Summer 2019

Summer is upon us ! What now?

 

50 Fun Summer Activities for Your Kids in 2019:

  1. Bike rides. Take your kids out for a fun bike ride, either near your house, or if the kids are older, take them on a bike trail. Since it’s a hot summer day, make sure to bring water!
  2. Make ice cream. There isn’t a kid (or parent) in the world who would refuse ice cream on a hot summer day. This is a great kids activity in which parents can easily monitor. Here’s a great guide on creating your very own vanilla ice cream.
  3. Meet friends at the local playground. Call up your friends and let the kids hang out together at a local playground, where they can play on swingsets, merry go rounds, and more.
  4. Have a picnic at a local or state park. Getting kids together for a picnic at a local or state park can be a fun group activity. Just make sure to find some shade!

  • “I am so happy to do this.  It has been our tradition at our school to send our newest students, 6th graders, on a retreat on their second day of school.  It is purposeful in its intent to bond the kids as they begin the year.  We didn't always use Nature's Classroom, but what a difference they have made in our experience, for the students and for faculty. Though our goals may not be unusual; for our students to bond and learn something valuable, Nature's Classroom has surpassed anything we had experienced prior. Our students have benefited from the talented teachers at Nature's Classroom and learned interesting life lessons.  As team leader, it is any easy job for me to "sell" Nature's Classroom to my colleagues. I applaud Nature's Classroom and all they are able to accomplish in a few short days.” ~Octavia Sadler, St. Stevens Episcopal School, Austin, TX
