The month of August typically signifies the last few weeks of summer before students and teachers return to school. Encourage family relationship building by participating in family activities throughout the month of August. Here are some suggestions!
Wild and Crazy Words
Make writing a little “wild and crazy” by ditching the pen and paper and using unique materials that will make your kids really smile while they’re having fun.
Explore and Write About Nature
In this activity, children look closely at living things in their natural environments and then make books about what they see.
Follow the Word Trail: Organize a Treasure Hunt
Create a treasure hunt out of word-puzzle clues hidden around the home or yard.
Creating Family Timelines
Children can interview family members and make an illustrated timeline of the most important family events and memories.
