Last week I was excited to see a ton of activities that my family can use for summer learning activities. We want kids to continue learning during the summer months, but we don't want that learning to be boring! This week I am featuring fun summer learning activities. These activities for kids are hands on. Many of them take the learning into the outdoors. Kids won't even know they are learning all summer!
