The summer is a wonderful time for kids -- carefree days filled with swimming, running in the sun, and playing with friends. For parents, though, the summer can feel loooooooong, as we search for interesting things to do each day with our kids that will keep them engaged and learning. To help parents with this task, I put together 20 exciting activities perfect for kids ages 3 to 10. Ten fine motor activities for kids and ten gross motor activities for kids.
With these lists, you can pick one or two activities each day to help keep your child engaged and learning. The summer is a great time to help a younger child develop the correct pencil grip or help an older child learn to bounce a ball on his knees. And many of the activities are perfect for a mixed-age group, so you can entertain your 3 year old while still keeping your 5 year old or 8 year old engaged too.
I hope you are enjoying this summer with your friends, family and loved ones. The summer is a lovely time to spend with special people in your life -- including the littlest ones, our children!
All my best, Renee
