I love using printables for learning fun! But don’t just stop with the lesson or thought process once the printable is complete. Add some other fun activities and ideas for the kids to do!
Have a summer scavenger hunt
The secret to a successful hunt lies in a well-planned and organized theme. Whether you choose to focus on nature, history, or just plain old-fashioned fun, the possibilities for a fun scavenger hunt are endless.
Create clues that are challenging but not too difficult, and always keep safety in mind.
Divide the children into teams and provide them with all the necessary equipment, such as bags, pencils, and maps.
And don’t forget to have a prize for the team who finishes first. With a little creativity and planning, your summer scavenger hunt is sure to be a hit with the kids.
Go outside and enjoy nature
Whether you want to relax or be active, there’s something for everyone. You could set up a hammock and enjoy a good book in the shade, or challenge your friends to a game of spikeball or cornhole.
The kids might enjoy playing with sidewalk chalk or jumping on a trampoline. And of course, no summer is complete without a barbecue or outdoor picnic.
So if you’re looking for some easy ways to have fun in the sun, just step outside and start exploring!
Draw fun summer pictures
Summer is a time of fun and creativity, especially for kids. Drawing is a great way for them to express their creativity, and there are many fun summer-related things they can draw.
For example, they can draw a sunny beach with waves crashing onto the shore, children playing in the sand with shovels and buckets, or a colorful ice cream cone with sprinkles.
Drawing summer flowers, like sunflowers or hibiscus, can also be a fun and colorful option.
Other ideas include drawing fruit like pineapples and watermelons, or a summer picnic with sandwiches, fruits, and drinks.
The possibilities are endless and encourage kids to explore their imagination and artistic skills.
