This summer, we have made it our mission to continue to encourage our kids to learn new things by doing things in fun and different ways.
The school year ended and summer started. We will have a one kindergartner and a high schooler in our house next year which are both really great things. For our soon to be kindergartner, I am making a book of things we will work on during the summer so that he is ready for his first day of school. I want to continue to encourage him to learn as much as he possibly can so that he is not behind during his first year in school. I am excited to create this book of learning for him.
This summer we will teach our kids new things including showing them how things work, how to make some home improvements, exploring our environment and discussing ways we can keep our resources safe for them and future generations, caring for our garden and fruit trees so that they are aware of where some of their foods come from and how much work it takes to grow them from seeds and bulbs, visit local spots that are educational and so on, the possibilities are endless.
This summer we will continue teaching our kids about sharing with others, why we freecycle, our impact on our environment and our community, how growing vegetable seedlings and sharing bags of food with other freecycler's is how we hope to help end hunger in our community and so on. There is so much more to learn and learning together makes it more fun!
