Thank you to
My oldest finished school last week, I think he was the last school in the area to finish so we are well underway with our summer vacation in these parts. While it’s nice to have the freedom of not running around to school, the kids get bored pretty easily! It’s also my fear that my kids will forget everything they learned while the long stretch of summer rolls on by.
Enter LeapFrog Summer Camp! I first wrote about it last month and the program is now underway. There’s still plenty of time for you to sign up with your kids though!
The program started June 3rd and lasts through the week of July 23rd. Each week, subscribers receive an email from LeapFrog with ideas, crafts and games you can do with your child(ren) for the week. Each idea of course will have an educational spin or aspect to it. Awesome, right? Even better, it’s FREE!
Here’s a break down of the week’s and the themes:
Week 1: June 4-10 Out & About—Learn about the people and places in our world on your way to becoming a global citizen.
Week 2: June 11-17 Caring for Animals—Experience animals in new ways and explore themes of responsibility and compassion.
Week 3: June 18-24 Puzzle Time—Build logic and reasoning skills as you puzzle your way through brain-bending activities!
Week 4: June 25-July 1 Art & Music—Let your creativity run wild as you experiment with a range of media, including handmade instruments, crafts and a home art gallery!
Week 5: July 2-8 Writing That’s Real—Explore fascinating nonfiction topics and try your hand at investigative writing.
Week 6: July 9-15 Storytelling—Bring your ideas to life through storytelling, music, art, drama and pretend play!
Week 7: July 16-22 Science Adventures—Observe, ask questions and draw conclusions as you explore and investigate the world around you.
Week 8: July 23-29 Friendship Week—Get ready for school and International Friendship Day by exploring what it means to be friends.
Oh and I should mention that while the program is aimed at ages 4-7, Nate (my 8 year old) has been having fun doing some of the worksheets with his 5 year old brother too! Check out LeapFrog’s Summer Camp and get in on the activities with your kids!
