In 100+ degree heat, it’s too hot even for the pool. Long summer days require creative thinking to keep young children having a good time while staying active. The following ideas require a little planning ahead to gather supplies, but most of these materials are readily available in homes with young children.

Set up an art center

Paints. Use a small kids table, or cover a large table with newspaper. Lay out finger paints, water colors, and washable paints and let your little artists show off their stuff. Be sure to provide several different styles of brushes so they can experiment with the kinds of designs they can make with various brush strokes.

Clay and play dough. Great tools to use with both modeling clay and play dough include plastic utensils, mini muffin tins, and cookie cutters.

Don’t forget the art show! Proudly display finished artwork. Attach paintings to a string or twine with clothespins (like a laundry line), or with magnets on cookie sheets. Set clay creatures and play dough creations on a shelf for your family’s own show and tell.

Use the bathtub as a mini aquatic area

Make it fun! Fill the bathtub fuller than you normally would. Add some bubble bath and water-safe toys and let the kiddos have an extra long time in the tub.

Blow bubbles with bubble solution for them to “catch” and pop. (When you’re stuck in the house, the bathtub is the perfect place for this.)

Parents, don’t over sweat the splashing. Use a large towel to wipe up any water, and your bath floor will be clean! Another household job you can cross off your list.

Let your children into the kitchen

– There are some recipes i posted earlier like:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nutella Crepes

Homemade cotton candy

Homemade gluten free Oreo cookies

Banana Split Pizza

Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

 

To make tens and ones in a fun way just get stick that stand for the tens value and have the kids stick 10 seeds in each (like lentil seeds), and for the ones value they used beans.

Doesn't it look nice? 🙂 I like to show my students' work all the time

I divided the class into groups after explaining and discussing the meaning of a desert. We discussed the plants and animals that live there as well as the weather.

I divided the class into 4 groups giving each group one contruction paper, picture of some animals that live in the desert, a cactus plant, and sand.

This main activity was to see they act with their teams. I emphasized that teamwork is very important. I assigned leaders in each group and they distributed the work amongst each other. Have a look at some pictures:

We are currently learning about corn we made corn art craft. First get 2 corn coloring pages (back to back) have them color it, then paste green tissue paper on the leaves. Get paper that you don’t need and have the kids roll them into balls staple the 2 corn coloring papers together put the paper balls inside then close it by stapling it. You can decorate with a bit of glitter

I got fake leaves and hung them on the rope and put the corn art in between. It's a field of corn 🙂
