Need more ideas?
I Am Momma Hear Me Roar has an ongoing Mommy School Series. Go HERE for a list of those posts.
Another great blog is Kids Activities Blog...go HERE. (They have great Lego ideas as well :)).
And one more idea that a reader shared...
Jennifer said that her kids pick a topic to focus on for the summer and then they learn all about that topic. This summer they are doing the solar system. I might totally be head over heels for that idea.
I hope this series has inspired you to make learning fun and play smart!
You can see my Child's Play Pinterest Board anytime for more kid fun inspiration (some learning some not).
Please keep adding links and comments to this post if you wish. I would love the comments section to be a source of inspiration as well.
Have a smart happy summer!
