It can be a daunting task looking for projects and outings to have fun with your kid who is having a disability. Summer season is here and you are busy rummaging through all recommendations and ideas online. Your disabled child deserves a lot of fun and attention so that they don't get bored.

Well, in this article, we have compiled a lot of cool ideas to try with your child during summer. We have broken them down into three major categories. Further, we have narrowed them down under each category.

Getting Outside
  • Bikes. There are plenty of adaptive bikes for kids with disabilities. You can help your kid ride it up and down the sidewalk at home or allow them to try this challenge if they like. If you are lucky enough to get some help from your neighborhood kids, the better. Allow them to have fun together.
  • Games at the Park. If you have a nice playground or park around your home, it is ideal to allow your kid to play there. Help them to try out swings and slides.
  • Water Parks. Everyone loves water parks in the summer season. Your kid wants to cool down. If you can get a scooter for them to scoot with around the water park, it adds to their jolly moods.
  • Picnics. Nothing fascinates kids as much as eating on a picnic. Carry something good and delicious and get a place outside your home with your kid. Kids enjoy eating out there where they can explore a lot of things in nature.
  • Pool. A pool around the home is an ideal place to soak and float. It helps you and your kid to keep summer heat checked. Also, play some other games in the swimming pool to allow for muscle development and planning.
In the Community Setting

  • Candy Shopping. If your home is next to a candy shop, you are literally in for a treat with your kid. Take your kid along and try all the flavors they have to offer. Allow them to pick their favorites. Offer help where necessary.
  • Cookies Delivery to Neighbors. Even though this has become a winter activity, it can be a cool thing in the summer as well. And it is simple. Take your kid to the kitchen and allow them to bake cookies with you. Once they are properly set, deliver them to your neighbors. Give your kids plenty of time to handle as much work as they want. Kids are honest with themselves. They admit when they are tired.
Indoor Fun
