IT'S SUMMER - FINALLY !


IT’S SUMMER – FINALLY!
By
Linda M. Penn

Your kids are excited, and so are you – school is out, it’s summer – finally.
No homework and no lunches to fix!  (These were always my favorite things about school getting out for the summer)

 Then reality sets in and you realize you will need to adjust to a different schedule and hopefully not hear the kids complain of being bored.  Whether you are a working parent or not, I have some suggestions for you.

Try a summer camp!  No, do not send your kids away to camp.  Have one at home!  WHAT??????  With a small amount of planning ahead, you and the kids can have a fun, entertaining, and yes, even a LEARNING summer camp.  If you can spare an hour a day, you and the kids will be the envy of the neighborhood.  (I will have to ask my two adult daughters the next time I see them about what they thought of our “summer camp” when they were kids.  I’ll report back to you next month, but I think they will say they had fun!)

First of all, have a sit-down meeting with the kids and solicit their ideas about the kinds of things they might like to do over the summer.  If you get the normal response of “nothing,” don’t get discouraged.  Tell them you have an idea - a “Summer Camp” and you might get the “AH, COME ON, MOM, DAD.”  Still, don’t get discouraged.  Proceed on and show them a schedule.  Remember, I am only suggesting an hour a day of  “camp” activities, divided into 15 minute segments.  Each day could have different 15 minute segments.  Ask the kids to help you create a name for the camp.  Here goes:

Free play – bubbles, sticks, rocks, rain boots and puddles, umbrella in a gentle rain, playing in the dirt, dress up,
Create time – make up a play, story, song, dance, do a simple craft (see Blogs for March, April, May, 2015), draw and color a picture, write a letter to Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Susie, Uncle Jim, write a thank you letter to a restaurant, library, make jello or pudding, create with Play-dough or clay.
Exercise time – jump rope, hula-hoops, make up different rules for a ball game, exercise video for kids. 
Computer time – do research – not play games.
Reading time.
Journal time.
Relax and talk WITH each other.  (Please no texting or talking on phone!)
HAVE FUN!

Let me know how your “Summer Camp” is going.  Comments welcome.

NEXT MONTH:  “FREEBIES”  - see you back here the first week of July.
