10 Weekend Activities for Kids
Break out some educational games
Do you know the benefits of math games? Even the simplest card games (like Blackjack!) will help support your child’s number sense. You can find different math games online and print them off at home or order a few fun educational games online to keep your kiddos entertained!
Become a family of writers
Grab a notebook and start writing. One of the best ways to become a better reader or writer is to do more of both! Writing as a family, and sharing your writing aloud, shows your child the importance of writing and allows them to experiment as a writer, free of judgment. This isn’t the time to critique their writing! Just let them write and then praise what they do well so they can enjoy writing and are willing to try more and more and more.
