10 Fun Summer Learning Activities

Learning loss is a summer phenomenon where kids tend to forget some of what they are learning in school over a long, lazy hot summer of mindless fun. Summers should be fun, children need a break, but that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop! Here is a round up of activities that are fun for kids, and teach them at the same time.

  • You are so right; summer is a time when kids aren’t in school mode at all. It’s a great idea to find fun and enjoyable learning activities. Wonderful roundup!

  • Great list! I pinned it! You have to be so creative with activities in the summer since it’s so hot here in TX.

  • We try to homeschool through the summer, though we seemed to take a lot of July off. They do tend to forget and then there’s tons of review when they go back, that’s why I wanted us to continue to skip all the review…it gets boring for them.

  • What a fun list of educational activities. My kids always get a real kick out of dry ice.
