10 Great Ideas to Keep Kids Occupied this Summer

Today my three boys are off for two whole months!! And while one part of me is thinking "Brilliant, I don't have to stick to the clock for a couple of months" the entire rest of me is thinking "WHAT am I going to do with them for the next 66 days..!". It would be great to be able to say I'll just run them around outdoors for most of the day, but we all know an Irish summer can be slightly unpredictable at the best of times.

With a 2 year old, 4 year old and 9 year old, it's important that these activities are age appropriate and adaptable for everyone. So here's 10 great ideas I've tucked into my back pocket over the years to keep kids occupied come rain or shine!

Sunny Days...

Nancy Meyers Style

Ok I'll admit it, I have a treasured collection of Nancy Meyers films. Yep, treasured. Nancy Meyers is one of my all-time favourite writer/directors who's behind films like 'Something's Gotta Give', 'What Women Want', 'The Holiday', 'It's Complicated' and 'The Intern'. Maybe her films aren't in the same league as 'Gone with the Wind' but Meyers is a brilliant oscar nominated writer with box office hits behind her; and I have an insatiable love for romantic comedies with dreamy decor!

Watermelon, Cucumber & Feta Salad

If you're heading along to a barbecue and want to bring something to impress, this salad will certainly tick that box! It's so easy to make, tastes delicious and refreshing, and happens to look pretty impressive too. Inspired by 'Watermelon Salad' from The Londoner, here's my version.
