Ways to Prevent the Summer Slide for Your Child
#1. Educational Board Games
Board games offer many benefits for children including lessons such as strategy and fair play. Some games take education even further by providing opportunities to learn important skills such as reading and math.
Educational board games are fun to play, give you quality time with your child, and are good for summer fun and learning.
We love Rummikub in our house, it teaches kids to add up and to know their numbers and number combinations really well.
#2. Plant Things in the Garden
Gardens are a wonderful way to teach children about the plant life-cycle as well as the eco-system of birds, insects and plants even in a small space.
Kids that actively engage in nurturing a garden also learn responsibility and the pride of seeing a tiny seed grow into something that can be consumed or shared with others.
