This Summer Take an Adventure in Learning
Looking for something to keep the kids’ minds active this summer? While free-play is the best, it’s also good to throw in a few more structured activities now and then. Here are a few of my favorite activities to check out. They’re guided but allow for lots of room to put your own spin on things.
Set a goal for how many books your child would like to read. It may help to set up smaller goals to help kids feel a sense of accomplishment and keep them motivated. It’ll also help them avoid the mad-dash at end of the summer to squeeze in all that reading at once. Summer stories should be savored.
This science and sensory experiment is a fun way to make sure everyone stays properly hydrated and ready to play.
Sometimes it is nice to set up opportunities for kids to be more structured with their science; things that’ll pique your kid’s interest and expand their vocabulary. That’s where this kitchen science project comes in.
