10 fun and Educational Things to do with kids this summer.

As the summer vacation is going to arrive, it is a huge task for parents to take care of kids at home all day and entertain them. As it is said that no writing or reading is allowed in summer, you can do fun educational stuff that does both entertaining and educating children in the meantime. So let us have a look at those 10 fun and Educational Things to do with kids this summer.

1.Hit the library.

Of course, no kid loves to go to the library and read books in summer. But during summers to keep children entertained, they have many interesting programs including prizes, events, and many more.

2. Introduce Audiobooks

As kids are desperate about stories like Harry Potter, you can download them as audiobooks as they are still not very good with their reading skills.

3. Outdoor Fun

You have to take them out away from screens. Going out and playing in the garden close to nature makes them learn so many new things. Nature is the best teacher as always.

4. Create a daily journal

As kids just start to learn writing, you can ask them to start a journal that helps them improve writing and also becomes a beautiful memory from childhood.

7. Grow fruits or vegetables.

By doing gardening, kids will know the responsibility and also learn many important things like how hard it is to grow food, and at the same time, it is a lot of fun for kids.

9. Melt things in the sun.

Kids know that it is hot outside, but do a practical lesson to teach them how hot it will be in summer. Take a bunch of crayons and put them out in the direct sun, leave them, and look after a few hours.

If your kids have any summer homework, assist them and help them in doing this, which will be fun and educational for both you and your kid. But remember not to help them too much. That can spoil them.
