8 Activities Your Kids Will Love To Do In Goa

STAYCATION: Whether  you are visiting Goa or live  here, use the monsoons as the  perfect excuse for a staycation  at one of the many resorts  and hotels out here. The room  rates are lowest during this  time of the year and very often  even f ve star resorts roll out  attractive discounts on hotel  services and freebies for guests.  Further, imagine leaving your  kids at the hotel’s kid room  and getting a couple of hours  to unwind for yourself too. All  you-can-eat buffets, swimming  pools, entertaining activities  for kids, and quality family  time are just some of the  reasons why you must opt for  a monsoon staycation. 

WATERFALL EXCURSIONS:  Goa comes alive during the  rainy season with natural  waterfalls springing up in  remote corners of the state.  Most of these are very easily  accessible and serve as good  picnic spots for families.  Kuskem, Tambdi Surla,  Netravalli, are just some of the  popular seasonal waterfalls  frequented by locals in Goa.  Ideal for kids above 7 to 8  years of age, half day and full  day excursions can be easily  planned to one such waterfall.  Just remember to pack in lots  of snacks because hungry kids  are not happy kids.

LIBRARY WEEKENDS:  Well, it is rightly said that the  earlier you sow the seeds of  love for books, the higher the  chances that your kids will  enjoy the activity. We have  two wonderfully stocked  libraries in Goa funded by  the government, one at Patto,  Taj Exotica Resort & Spa  # goa for kids  75  www.planetgoa.in  Panjim and the other at  Navelim. These central and  state libraries have dedicated  f oors for the kids, as young  as 1 year old. With multiple  toys, cute little desks, picture  books for the toddlers and lots  of fun to read books for the  elder group, a library day out  is the best play gift you can  give to your kids. There are  also several private libraries  and bookstores around Goa,  perfect for the slightly older  children, who love to read. 

INDOOR SPORTS: Did you  know that Goa has its own  FIFA recognized futsal indoor  court, that too in Margao?  Located within the campus  of Chowgule College, there  are regular futsal classes held  for kids of all ages, and there  is an under-10 futsal team as  well. Understandably, during  the monsoons kids don’t get  to play outdoors much, and  thus, enrolling them for indoor  sports is a good option. There  are indoor badminton and  table tennis classes and play  spaces as well. Caculo mall,  Mall de Goa and Rush at  Porvorim have play zones for  kids. 

HOBBY CLASSES: Find  something that interests your  kids, and enroll them into some  short term hobby classes. Not  only will your child learn a  new skill but will also make  friends and improve their social  skills. 

FORTS & HERITAGE SITES:  Goa has a rich cultural heritage  and the many forts dotted  around the state are just an  example of the strategically  important role that the  state has played in the past  thousands of years. 

WILDLIFE SANCTUARIES:  Goa is the only state in India  where the wildlife sanctuaries  remain open throughout the  year. Yes, that’s right! So pack  up your bags and head out  with your kids to explore these  treasures. Most sanctuaries  allow a car permit but it is  highly recommended to go  on an open jeep, and bike or  cycle in the less dense forests. If  you are up for it, you can even  opt for guided walks offered  at some of these wildlife  sanctuaries. The Chorao bird  sanctuary comes alive at this  time of the year and is a must  visit for kids who love bird-  watching. 

SPICE PLANTATIONS:  Although a year round  destination, the spice  plantations are beaming  with renewed freshness in  monsoons, and are a perfect  option for a day out with your  kids. You get to unwind amid  scenic beauty and your tiny  ones can enjoy water swims,  elephant rides, delicious local  meals and much more. Ideal  for kids as young as 5 or 6, the  Ponda region is dotted with  multiple spice farms.  The golden rule while  enjoying any activity with your  kids is to get them onboard  with the idea. If your child is  resisting a particular activity,  you will have a tough time  making them enjoy it and are  most likely to end up having  disgruntled kids.  And f nally! Let kids be kids  and allow them to get drenched  in the rains once in a while.  You can check out the quick  health tips we have rounded  up for you, to keep your kids  healthy and strong.
