Summer Activities For Kids

Happy Summer and Let the Fun Begin!


“There’s only 18 summers in Childhood…

How will you make this one count?”

-Unknown

Summer is officially here and if you are anything like me you are already trying to plan as many fun and unique activities as possible to keep your restless kids entertained! I was recently scouring the internet for ideas when I found several activities that were not only unique but also affordable and educational. To help all of you other mommas out, I created a list of my favorite finds! I hope you and your kids are able find something on my list to enjoy!

The Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Journal is the perfect opportunity for kids to remain engaged in their reading. The summer program encourages young readers to read 8 books and document their success by writing the name of their completed book and a short description of their favorite part. Once they have completed their journal they can turn it in to their local Barnes & Noble to redeem a free book! Use the link below to print your child’s Summer Reading Journal and see a list of the free books offered. Children can redeem their book between July 1 and August 31, 2022.

Science Sparks | Summer Science Challenges

Science Sparks is a great website that offers tons of experiments for kids to try! The site is well-organized with easy step-by-step guides for you to follow. Although there are many categories of science experiments to choose from, the holiday and summer choices are my favorite! An added bonus – most experiments require supplies you most likely already have at home. Discover my favorites below!
