Summer is a time of year that most kids look forward to because they are out of school and can have more fun. However, the coronavirus has changed the atmosphere of Summer for most.
More families have reached out to companies like ours to help fill gaps that the children have from the coronavirus pandemic starting during the school year.
Although many children are on summer vacation now, they struggled during the school year to achieve school success because of the online distance learning.
As a parent, it is essential to ensure that your kids are still learning over the Summer while still having fun. Let me show you some easy Summer learning activities that promote learning and fun.

Read Read Read (It may not sound like fun, but reading is a super easy Summer learning activity.)
Reading is an integral part of everyday life. In the Summer, encourage your kids to read things every day.
Here are a few ways they can read “in disguise”:
- Nutrition Labels
- Directions to putting together new furniture
Although they don’t have to read in those ways, you can have things about their favorite things.
For example, I have had a student who loved sharks, so we read everything about sharks.
This can include:
- Library books
- Online resources
Kids love to have scavenger hunts. They can be adapted to easy Summer learning activities.
- Word scavenger hunts around the house.
- Nature scavenger hunts with different rocks, figs, and sticks.
- Ingredient scavenger hunts in the kitchen to find various items for a recipe.
- Color and number scavenger hunts around the house for those just learning their colors and numbers.
- This scavenger hunt looks like a lot of fun!
In most school systems, students have art weekly. They missed out on half of the year because of the pandemic. Crafts are a way for students to enjoy arts and still have summer fun.
Kites are a fun way for your kids to learn about shapes, colors, and can show their creativity. You can have your kids create their Kites using popsicle sticks, glue, paint, paper, and strings.
- Scented Bubbles
Kids love playing with Bubbles. Bubbles are a cheap and creative way that kids can have fun. You can upgrade the kids’ bubbles to create scented, colored bubbles using food coloring and essential oils.
- Paper Plate Llamas
Llamas are all the hype for kids today. An easy way for kids to make their own special Llamas is by using paper plates, markers, glue, scissors, and any cool gems to glue on their Llamas.
