During the summer months, it can be tough to keep those young minds stimulated and active. If you don’t, though, fall back-to-school will be a hard transition for your children. Studies show that keeping our brains active and learning is critical for the young and the old (Not that you’re old, mind you!) so it’s a great idea to make learning part of your summer fun. Here are 20 educational activities for kids to keep them learning this summer and provide a little fun for everyone too.
1. Plant a vegetable garden. Most kids love to get dirty so a garden just makes sense! They’ll learn about different kinds of plants, the responsibility of maintaining the garden, and gain a sense of accomplishment from making something grow. And who knows? You may just end up with a lower produce bill in a month!
