Get into Nature
While I may not be a big fan of nature, I realize how important it is for our kids to learn about the world around them. We have tons of activities planned for summer to include hiking, camping, zoo visits and more.
I cannot express how important it is that my kids get outside in the Florida sunshine everyday. Whether we’re taking family bike rides around our neighborhood, visiting a one of our favorite Orlando splash pads, pools or water parks, playgrounds and more, we will definitely not be cooped up this summer!
This has to be one of my favorite parts of summer! Give us glue, markers, paints and paper as we go nuts with crafting fun to help my kids express their creative sides. BONUS: they can take their time with their creations!
Get Unplugged & Bored
Parents, do you feel me? Our millennial kids really rely on being busy, especially when it comes to electronic entertainment. I definitely plan on having moments where we unplug this summer – no TV or video games or anything to distract us from the lazy days of summer. Allowing my kids to be bored is so wonderful – I find that this is when they play together the best!

My children love learning activities and puzzles, so to them this wouldn’t even be like learning to them, it would just be like adding to their summer fun!
Karen Propes says
These readers would be great to help kids through the summer keep their minds refreshed on being diligent on school type work. Keeping their minds working makes it less stressful when they go back to school. I’ve always had workbooks I came up with from what they had learned in the school year to work on during the summer. I wish I had something like this when she was growing up. My Grandkids have open minds that love to learn and what a great tool to accomplish that.
