5 Ways to Engage Your Children This Summer

With school no longer in session, it's up to a lot of parents to keep their kids entertained and engaged this summer. And while Social Distancing is still going on, that task isn't always easy. Here are 5 SIMPLE ways to keep your kids engaged this summer

Help your child explore their creative side by asking open-ended questions or making predictions together! Here's a few to get started

  • What do you think cars will look like in 2065?

  • If you found a Genie, what would you wish for?

  • What would you do if you were invisible for one whole day?

What Kids Can Learn from Playing Strategy Games

  • To develop their critical thinking skills

  • To detect patterns in game play

  • To plan out their moves based on what they think their opponent might do

  • To consider and weigh many outcomes as they think about their best possible move

  • To consider and adjust their approach when it doesn’t work

Reading books with your kid is a great way to for them to learn, but it's not the only way to explore literacy together! Ask your child to tell you a story from their imagination. Or practice intentional writing, such as thank you cards.

One positive thing about Social Distancing is this is the perfect time to find and write to a pen-pal!

There is so much to explore outside! Try creating a Neighborhood Bingo Card with items such as:

  • Old tree

  • Flower

  • Flat Rock - perfect for skipping

  • Stop sign

  • Flying bug

  • Dog

Virtual Adventure Camps help kids interact with their own peers. With weekly themes, strategic puzzle games, language learning, and science and cooking projects, this is a great option for keeping your kids engaged through the rest of the summer.
