamper

Keeping Kids Busy All Year Round

Keeping kids busy when it’s warm and sunny out is easy. There are so many options that boredom rarely comes out to play. But, bring on winter, rain, and cold and you have a recipe for kids vegging out in front of the TV or playing videogames on their devices all day. #notagoodchoice

But, it doesn’t have to be that way…really, it doesn’t!

You can keep your kids busy year-round with activities they actually like because they’re at the wheel choosing what interests them anytime they want.

That’s what Happy Camper Live is all about. It brings the fun and excitement of summer camp activities and turns them up a notch…year-round. No waiting for the school year to end to let the fun begin.

What can my kids do with Happy Camper Live?

If your child is interested in arts and crafts, they can learn photography basics or make some cool projects right from home. All they have to do is go to the site and click on the video that will walk them through any activity.

Maybe they’ve dreamed of acting…there are videos to give them some basics in that department too.

Science also takes a front seat with cool experiments using many items you probably already have at home. You don’t have to worry about your child coming to you with a grocery list of items you have to run out and buy.

One of the great things about Happy Camper Live is that while there are plenty of indoor activities to do when the weather isn’t great, there are also just as many things to do when it’s nice out. Happy Camper Live turns into your very own personal camp with a variety of outdoor activities!

We teach baseball hitting tips, soccer tips, and even waterskiing! There are also outdoor adventure camps that let your kids explore different projects. The point is there’s something for every child 365 days a year. You can even get in on the fun and watch a few videos to make it a family affair.

Finding new passions with Happy Camper Live

Besides enriching kids in the areas they’re already interested in, Happy Camper Live also brings new activities and hobbies to them right at their fingertips. It allows them to explore new areas they may never have even thought of looking at before they started using the site. They can find new passions, opening up doors and providing endless possibilities.

Here are just some of the areas we offer…

Happy Camper Live brings kids into the kitchen to learn how to cook simple dishes. A new love for cooking can be born through these types of activities. A budding singer can also be encouraged with our singing technique videos.

Perhaps your child clicks on a robotics video and later develops a love for STEM-related topics. This can even turn into a career down the road…all because they were introduced to a topic they saw on Happy Camper Live. There are so many different activities to choose from that you never know what will happen!

Giving your child access to Happy Camper Live not only helps to broaden their horizons but also gets their bodies and minds moving. In a time when childhood obesity is on the rise, everyone can get on board with an idea that helps get kids active.

If you’re ready to launch your Happy Camper Live subscription and see where it takes your child, just click here to get started. You and your child will be glad you did!
