How do you keep those noggins sharp?


We are so excited that summer is finally here, hooray for warm weather!

So tell me what do you do during the summer to keep your kiddos noggins sharp and still have fun at the same time?

We do a lot of reading and exploring outdoors, this year we planted a vegetable garden too! A really good site I stumbled on is No Time For Flash Cards you really must check it out if you have young children, it is packed with fun things to do.

My kids are kind of old for that now but, when they were small they would go to a lot of summer programs at the local colleges.

Have a great Friday!

We sign up for the library reading program where the kids get fun prizes. In addition to that we do arts and crafts that include an educational component (that's the teacher in me).

No Time For Flash Cards is awesome! My son finishes JK next week and then he'll do a few weeks of day camp and other than that, some homework that we do together, for fun, and of course, LOTS and LOTS of swimming!

Thanks for sharing that site. I'm going to check it out.

We signed up for the library reading program even though my kids are not in school as yet, but we are lover of books and all things reading so it's fun for us.

We play outside, laze around, must have down time and boring time. And at some point we'll volunteer at our church a few times.

We visit the library and participate in summer reading programs, and we are starting a garden. In August, we are going to start homeschooling, and I can't WAIT!
