Make Summer Learning Easy with PBS KIDS

I have a confession: This time, I don't want summer to end. Usually, every year right about now the kids have me going nuts. But this year, they've been staying busy with summer reading, a couple of classes, learning Spanish(!), and a LOT of games and activities from PBS KIDS.

In fact, this week we had a Summer Learning Swim party with all our friends. But just because they're splashing in the pool doesn't mean they don't have learning opportunities! Actually, we took advantage of all that water and had the kids build their own penny boats. Before we knew it, all the other kids at the pool were joining in the fun. And it's cheap! All you need is a roll of aluminum foil and some pennies. That one little activity kept the kids busy for ages. But what I especially loved was seeing the older kids helping the younger ones.

The penny boat activity is just one of the great ideas you can find from CAMP PBS Parents. Every week, parent bloggers like myself share educational activities, crafts, experiments and other resources for you to explore with your kids. You'll find fun ways to boost your child's math, science, and literacy skills over the summer - and throughout the year!

PBS has many other awesome resources for parents, including:
And so much more. Take a look at their new summer learning website with daily learning tips, extended learning ideas and recommended games and activities now through August 22nd.
Happy summer!
