Whether you have kids who are starting preschool soon or they are in their early years of education, keeping their minds busy during the summer is imperative. Making sure they retain the information they learned during the year can be hard, and research has shown that kids will lose up to 30% of their knowledge during the summer months!
Thankfully, there is a ton you can do to keep your kids occupied and excited about learning. I have these incredible Math and Literacy Summer Centers to help you on your way. These are just perfect for younger kids of early elementary age or even preschool! My 5 and 7 year olds love them!
You can print these out on regular computer paper and give them to the kids, OR you can even get some laminating sheets and use a dry-erase marker so you can use them again and again! I love doing it that way. It’s especially good if you have more than one child who wants to learn!
