While writing this blog, I fondly remember and relate to the Phineas and Ferb theme song –


“There’s 104 days of summer vacation

And school comes along just to end it,

So the annual problem for our generation

 Is finding a good way to spend it”.

Now we are no geniuses like Phineas and Ferb to be building rockets or fighting mummies. Therewith, with the ongoing corona virus outbreak, we can’t even go outside.

So, how should we spend our summer productively, while ensuring our safety?

Instead of focusing on the (very long) list of things that you can’t do, here are some things you’ll love doing!  

Enroll for Summer Programs for High School Students

As all of us already know, online classes are classes conducted over the Internet.

With online classes, you get to control your learning environment, which helps in better understanding of your course. There are many institutions like Henry Harvin that offer various online summer programs for high school students.

The Henry Harvin Teen MBA program and Junior MBA program aim to help you in your voyage of career discovery.

Register for an Online Internship

An internship helps you gain valuable work experience, explore a career path, gain confidence and develop and refine skills.

There are various platforms providing online summer internships to students. These virtual internships give students a chance to acquire more knowledge and also make their CV more valuable.  

Get Creative!

Summer break is the perfect time to unleash the artist in you.

Here are some ways in which you can express your creativity –

  • Write a song
  • Draw a picture
  • Make up a dance 
  • Learn to knit
  • Paint old flower pots or glass bottles 
  • Make candles
  • Write a story

I’m sure you will find something that interests you in the list above.

Here’s a tutorial on candle making!

Learn a new language

There are numerous reasons to learn a foreign language – from its cognitive to life-enriching benefits, developing a bilingual brain could be a worthwhile experience that would transform your life, both personally and professionally. 

And there is no better time to learn a language than while you’re bored at home during summer.

There are numerous online websites and apps that give language learning courses for free or at a very low cost.

Duolingo, Busuu and Babbel are a few such websites.

Maintain your fitness

Being physically fit and active is very important especially among students as being fit ensures a healthy lifestyle and helps build better self-esteem and confidence.

Moreover, these days when we are devouring all the delicious snacks that our moms are cooking, it is necessary for us to exercise.

So go get that body moving! 

Write in a Journal

Sitting at home binge-watching Netflix might not feel like much, but we are actually living through a major historical event that people will learn and talk about for generations.

Writing a journal will help you not just preserve your memories but also will help you process your feelings about this time that manages to feel simultaneously terrifying and immensely boring.


When we come to think of it, there are actually a lot of fun and fruitful things to do during summer (most of which do not require us to be Phineas or Ferb).

We can learn a lot of new skills, or better the ones we already have. All it takes is a little motivation to get up from bed!
