Summer Learning | 6 Fun Activities to Keep Kids Engaged
School is almost out for summer! The good news is that there are plenty of fun activities to keep your child engaged and learning. We've put together a list of six fun summer learning activities that will keep your kids engaged and interested in their education all season long!
Whether it's reading books together, participating in a book club, or reading aloud each day, reading is a great way to keep your child's mind active. Reading expands your child's vocabulary and keeps their cognitive abilities sharp.
Puzzles & Board Games
These activities can help improve problem-solving skills, hand-eye coordination, memory, sharpened focus, and teamwork.
From making slime to creating volcanos, science experiments are always a blast, teaching essential principles. Another easy experiment is to have your children check weather conditions to track monsoon conditions.
There is no better way to inspire your child's creativity than visiting an art museum. If your child wants to try something new, like painting with acrylics instead of watercolors, recommend they experiment until they find what works best - this will help them be more creative when creating their own pieces of art later on down the line.
If your child plays an instrument, encourage them to practice each day. At the end of summer break, have your child perform a concert for the family.
Reinforce math skills, such as fractions, unit conversions, estimating, measuring, planning, and problem-solving by having your child help make meals and desserts during the break. If you're doubling a recipe, ask your child to help by changing the quantities of ingredients and working out cooking times based on the weight.
