1- Create a summer Treasure/memory box. We can never remember all the adventures we went on in the summer. Help your kids create a box or bucket that they can keep a little something from all the fun they had this summer.
At the end of the summer you can create a memory book or box to hang on the wall and talk about all of their adventures. Have them keep a journal to remember these days in detail. This will help with their writing and hand writing.
2- Create a Garden just for them- Come on if they have their own garden it is easier for them to think about weeding it and taking care of it. Plant things that they are going to be excited about.
This will help them in science to figure out how things grow.
3- Go to a Museum and have a scavenger hunt- Hello helps you get out of the heat for a day and they are learning while searching for all the fun things. (There are usually online maps and aids to help you create the scavenger hunt)
This will help them appreciate art and history depending on what type of museum you visit.
4- Turn a handheld device into personal library. When they are reading things that they want to and on that darn device they never want to get off of it is easier to get the reading done. Help them set up a library and their are apps that will time their reading and keep them on track.
5- Learn a new skill around the House. This not only helps them, but helps you get those chores done. Make it a game to learn a certain amount of tasks for the summer and get them a treat when they have learned them all correctly.
This will just help them out in life.
I am so excited for summer and getting to spend quality time with my kiddos. Make these things you do together. You will also be learning about them when you are having fun with them.
