Have Fun Together

Even if your child doesn't participate in a structured program over the summer, there are still a lot of wonderful ways to have fun and keep learning. Here are some suggestions from the Grace staff:

  • Go to a museum or a park
  • Try to limit screen use. We know it's tough! But kids need a break after a year of intensive screen-based learning
  • Cook or bake together
  • If you have young kids: work on self-care skills like toilet learning, getting dressed, making a snack, packing a bag to go outside
  • Play board games! It's an amazing way to learn counting and strategy skills, and to connect and practice social-emotional skills
