Summer learning takes a different approach
Summer is a fun time for you and your kids to relax and enjoy the break from school, but that doesn’t mean you should stop learning. There are plenty of exciting ways to learn while still enjoying the warm weather and Pure Flix is here today to share their ideas for how to keep your kids learning all summer long! Come fall, their brains will be stimulated and ready for a new year full of learning and new activities.
Give them chores
A great way to teach your kids how to take care of themselves and their surroundings is by giving them a set of household chores. Having the responsibility of washing the dishes, cleaning their bedroom, or taking out the trash is a small yet effective way to teach them to grow up with a contributing spirit. To keep the chore process easy for you and your family, utilize a chore chart for kids as well as chore cards for kids. Your kids will get accustomed to helping out around the house and eventually it will become less of a chore and they’ll be asking you what they can do to help out and make things easier for you and your household.
Go on a nature hike
You can get some exercise while also keeping your kids’ minds active by going on a nature walk this summer. Help your child learn more about their surroundings by going to a local park and hiking around while viewing the leaves, trees and wildlife around you. Your child can embrace the natural science right outside of your home, and experience the behaviors of animals like birds and squirrels. Later when you get home, have your kids write down their observations so they can look back on what they learned that day.
Watch educational content
An important component of keeping your kids wanting to learn until school starts up again is to keep things fun. On a rainy summer day, stream homeschool movies and tv shows on Pure Flix to engage their visual learning skills! You can pick videos from different subjects and your kids will learn something new without even realizing it. You can use the educational movies all year round too to keep things interesting during school breaks or on weekends.
Play with sidewalk chalk
Visit a museum
Who said that field trips are only for the school year? Visit a science museum that has hands-on activities for the kids. Watch live experiments, check out a planetarium, or explore the dinosaur exhibit to wow your kids and keep them engaged. Check your local museum’s event calendar to see what days offer special experiences or family deals!
