Keep Summertime Boredom at Bay

Kids Martial Arts  in Troy  - Denny Strecker's Karate

Today I wanted to offer a few tips on how to keep boredom at bay this summer! These are simple tips that you can implement NOW, and will help set your ninja up for success. 

Communicate the plan 
Every evening, take a few spare minutes and review the “plan” for the next day. A little bit of structure will go a long way and will also help events flow smoothly. If possible, try to include 45min-1hr of physical activity doing things such as swimming, biking or practicing your forms! 

Work together to develop effective summertime habits 
Many parents will set boundaries and limitations for their kids which is great, but if you include your kids in the process they will better understand the “how” and “why”. This will help them better understand why certain things are limited and also help them find ways to keep themselves entertained. Talk with your ninja and determine how much electronics time per day & week are appropriate. Then work together to come up with a list of activities they enjoy! 

Be a good role model 
Get outdoors and show them how much fun it is to be active! Children will often make better choices when their role models are doing the same, do so and they will be more willing to give it a try! This can be as easy as having them teach you how to play a game! You can even take it to the next level and have them teach you how to do a few kicks or a form! 

We hope that this has given you a few ideas to use when tackling summer boredom! If you are out and about or on vacation don’t forget we would love to stay in contact by posting a picture or video on our FB page. We hope you are enjoying your summer and can’t wait to see everyone back on the mat!
