    I like you on Facebook and what we do over the summer is use workbooks at home and take trips to the library and bookstore story hours.

    I liked you on fb (Jennifer Messner M). To encourage reading and learning over the summer months I let the kids pick out their own books at the library. I have found that if they are truly interested in the books they are more likely to read them.

    I’ve been you Facebook fan for awhile now.
    Summer camp and visits to the museum, aquarium and zoo help keep my 2 year old smart all summer.
    I also follow his lead when it comes to his favorite books and activities.

    I recently created a “portable art classroom” (as someone termed it), that we used in our driveway — it allowed my 3 year old daughter to paint, practice fine and gross motor skills, and explore textures in nature. We also utilize various water toys in a similar fashion. AND, since our local library has continued its programs for young kids over the summer, we are taking full advantage. (In the past, due to budgetary restrictions, summer programs were suspended.)

    …oh, and I “like” you on FB, too. (BarbaraMaysBurns and AtlantasFrugalMom) :o)

    I love what you said about an Active mind is an active body. The girls are spending a great deal of time outside this summer. It’s great to keep them from sitting around wanting to watch TV all day but I would like to see K do a bit more reading. She loves it but her activities schedule does not allow for it right now.

    My daughter and I have a reading plan in place and I downloaded some great math fact apps on our iPad! Gotta keep their brais challenged!

    Already LIKED!

    To help my kids over the summer keep their brains bright, I have them get on and play math games to keep them sharp. My 6-year-old it’s like pulling teeth to get her interested in reading she really enjoys because the story highlights the words, and reads to her and she can read along. They also have interactive games that my 3-year-old can actually play. And my kids go to summer camp so they are active and swim once a week,go to museums and a fieldtrip once a week and do a lot of physical activity.

    Like on facebook (michelle barrett) and during the summer I enroll my kids in art and educational summer camps, we take educational field trips and they participate in the summer reading program at our local library and at Barnes and Nobles.

    We read books and do arts and crafts during the summer to keep everyone busy and active and to keep that mind working. 🙂

    My 7yr old is going into 3rd grade this coming school year, she still reads 30min – 1 hr a day and she works in review workbooks (math & writing) daily through out the summer!

    I liked you on FB. I keep my girls smart over the summer by doing workbooks, playing educational games online and on iPad, going to the library, reading at home and doing fun crafts/ activities.
