Summer is here and mom’s and dad’s everywhere are excited that they don’t have to pack lunches and drive kids to school. BUT…….. how do we keep them busy all Summer long and avoid cartoons, devices and video games. We really try to limit screen time, but it takes some creativity to keep kids busy. One thing I’ll be doing with Olivia this Summer is the Summer Explorers series. My talented blog friend and also real life friend, MJ of Pars Caeli, has created 8 weeks of hands on learning and exploring activities for parents and kiddos aged 3-12. You can purchase just a week of activities or a whole Summer of fun.
Each week explores a different theme. With printables, experiments, activities, crafts and even book and movie suggestions to go with the theme, you a sure to keep those little minds active and entertained. The first week is now available, and it’s only $8!!!! The theme is On the Hunt. This full week of activities include decoding, hunting, and uncovering hidden messages. Olivia and I looked at morse code (one of this first week’s activities) together and after a little explanation, she was kept busy creating a morse code necklace that spelled out her name.
