Don't let summer boredom happen to you! Here are some fun activities for you to do with your kids this summer that will keep your kids (and you) happy.
This can provide hours of entertainment as your child plans the rules and objectives, creates a board, and designs dice or cards. Of course, there is also the joy of testing out the game! You can find tons of blank game board templates on line that your kids can customize. You can also make your own dice out of card stock or put stickers on the side of regular dice to customize the sides. There is no end to the creativity (or the fun.)
Flat Stanley! I hope you all remember these books from when you were kids. If not, run to the library right now and check it out. Flat Stanley is the story of a boy who get's flattened (and sent through the mail.) You children can create their own Flat Stanley and send him out into the world. Whoever receives your Flat Stanley takes a picture of themselves with Stanley, sends the picture to you, and sends Flat Stanley to another person. You can do this on your own with people you know or go here to register for the Flat Stanley Project. They have a list of registered participants you can send you Flat Stanley too. Flat Stanley has been all over the world! Give it a try and find out where your Flat Stanley goes.
