How is your summer going?

We enjoyed a fun week camping at the beach and are now back home catching up from that break. We haven’t forgotten that it’s summer though and are trying to enjoy as much outdoor time at the pool as we can!

Looking for a few more ideas to enjoy with your kids this summer? Here are a few fun things to check out from readers linking up to the Preschool and Kindergarten Community.


Have some squirt bottles that you’ve picked up from the dollar section – or maybe ones from leftover condiments? Try this fun squirt painting project from Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds.



Head to the library and pick up some books about volcanoes and make a volcano together like the one that School Time Snippets made with her son.



Have some of those foam letters hanging around your house? Cool off in the pool and go swimming for letters like Teaching 2 Stinkers did! {LOVE this idea!!}



If you have a plastic bin and some play sand, pull out your small sand toys and a few other things to make a summer sensory box. Under God’s Mighty Hand shares some additional activities too, so be sure to check them out.



Our kids love dice activities – somehow, that seems to make everything fun! Check out the free ABC Dice printables from 3 Dinosaurs for a little writing practice this summer.
