Summer activities

As the school year comes to an end and the summer break commences, it’s time for exciting adventures and new discoveries. While the summer break offers an opportunity for relaxation and fun, it’s important to keep kids’ minds active through engaging educational activities. In today’s blog, we’re here to highlight the importance of summer learning and provide you with a range of exciting resources to make this season a time of growth and exploration.

Why is summer learning important?

Research has shown that children can experience learning loss during the summer break, often referred to as the “summer slide.” By engaging in educational activities during this time, we can prevent this slide and help kids maintain their academic progress. Moreover, summer learning fosters curiosity, creativity, and a love for lifelong learning.

Some of the educational activities that children can do during the summer are:

  • Reading Adventures: Encourage children to embark on reading adventures by setting aside dedicated time for reading every day. Reading helps kids keep their mind active and sharp. Create a cozy reading nook at home and let their imagination soar!
  • STEM Exploration: As we have already commented on more than one occasion, more and more jobs are based on STEM areas. The summer period can be a good time to start the little ones in this field. For example, we can build simple machines together with them, carry out scientific experiments or explore nature.
  • Virtual Field Trips: Travel the world from the comfort of your own home! Explore virtual tours of beautiful and iconic cities with wonderful historical sites. Taking this virtual dive will allow you to visit famous landmarks with just the click of a button. These immersive experiences offer a unique way to learn about the world.
  • Creative Arts and Crafts: Encourage artistic expression through various arts and crafts projects. Set up an art station with supplies for painting, drawing, sculpting, and crafting. Engage in collaborative projects or challenge your child to create their own masterpieces.

Whether it’s a quick read or listen with our visual/audio books to STEM education or virtual tours of Mexico City and Paris, Smile and Learn has activities and exercises available to educate your child in all sorts of fields.
