We’re all looking for simple, creative ways to encourage summer learning for our kids, right?
As moms, we want those ideas to be fun (and, let’s be honest!) easy to put together.
If you’re looking for a ton of great learning ideas in one place (with simple instructions and lots of colorful photos), you’ll love the new book 100 Fun & Easy Learning Games for Kids by my friends Amanda Boyarshinov and Kim Vij of The Educators Spin on It.
Yes, 100 Fun & Easy Learning Games for Kids is packed with innovative and exciting ways to engage kids in learning, but my favorite part? Each of the activities uses everyday household items.
As a mom, you know how important that is! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve never done “the perfect learning craft or activity” because it required that I run to the store to grab supplies.
100 Fun & Easy Learning Games for Kids uses things like tin cans, rocks, plastic bottles and construction paper–things already in our homes!–to put together these fun learning moments for kids.
In addition, the activities in the book cover a wide variety of topics and use several learning methods to teach these concepts in fun, innovative ways.
100 Fun & Easy Learning Games divides the activities into each of these areas:
- Fantastic Reading
- Amazing Writing Adventures
- Really Cool Math
- Super Science
- Magical Music and Art
- Going Global
