Something To Jump About
There is something about jumping that kids can't resist! This summer, we will be a hop, skip and a jump away from a fun jumping counting game. This is a printable resource you will want to grab now! It is colorful, tons of fun and it will help the kids stay active and actively learning!
Spell and Spray
Last year we found a super fun way to keep cool while playing hard! Grab some sidewalk chalk and a few squirt guns. I give the kids a word, they write it with the chalk. If they get the word right they can spray the word away with their squirt gun! The heat of the day dries the water in no time so we can spell and spray all day!
For the Birds
Feeding the birds can be a lot of fun for the entire family. Last year we spent a few hours observing the birds in our yard. As we identified a bird, I encouraged the kids to imitate the species. This resulted in a lot of flapping arms and funny chirping sounds. After we had an idea of who visits our feeders, we looked up the favorite fruits of the birds and made a fruity feeder.
Hands on Science
I love to see our sidewalks covered with colorful art. My kids love to create colorful art on said sidewalks so it is a win/win situation! We love to mix up fizzing sidewalk paint for hands-on science! It is so easy to make and it offers kids something different to create with.
Have a Ball
It is important to keep the kids reading and spelling all summer long so that they don't regress in their comprehension levels. One great way to keep younger readers working towards their goals is to write sight words on a beach ball. There are several ways to make this game fun for kids depending on their skill level. Anyway, you play it, the kids are going to have a ball!
