It’s almost summer! Let’s be honest…are you wondering how you are going to keep your kids busy, off of electronics, and learning throughout the entire summer! It’s a bit daunting I agree…so let’s do it together! Check out this 6 week summer camp at home that you can easily accomplish with your own kids!
How to Create Your Own Summer Camp at Home
I’ve put together a basic little plan that I’ll be doing with my own kiddos this summer and I would LOVE for you to join in on the fun!
It’s 6 weeks of themed fun, with a science, sensory, arts/crafts and ‘cooking’ idea for each week. I’ve also included some suggested reading for each theme, as well as some ideas for day trips! We will be doing one activity Monday – Thursday, and then field trip Friday!
If you can’t get out, take a virtual field trip! There are so many that you can find online.
Not only will your kids be using their brain, staying active, getting outdoors, and making memories, BUT you will all be having fun together as a family.
Nothing like a little bit of quality time in the summer. So, if in 5 years you want your kids to be saying “Hey, remember that year we did summer camp at home? That was fun!” then hop on over and get your pamphlet with all of the information you will need.
