Today is day two of our two week Summer Activities for Kids series where we are sharing a new idea each day for you to stick in your file of ideas for kids.
For two weeks, we will be sharing a daily post with an idea of a summer activity, summer crafts for kids or maybe even some summer snacks.
We are also running a two week long Linky Party where you can share your Summer Activities too! At the bottom of this post, be sure to link up! I have a Pinterest Summer Board where I am sharing all these activities and some of the party link ups too so be sure to stop by and find some great ideas!
Today’s post is from Jessica over at Prairie Girl to Southern Belle! She has such fabulous ideas and today is no different!
Summer is here! Over at Prairie Girl to Southern Belle, I am preparing for our almost three months at home. We are so excited to be together and on a relaxed schedule. We will play, swim, travel, stay up a bit later, play… Did I mention play?
As much fun as this sounds, 3 months of total free time can get a little rough. At some point I start to realize that we need at least a little structure. Anybody else feel like that?
It’s not going to surprise me this year. I did a little planning. Don’t worry! They won’t be doing ‘school’ all summer, but I am going to be prepared with educational activities for each of my kiddos. I’ll be sharing them as the summer progresses, so be sure to keep checking back! I’ll also tell you a bit more about what we have planned in an upcoming post.
Here’s our first activity….
I used a few sticky notes and wrote numbers on them. For Noah I wrote 1-10. Kayla’s were all 3 digit numbers and were completely random. I stuck all the sticky notes to a window (each kid had their own window to work on) and asked them to put them in order from least to greatest.
They have done enough worksheets during the school year! Change it up with this activity!
Another plus is that you can make it harder if they complete this proves to be too easy for your little smartie. Here’s a list of ideas to get you started.
Put the numbers in order from least to greatest.
Order them from greatest to least.
Make a group of odd numbers and even numbers.
Group them by place value (all the numbers wit a 3 in the ones place, all the numbers with a 7 in the ones place, etc. When done with the ones, start over with the tens place and then again with the hundreds place).
Now tell your kid how wonderful, smart and amazing they are and smother them with hugs and kisses before you go and play store (that’s what they are into right now) for the third time this week!
Hi! I’m Jessica from Prairie Girl to Southern Belle. I’m a busy wife and a mom to two great kiddos, and I love sharing how we’re working to make our house a home one idea at a time. When I’m not working on a project, you can find me playing with the kids, out on a date with my hubby or making something fun in the kitchen. I love making new friends so grab a cup of coffee and come on by for a visit!
