Promotional Merchandise to Keep the Kids Busy in The Summer Holidays

The Summer holidays are almost upon us and it can be hard to keep those little ones entertained, so why not help the parents out with promotional giveaways for the kids.

We all remember those days where we had six weeks off school in the Summer. Sounds like bliss now doesn't it? Yet when we were younger six weeks was like a lifetime with the last two weeks of the holidays being the most boring. All games had been played, all films watched and you just wanted to go back to school to see friends. It can be extremely difficult to keep kids entertained over the long Summer holidays. So by providing personalised giveaways for parents, you can help to keep the kids entertained and the parents sane.

You could encourage healthy activity by providing parents with promotional inflatable crocodiles or armbands for the younger ones. Swimming is not only good for physical health but also emotional health as it is proven to improve moods and decrease anxiety. It is also an activity which can be enjoyed as a family.

To encourage physical activity you could also provide a promotional skipping rope. Skipping ropes are popular with children and adults alike and have been used for generations in childrens games and as a form of exercise. Juggling balls are also a popular giveaway, as it is something children can play with on their own. With six weeks to practice, they can be pro's when school eventually comes back around and could even take them into school for 'show and tell'. Even juggling has benefits as it increases coordination, as well as increasing concentration levels which is always going to be a good life skill.

For more group activities you could giveaway a personalised Trump card game. 'Trumps' is a very popular card game amongst children with thousands playing it each day. This is a really effective way of marketing your business. Each card shows a list of numeric data and the aim of the game is to compare the cards with someone else and whoevers is higher wins. You can personalise these cards to your own organisation, meaning whoever plays it is going to learn more about your organisation. You could even prepare them for going back to school with promotional pencil cases, pens and pencils.

Whatever the gift, brighten up the Summer holidays with your personalised giveaways.
