I just love summer. In my opinion, it’s the time of year that basically makes life worth living.
The sun is out, you can walk around in flip-flops all day, no one cares if you eat ice cream for breakfast…it’s a good season.
The kids and I tend to take a more relaxed approach to learning over the summer, but I still like to keep them learning as much as possible.
So we found a bunch of at home learning activities for summer that are super fun and great for helping them explore science, math, STEM, literacy, and more!
There are 40 different summer learning ideas below, so you can try as many as you like during summer break.
If you decide to do some of these, be sure to come back and tell us how you liked them!
