6 Activities Kids Will Love

Dear Children of Vimbly,

There’s more to this city than pizza, parks, and the occasional baseball game. Your life shouldn’t be limited to certain summertime movies, basketball in the park, or, heaven forbid, suburbia. There’s an array of activities waiting to be discovered, whether you want to learn alone or with your family and friends. Wanna learn how to paint outside of art class? Make your own pizza instead of buying a slice? Trampoline jumping?!

Change your routine and try something new.

    Thanksgiving. Fourth of July. And pizza making. This is America. Kids love pizza. Kids love making things. Logically, kids should love pizza making. As they mold their dough, flatten it, and top it off with only the best ingredients like pepperoni, cheese, or gummi bears, kids can use their hands and creativity to create the best dinner ever! Especially that gummironi pizza.

    Learn to Mime - Trial Class

    How do you get a child to keep quiet? Don’t shhh. Don’t play the quiet game. Get them to mime. Miming not only teaches kids the art of silence, but they can also hone their performative skills. Maybe they’ll walk into an invisible wall. Or eat an invisible apple. Or maybe they’ll be quiet enough that you can enjoy the TV.

    The next level up from finger-painting is watercolor. Here, kids can mix, match, and explore their creativity through their own paintings. Improving watercolor techniques and brushstrokes, kids have the chance to paint their own Starry Night...or Sabertooth Tiger instead.
