Summer Activities for Kids-Digital

Turn summer BACK into a time of adventure, exploration, and discovery for the whole family!

This book of summer activities for kids includes four tightly packed units that offer 55+ fun ideas for a productive summer adventure, including literature pieces, recipes, crafts, projects, field trips, poetry, movie suggestions, recipes, sensory play ideas, printables, and MUCH more!

I grew up right before technology was about to take off and change the trajectory of childhood forever. By the time my own sons came along, summer activities had changed. Children spent more time indoors instead of out. Gone were the days of running barefoot outside, playing make-believe games, and riding bikes during summer vacation.

And now that my boys are older, things have gotten even worse. Nowadays, even during summer, children spend 90% of their time indoors or in structured, adult-led activities with little or no free time to play and explore as children should.

That’s why I created this book of summer activities for kids, to help parents turn summer BACK into a time of adventure and discovery while learning fascinating lessons along the way.

  • Learn life skills with fun hands-on activities and projects.
  • Enjoy delicious summertime recipes.
  • Print out exclusive art trading cards.
  • Explore read-aloud books and poetry pieces for all ages! (Penderwicks, Roxaboxen, The Raft, and, Andrew Henry’s Meadow)
  • Take a field trip into your community.

This book has already planned out your everyday summer activities for kids, so you don’t have to do anything but start using it. (It’s flexible too.)

Age range:  4 and up. The books and activities included have been tested with ages 4-13 with all engaged and helping each other.
