Whether or not child gets bored this summer, I hope these ideas help!

  1. How many different ways can you find to make homemade ice cream? What is your favorite? Can you make it with the help of an adult? Here is  an easy one.  ice-cream-in-a-bag
  2. If you could do anything you wanted this summer what would it be? Write a letter to your parents/guardian explaining why you should be able to do this. Your letter may be funny, silly, or it may actually work!
  3. What is graduation?  Have you ever known anyone who has graduated? Have you ever graduated yourself? Describe the experience.
  4. What is summer solstice? Write a story about the summer solstice to share with someone who doesn’t know what it is.
  5. List ten facts you know about summer.
  6. My favorite teacher last year was __ because he/she…
  7. Write a list called, “How to Have a Super Summer” to yourself.
  8. Write a “snail mail” letter to an older relative or friend. You will make them happy.
