If your kids are like mine, they are not averse to rotting their brains in front of the TV, Wii and XBox all Summer (imagine those things being at all interesting to kids!) This morning, I created a chart for the kids. I told them they need to spend 30 minutes doing each of these today:
- Something educational on the computer
- Something that makes you move
- Something that you can make or do (a project)
- Something that you can write or read
"Something educational on the computer" included any of the highlighted sites from here, Freely Educate. Tomorrow, I'll add Activity TV to the list of allowed sites. I think this one will keep them interested longer than 30 minutes (yay!).
Activity TV is a digital cable program that also offers its videos online, at ActivityTV.com. The available projects range from origami to juggling, so you'll have to check this one out to see all there is to offer! I know our 4 kids (14, 12, 10, 7) will enjoy this one!
What are your ideas for keeping the kids busy this Summer?
This high quality, 100% free educational find was sent to me from Amy Machin, who said, "My kids (8, 7, 6, & 4) love it!" Thanks, Amy!
