Keeping your children’s brains active all summer long can be a challenging task. Once they’ve put away their books and backpacks, they have cleared the idea of a routine from their minds. Keep these 4 helpful tips in mind when trying to keep your child’s brain flowing throughout the summer:
- If your child requests to watch television or play a game after dinner, ask them to read for one hour before they are granted the privilege. Your child may even get so invested in the book that they pick it up themselves next time.
- Allow your child to cook a meal or two with you each week. Let them measure the ingredients and show them the basics of cooking. Allowing your child to cook during summer break will encourage them to want to help out during the school year.
- Homemade science experiments can be a great way to get your child interested in science. Research safe science experiments that can be easily done at home and encourage your child to ask questions.
- Let your child and their friends play with the video camera and make their own movie. Encourage the director to delegate different positions of the film making process.
